Smyres is almost a figment of our cllective imagination as I know of nobody who has his picture and no one has been aboe to get his autograph, even after trying to get it by following him to motels and looking at the register and even sending him stuff "return receipt" requested or registered.

    As to the others, some years ago (less than 15, maybe kess than 10) Target Stores put out a card set of all the Dodgers from year one to the then present. The cards all had black and white photos I know that Zachary had such a card and i believe I have seen Franklin and Wells. I am not sure about Osgood. The two from the 1930s would not have caught my attention as I concentrated only on 1940 to 1957.
    Good Luck!!

    This one's for penncentralpete, though I wouldn't be at all surprised if he's aware of it already. If he had the disposable income, he'd probably be the one who commissioned it!

    The Brooklyn Historical Society has been running a film series on the Dodgers. This Saturday's offering is The Life of Jackie Robinson, with Jackie as himself and co-star Ruby Dee as Rachel.

    Wonderful photos, but they've been posted for years at BDM.

    Didn't see this posted elsewhere. LIFE released some rare, never-seen photos from the 1955 World Series:

    A CD of Red Barber from 1935, when he was employed by the Reds, is apparently now available:

    I've only had the chance to hear a couple of clips of the mellifluous Ol' Redhead. Wish I could have heard a whole game.
