Elected to the Hall of Fame in 1984, Dodgers team leader and shortstop Pee Wee Reese was the subject of an intense fan campaign designed to raise awareness and hopefully help get him elected by the Hall of Fame Veterans Committee.  Presented here is an collection of material related to the campaign, along with its subsequent success.  Collection includes the following:  1) "Pee Wee" Belongs in the Hall! T-Shirt: powder blue "Screen Stars" brand shirt, bearing the aforementioned slogan and an image of Reese's 1956 Topps card.  Unworn, NM condition.  2) Bumper Stickers (2):  Pair of "Pee Wee Belongs in the Hall" Bumper stickers, unused but folded in half, still presents EX/MT.  3) Ed Kallay Telegram: congratulatory telegram from television broadcaster Ed Kallay, requesting the first interview on WAVE TV.  4) Signed Photo Print: 10" x 8" black and white print picturing Reese, signed in the lower right corner in blue Sharpie.  5) 1955 "Dodgers Line Drives": Fan publication, noting Reese's July 22 "Pee Wee Reese Day" festivities, which we believe is the date of the original photo described above.  6) 1984 Hall of Fame Induction Program: Official program from Reese's induction, which also included Luis Aparicio, Don Drysdale, Harmon Killebrew and Rick Ferrell.  LOA from James Spence Authentication on the signature.  Six items total.
