Vin Scully’s first-ever contract is being auctioned. Scully signed that contract in 1949 when the Dodgers were still in Brooklyn. Dodger fans and sports fans will have an opportunity to bid on this unique memorabilia, of arguably the greatest voice in all of sports, on SCP auctions, per TMZ. The minimum bidding begins at $4,000, and the current bid is at $4,800, with 16 days to go. 

Scully was just 22-years old when he submitted his two-page letter to Branch Rickey, who, at the time, was the Brooklyn Dodgers President. From 1949, Scully began broadcasting for the team all the way until 2016 retirement.

  1. Great memories of a great man!!!! The team of Davis and Hershiser are doing a fine job as I thought they would. But, having listened to Mr. Scully for over 60 years has spoiled me!!!! The beautiful voice, the stories, and his persona will always set him apart from the others. Continued good health, Mr. Scully!!!! You are missed!!!! Go Blue!!!
