Ethier Puck Drop

I had been looking for this photo all day yesterday. Below is a pic from Ethier's visit to the Staples center for the ceremonial puck drop. A bunch of photos showed up today on the Dodger Website featuring this event and other events during the Dodger caravan. Go here to check them out.

Huggins and Scott: Modern Dodger Cards

Huggins and Scott's March auction is up for viewing and it includes some nice modern day Dodger cards. Check them out below.

Regardless of your politics, you have to admit that the below card is pretty sweet. After all, the 2009 Topps American Heritage booklet card featuring autographs of Barack Obama and Jackie Robinson is historically appropriate. Both men broke barriers.

Here is a lot of 6 different 2008 Topps Sterling booklet cards featuring some old-time Dodgers. Click on the photo for a larger view. Duke Snider is featured on 3 of the booklets; including a couple with autos. Roy Campanella and Jackie Robinson have their own booklets as well. Finally, both Campy and Jackie share a booklet.
