Here is a 2005 Diamond King autographed card, numbered to 100.
Here are the two Dodgers in "The Great Ones" insert set.
How weird is it that they use a Adrian Beltre photo in a Dodger uniform? I guess since this is a "Home Run Heroes" insert card, and the last time he was a major home run threat was when he wore "Blue" might explain it.
The Los Angeles Times reported two days ago that the Dodgers don’t have enough cash to make payroll at the end of May. Major League Baseball spokesman Pat Courtney declined to comment on whether MLB would step in and provide the money.
Well, there ya go. McCourt has so screwed up this thing so much that we could potentially lose Kemp, Ethier, Kershaw, Billingsley, and the like for nothing. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't have the US Senate able and ready to bail out his high leverage, high spending ways. Fortunately for us, we have MLB to cover our backs.
I have to add that I really like the look of these cards. The drawings are great, and some of the inserts aren't too bad either. The backs are lacking in substance- I wish they added some stats (or maybe a cartoon) to fill out the reverse. As you can see there is only a short biography. As always, click on any of the pics to enlarge.
