2010 Topps Tribute: Dodger Base Cards

Topps newest Baseball card set has just gone live. Topps Tribute is a higher end card set filled with autographs and relic/ game-used cards. Boxes run for about $230 to $250 each for only 6 packs, and each pack is guaranteed one hit. So you should walk away with 3 auto's and 3 relic cards in each box. The base set only has 100 cards, but comes with several parallel cards in shades of blue, black, gold, B&W, red and gold. Below are all of the Dodger cards in the base set. As you can tell, this set leans heavily towards retired stars and Hall of Famers with only a handful of current roster players. In this case, only Manny has a base card for the Dodgers. See a full checklist here.
