Spring sports madness...

We recently received a donation of three special sports memorabilia items. 

First, in honor of March Madness, we have the November 27, 1978 College Basketball issue of Sports Illustrated.  "Michigan State's Classy Earvin Johnson" - Magic Johnson - is featured on the cover.  The copy is in good condition. We are offering it for $5.

Our second treasure is the 1958 Los Angeles Dodgers Year Book.  As noted on the cover, this is a souvenir of their first Major League season on the West Coast, after moving from Brooklyn at the end of the 1957 season.  The copy is in good condition. We are offering it for $15.

We also received a copy of the New York Yankees 1961 Yearbook, also in good condition.  This season was noteworthy as the one where teammates Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris competed to break Babe Ruth's record of 60 home runs in a season.  We are offering it for $15.

Prices listed are for in-person pick-up.  All are available for inspection in the Friends Room at the George Mason Regional Library when the library is open.  Please call us at 703-813-6616 so we can set a time to show them to you.
