Jakie Robinson
Bobby Bragan
Arky Vaughan
Carl Furillo
Joe Hatten
Pee Wee Reese
Ed Miksis
Ed Stankey
Dixie Walker
Spider Jorgensen
Gene Harm?
Al Glowfruddo
Ralph Branca
Hal Cregg

The players ties to jackie is they were all team mates. They were all one the Dodgers in 1947 and were there for jackie's first game.

Enjoy!!!!!!!

Gene Hermanski is the name you have a question on.
Commissioner A.D. Hap Chandler is also there, I believe, under PeeWee Reese.

Nice pick-up! However, I think you mistook Chandler for Vaughan though, unless I am missing the obvious.

Must be some on the back, as I don't see Walker, Gregg or Harm either.

Well my father's good friend spent his whole life collecting autos. He lived in New Jersey and grew up with the Brooklyn Dodgers and Yankees. He is 72 now. He started collecting autos at a very young age. He also became a member on the board for the rooklyn Dodger HOF. So he knew all the player. He was very close with Gil Hodges. He also was a vender at the national shows and never missed any event that had baseball, basketball, football, hockey, movie stars and presidents. He acumulated over 10,000 autos. So he is up and age and sells them to me. His kids dont care about any of his collection so he pretty much lets me have what I want for real good prices. The pictures he has with the players are amazing, along with his stories. Right now Im getting a Babe Ruth auto from him. Cant wait to get that in my hands.

Thanks for all the compliments

Jason
