Even if you’re an arch-rival, you can’t argue. L.A. is the city of champions in 2020. Earlier in the month, the Lakers broke through for the first time in ten years and now, after 32 years, the city’s baseball team has another title. Not surprisingly, it’s expected there will be plenty of Dodgers World Series championship memorabilia and merchandise sold between now and spring training.
Success isn’t anything new for the Dodgers, who have won three of the last four National League pennants. The title was the team’s seventh overall and sixth in L.A., but the 2020 road wasn’t easy. The shortened playoff format for the MLB postseason saw the 2020 Dodgers polish off the Brewers and Padres with a sweep of both teams in the opening rounds. However, it was the rally from a 2-0 deficit to win the NLCS that really sent them on their way.

While only a small crowd was able to celebrate in person at Globe Life Field in Texas, there will be plenty of other ways for fans to commemorate the World Series title with Dodgers championship gear. We’re guessing Dodgers Christmas and holiday gifts will be a big deal this year.
Here are a few possibilities…
Fanatics had already lined up several players to autograph deals and is well prepared to meet the demand on its website and its sister site, SportsMemorabilia.com, which caters to collectors. The options for Dodgers World championship gear are many.
If you like high-end. limited edition autographed pieces, there’s are framed and unframed World Series logo jerseys with multiple signatures and a shadow box display with a team-signed bat limited to 220 copies.
In fact, we’d say the shadowboxes that have been created are some of the coolest items including signed baseballs that are the centerpiece, with championship images at the top.
World Series champions signed bats are being marketed with individual players at $300-$400.
Among the less expensive autographed Dodgers mearchandise are photos. You can go basic and share a nice autographed photo of Julio Urias and Austin Barnes racing toward each other as they celebrate the final out.
If you like big moments, there’s a signed Cody Bellinger photo, memorably tossing his bat after belting his big home run in Game 7 of the NLCS and another one of his home run saving catch in Game 2 of the NLDS.
There’s a Mookie Betts signed photo that captures him leaping to rob Freddie Freeman of a home run, keeping the Dodgers in that NLCS game they’d eventually win.
Photos are always easy to store or display and there is no shortage of variety available when it comes to the 2020 Dodgers.
Autographed Dodgers replica jerseys that are already framed and ready for hanging are among the big sellers and you can find them for most of the team’s top stars. Seager, Betts and Bellinger are among those that are available and prices will vary a bit by player.
Single-signed baseballs are among the most popular items in the collecting world and autographed official 2020 World Series baseballs should be big sellers. You can buy them with a case or use your own. Some are available with the “2020 World Series Champs” inscription.
2020 Dodgers Baseball Cards
2020 Dodger baseball cards abound. Topps Now captured all of the big moments from the regular season and playoffs. They produced a 15-card set commemorating the title, including a version that includes one autograph card. The cards are sold on Topps’ website in print-on-demand format and only available for 24 hours, but eBay re-sellers who buy in bulk have you covered.
Jewelry designer Ben Baller, who created cards for Topps’ Project 2020 initiative this year also helped produce a special World Series championship boxed baseball card set that looks like a winner with both current players and former legends featured on an LA-vibe design.
Originally available on Topps’ website, they sold out but are now being offered on eBay.
Dodgers team sets from the many sets produced by Topps during the season that are pieced together by bulk buyers are among the least expensive items by which to remember the 2020 season.
You can always find Dodgers certified autograph cards that were pulled from packs at a higher cost. Rookie cards of Betts, Bellinger, Seager and Kershaw are always in demand, too.
You like rare stuff? Tickets to the 2020 World Series were all digital.
Or were they?
It seems a VERY small number of hard copy tickets were printed and those that wind up on the market are going to be scarce and expensive. It’s kind of an interesting story.
World Series Programs
Even though fewer than 12,000 fans were allowed into the ballpark for any game, MLB still produced an official World Series program. These days most sales come online anyway. You can grab one for $15 and keep as is or add some autographs later.
Official 2020 World Series Baseball
Carrying the same design as the one you see on the field, the 2020 World Series baseball from Rawlings is another cheap souvenir. Again, adding autographs at a later time is always a thought.
Dodgers Championship Bobbleheads
You can’t talk Dodgers championship merchandise without the ever popular bobblehead. FOCO does a pretty remarkable job with championship bobbleheads and they’ve got them for the Dodgers, too, with team sets and individual players.
If you’re not into autographs or find yourself on a more modest budget, there are several different framed collages that feature photos along with World Series game scores and other info that are $30-$100.
There’s a very nice 24″ x 28″ collage featuring World Series images and action photos that’s framed and priced at $150.
Commemorative Numbered Bats
There’s a full-size World Series maple bat that comes laser engraved with the 2020 World Series logo, the Dodgers World Series Champions logo, and the facsimile signatures of the players. They’re serial-numbered to 2020 and available for $149.99.
Dodgers World Series DVD/Blu-Ray and Book
Vin Scully is back! The Dodgers’ legendary broadcaster has narrated the official World Series video which is available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
There’s also a book covering the magical season entitled “All For One” that you can own for $39.99. Clayton Kershaw, Orel Hershiser and Dave Roberts all contributed.
Game-Used World Series Dirt
Need a stocking stuffer or just want an inexpensive, unique piece with a little bit of the ballpark in it? You can buy a pen that has a little bit of game-used dirt from Globe Life Field for around $20.
You can also go bigger and get a World Series champs collage that also includes a little capsule of the field where the Dodgers brought home the title.
Dodgers Championship Apparel
Dodgers championship hats, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets and just about everything else you can wear can be found on the Fanatics website, most of which will be delivered in short order. And, of course, what’s more appropriate in 2020 than a Dodgers World Series championship face mask?
