Default April Pickups

It's early in the month, so hopefully things will get better. But for now, I just got these guys…

haha...well played on the April Fools joke. Great dodgers pickups, those look to be in very nice shape, especially the Snider.

Did your folks follow them to LA or lose interest once they left Brooklyn?

OK, definitely had me until I scrolled, call me gullible. Love the Dodgers. There is something that just screams of that era about the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Nope, they didn't follow them. When the Dodgers left Ebbets Field, they ripped out the hearts of everyone in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island and everywhere else. It was unforgivable. Except for taking my brothers and I to Shea Stadium in 1976, my dad never really watched another baseball game his entire life. Same with my mom. Dem Bums had such an unbreakable connection to the community and it's probably something that we'll never see again.

I guess I've got a similar appreciation for the Brooklyn Dodgers; just took a different road to get there. I grew up in the LA area in the 70s. Arriving today, I couldn't resist this '54 Bowman Campanella.

Love all the 54 Bowmans! My 12 year old son is working on that.

Agree with Dan on the 54's. Nice looking set for sure. I'm digging both of the Campy's!
