Two members of the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers are doing well

I forgot to take pictures of the autographs and I'm not at home. But here's the story.

There was a great event last Saturday at Frank & Son Collectible Show. Two members of the amazing 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers were in attendance signing autographs. There was one tiny problem. This event was going on at the same time as the Dodgers/Dreamfield event in Boyle Heights. {linked here}

Luckily I have the ability to be at two places at the same time. From Los Angeles to City of Industry!

I'm a big fan of this team since it was the first World Series title for the Dodgers. I remember reading articles and books on them when I was a kid. I've met a couple of players from that team but last Saturday was the first time I met Roger Craig and Ed Roebuck. Both pitched for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1955.

In case you did not know, Craig also managed the 1989 San Francisco Giants that went to the World Series but lost to the Oakland A's.

Both were nice and I'm thankful for Frank & Son and Hall of Fame Sports in putting together this event.
