Vintage Dodgers' Memorabilia for the Collection - Happy Felton and the 1955 Dodgers

Here are a couple more items from an auction lot I won several weeks ago featuring vintage Dodgers memorabilia. Last week I mentioned a LA Dodger pennant that was in the lot that celebrates the "First Annual Dodger Dinner." Now, I share a couple of other premiums that focus on the Brooklyn Dodgers.

You may not know who the portly fellow above is, but I assure you Brooklyn fans do.

Blog Kiosk: 5/9/2017 - Dodgers Links - Bellinger, Wood and a Vin Scully Signing

What a fantastic photo of Alex Wood pitching under a blood red sky.

Last night Alex was fantastic in his five innings of scoreless work. He allowed only two hits while striking out eleven batters on 88 total pitches. Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
"I felt good tonight, had all three [pitches] going and was on the same page with Yas [catcher Yasmani Grandal]," he said. "Obviously helped we had a lot of runs. When you get leads like that, you have to smell blood in the water. Just happy the result was there and hope to continue to be consistent and get ready for the next one."
