Some Dodger Goodies at Love of the Game Auctions

Here's my newest post featuring vintage Dodgers memorabilia currently available on auction. This time I take a look through the 'Love of the Game Auction' summer premier catalog, and it fortunately doesn't disappoint.

First of all, there's the above 11" x 13" stadium giveaway card that commemorates the 1966 "Salute to the Stars" celebrity All-Star Game. (Auction Link) As you can see, Milton Berle, Pat Boone, Bobby Darin, Phyllis Diller, Annette Funicello, Dean Martin, Mickey Rooney, Dale Robertson, Sweet Lou Johnson, Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale can be seen on the card. Additionally, the auction listing shares a promotion video from the 1966 celebrity game that includes highlights and some snarky commentary by Bobby Darin. You can watch it below.

Next is the below circa 1950's Brooklyn Dodger tumbler. I am very familiar with the design, having a similar vintage sticker in my collection, but have never seen it on glass like this. (Auction Link)

Lastly, I wanted to point to a couple of items featuring memorabilia from the 1954 movie "Roogie's Bump" -- featuring Dodger ballplayers Roy Campanella, Billy Loes, Russ Meyer and Carl Erskine. Directly below is a movie poster. (Auction Link)

And here's a look at a nice stack of movie promotional stills. (Auction Link) Click on any pic to embiggen.

I've personally never seen this movie, so I promise that one of these days I'll sit down and watch it with a bucket of popcorn. For those who don't know, below is a description of the film, via IMBD:
A young boy who loves baseball develops a strange bump on his arm. The bump has such an effect on his pitching arm that he soon finds himself playing for a major league baseball team.
It sounds a lot like that 90's film called "Rookie of the Year".
