Guide for Los Angeles Dodgers Collectibles And Memorabilia collectors

Memorabilia that was once signed, owned or used by Duke Snider (who played for the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers from 1947 to 1962), Don Drysdale (who played for the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers from 1947 to 1962), or Pee Wee Reese (who played for the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers from 1940 to 1942 and 1946 to 1958) is considered to be the most valuable among collectors.

Memorabilia that dates back to before the 1950s is considered to be more valuable than memorabilia from the 1960s to present, or more specifically, if an item features any of the team's former names.

Restoration of a Los Angeles Dodgers jersey, uniform, baseball, baseball bat, photograph, scorecard, baseball glove, baseball cap, or Championship ring is not recommended.
