2011 Topps: Dodger Base Cards

Here are the Dodger base cards within the 2011 Topps Series 1 set. As always various parallel cards exist- from black borders to Diamond. Also of special note are the legends short printed base cards that has a legend share a card number with a current ballplayer. Both Jackie and Campanella are a part of this short printed set.

Ted Lilly, #36

Take note of this particular card below. It is a limited variation that can be hard to spot if not paying attention. On the top left corner is the old-school Topps logo.

Vicente Padilla, #37

Hong-Chih Kuo, #46

Russell Martin, #114
Casey Blake, #158

Andre Ethier, #240
Clayton Kershaw, #275
James Loney, #305

Of all the different parallel cards found in this card set I never imagined myself liking this one. Below is the Diamond variation of Kershaw. Something tells me a complete set of these in pocket-pages would just look glorious.
Here are the Legend short print cards of Dodgers below. The Jackie shares a card number with Desmond Jennings and the Campy shares the card number with former Dodger catching prospect Carlos Santana. It appears the player they share a number with compares favorable with one another. For instance, Ty Cobb shares a card number with Ichiro, Schmidt with ARod, Walter Johnson with Roy Halladay, etc.

Jackie Robinson, #80

Roy Campanella, #209
