None of the players on the Hall of Fame ballot were voted in this month, but a few Dodgers will be represented regardless. Official game-used gear from the team’s 2020 World Series run finally made its way into Cooperstown and will be on display for all to see.
The Autumn Glory exhibit at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will hold the Dodgers artifacts that represent the win. They will all be on display through the end of the 2021 postseason after a new World Series winner is crowned.

Clayton Kershaw is represented there with the first ball he threw in Game 1. That ball represents the first neutral-site World Series played in Arlington, Texas. Kershaw will likely join that ball in the Hall of Fame on the first ballot after his Dodgers career is over.
The exhibit also features a batting helmet worn by Max Muncy, as well as a jacket worn by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. Since the World Series was played in a pandemic and with safety precautions in place, the face mask worn by Dino Ebel will also be on display.
But one of the coolest parts will be from Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager. The exhibit will feature a bat used by him in his World Series MVP run, a big part of the reason that Los Angeles was able to run away with a title.

The Hall of Fame also said that they would host special programs in honor of the World Series champion Dodgers this year. That announcement is expected this Spring.
