Dodgers fans will always remember Vin Scully as one of the greatest voices in the history of the sport. For the 67 seasons that he called games for the beloved franchise, Scully was a part of our every day lives.
And now, four years retired, Vin is making a slight return to the public eye. This past month, Scully joined social media hoping for a chance to reconnect with fans and talk some baseball. He is also now going to be auctioning off some of the memorabilia he’s acquired from his illustrious career.
Scully has so many memories gathered from those 67 years, that he didn’t even mind giving a lot of them up for auction.
You know, I must be very cold-hearted, because there isn’t one thing that I really felt, I hated to give up. Not one.
Among the items that can be found from the Dodgers legends’ career are personalized bats, trophies, newspaper clippings, and so much more. There is even a Dodgers World Series trophy that Vin is willing to part with.
Among the collection is also a signed piece of paper from the one and only Babe Ruth. Another piece of memorabilia that Vin is surprisingly okay letting go of. He was handed the piece of paper by the Babe himself.
There is also a 1988 World Series ring that will go up for auction. Vin says that he wears it nearly every single day, even in his retirement. Sounds like he will have to find a new ring to wear on a daily basis.
Scully hopes that the proceeds from the auctions can go to his five kids, 16 grandkids, and to charity. The Dodgers legend will also be donating part of the proceeds to UCLA health.
