|Obak Mouthpiece Cigarettes Base Ball Series, 1910|
Dick Dobbins Collection on the Pacific Coast League, California Historical Society
CHS is home to the amazing Dick Dobbins Collection of memorabilia from the Pacific Coast League. The PCL - sometimes called the Third Major League - is not connected to the Majors, but has sent some mighty fine players there, including Joe Di Maggio, Ted Williams, and Tony Lazzeri. The collection is primarily made up of material from the Oakland Oaks, San Francisco Seals, and Los Angeles Angels.
So, in the words of one of our local favorites, San Francisco Giants broadcaster, Mike Krukow, “Grab some pine, Meat!” and let’s play ball!
