View Full Version : Calling all autograph experts...who are these Dodgers alumni?

06-30-2012, 10:17 PM
I just acquired a sweet Dodgers book with 73 alumni autographs (not just players, but executives, broadcasters, managers, coaches, even the organist!). I've managed to peg 70 of them, but these 3 still elude me. I've exhausted every resource I can think of to identify them.

Can anyone help me? If I had to guess, I would say they were probably affiliated with the club from the mid-70s to mid 80s.

Thanks in advance.

Believe door #2 is Rudy Law.

I believe I can help. # 3 is pitcher George Culver.

BTW, Culver pitched a no-hitter in 1968 while he was a member of the Phillies.

Thank you both!

As for the first one, it could be John Hale, but I'm not certain.

All in all, a nice mix of names (including Koufax, Drysdale, Snider, Wills, Sutton, and the usual 70's / early 80's greats).

Still kicking around the idea of adding cuts to the theme...

Scans to follow.

It does indeed look like John Hale.

Who is the organist on the album?

Helen Dell

I haven't gotten around to scanning everything, but I will as soon as I can.
