The SoSG Annals of Incompleteness: Dodgers Pocket Schedules

Inspired by last week's dip into the SoSG annals, we are pleased to present our latest retrospective: Dodgers pocket schedules! As always, feel free to send us scans that will fill in missing years (I'm looking at you, Natalie!).

UPDATE:

Thanks to Natalie for providing scans for 2002 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008! Now with commentary!

UPDATE:

Thanks to Roberto of Vin Scully Is My Homeboy for two of the 2009 pocket schedules!


"Remember 1992? That was a good time, completely unimaginable that it would be 20+ years before we were even close to being in another World Series. Losing 99 games didn't hurt too bad."
—Cigarcow


1992 pocket schedule, alternate cover. Highly collectible.


"Mike Piazza hit 35 home runs in 1993. Let's show him fielding on the cover of the 1994 pocket schedule!"
—some genius Dodger executive


Nothing's sexier than potential.


"The Piazza on the '97 schedule was definitely juicing."
—SoSG EK
"That Piazza on the '97 schedule was definitely hetero."
—SoSG Sax


Hideo Nomo was really just paving the way for Kaz Ishii.


Where have you gone, Shawn Green?
Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you
Woo woo woo
What's that you say, Mr. Robinson?
Slugging Shawn has left and gone away
Hey hey hey


Good Times, Part I!


Good Times, Part II!


Good Times, Part III!


Who knew Jeff Kent would actually be a breath of fresh air?


Since removing player names from the back of Dodger jerseys worked so well, Frank McCourt decided to remove the numbers from the front.


This is it: The Official 2007 Dodgers Preliminary Pocket Schedule. Highly collectible.


"You can almost feel the sweat looking at Derek Lowe."
—SoSG Sax


Sandy Koufax is relegated to his proper place: Derek Lowe's armpit.

Thus endeth our retrospective. Who do you think will grace the cover of the Dodgers' 2009 pocket schedule? Hmmm, I wonder. Question answered!

SoSG: Where we make the readers work. Go Natalie!

Cigarcow: Wasn't the entire 90's like that?

Steve Sax said...

Orel: Nice commentary! Well done

Alex Cora said...

I think Frank will put his picture on the pocket schedule.

Natalie said...

Is it just me or does Kevin Brown look Latino in 2002? That is him, right? Oh, and not to split hairs, but I provided 2003 not 2002. :) :)

Orel said...

Oh, consider that hair split. (Correction made.) And that's not Kevin Brown, it's, uh, K. MarrĂ³n.

Roberto said...

I have many pocket schedules. Yeah I know, I'm a nerd. What year are you looking for ? Or just the one's that are not shown here ?

BTW, you can check out the 2009 schedules over at my blog.

Thanks, Roberto the Autograph King! I've added the 2009 schedules; any holes you want to fill would be great.
