2011 Topps Marquee- Dodger Base Cards

As I wrote about yesterday, Topps just released their newest product called Topps Marquee. This is the inaugural year for this brand and is geared towards the higher end card market. A box will probably run about $200.00 a piece, and includes only 4 packs with 5 cards within it. So, don't expect to find this at your local Target store. The draw to this set are the inserts- which are plentiful. Each pack is guaranteed to have either a relic or autograph piece.

What I like is that the Dodgers fill up 8 spots in a base set that consist of only 100 cards. I call that dominating the set. Furthermore, the Keshaw and Kemp cards feature them in their vintage baby blue uniforms that were used this season. As always, there are numerous parallels to the base set. Numerous examples of them are below.

Pee Wee Reese, #24

Jackie Robinson, #45

Matt Kemp, #52

Andre Ethier, #56

Sandy Koufax, #64

Clayton Kershaw, #67

Duke Snider, #75
Roy Campanella, #78
