The Ronald Reagan Library currently has a HUGE collection of Dodgers memorabilia on display. Trust me, The Baseball Exhibition is well worth it.  

Any baseball fan will appreciate the vast array of items on display.  To be sure, it's New York heavy with plenty of pieces from the Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers.  Sprinkled throughout are items from Hank Aaron, a Honus Wagner baseball card (and countless other old, old cards), Babe Ruth game worn equipment, displays on the Negro Leagues, a historical display of catcher's gear, a series on baseball construction, stadium models, and so much more.

But it's the Dodgers relics that occupy most of the real estate here.  Many pieces gave me a lump in my throat.  Game worn baseball gloves by Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, Jim Gilliam, Gill Hodges, and Don Newcombe.  Game worn jerseys by Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale, Fernando Valenzuela, Orel Hershiser, and others.  The Johnny Podres display took my breath away.  Tophies, bats, uniforms through the ages, newspaper clippings, stadium relics, and on and on. 

Trust me, it's worth it.

The display is available through September 14th. Admission is $16 for adults, children are $6-$9 depending on age, but you can take $3 off with this promotional code: VC Library.  Pack a lunch and plan on an hour or two for the Ronald Reagan portion of the museum (including a walk-through of Air Force One!).  The Baseball Exhibition took my family a little less than two hours to see everything.  Of course, YMMV.
