  1. Wow. A lot of Brooklyn Dodgers in this post. Nice. I like the two Drysdale photos especially the one with him holding the ball in his right hand and the glove in the left. Nice lighting on that one. The Pee Wee Reese and Jackie Robinson Sport magazine cover is cool too. I haven't seen any of these before. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Am I the only one who thinks DD looks like a young Jack Nicholson? Or perhaps vice versa?

    1. I see some Jack. He also reminds me of TV Superman George Reeves.
