1962 Cy Young

1956 Brooklyn Dodgers Home UniformBy Jon Weisman

More than 160 items from the personal memorabilia collection of Dodger legend Don Drysdale are available for auction through April 23 at SCP Auctions.

The collection dates back to Drysdale’s playing days at Van Nuys High. The Hall of Famer died on July 3, 1993 in Montreal while working for the Dodgers as a broadcaster.

The auction has come under some controversy, though it is sanctioned by Drysdale’s widow, Ann Meyers Drysdale.

“We thought this through as a family and decided it was time to share Don’s most prestigious awards and memorabilia with the fans and the collecting community,” she said. “Plus, it provides us with a great opportunity to give back to many of the causes that were near and dear to Don’s heart.”
