Collection: 2002 Keebler Dodgers Set
Last week, when I posted up a late 80's Dodgers Police Set a commentator wondered about the Mother's Cookies sets from the same period. It was then that I realized that I don't actually have a complete Dodgers Mother's Cookie set from that era. I do, on the other hand, have a complete 2002 Keebler Dodgers set in my collection.
They were distributed at a game in 2002 with each child under 14 receiving a packet of 21 different cards plus 7 duplicates to trade in an effort to complete the set. I always hated this idea. Who has the time to find other kids to trade with when a game is going on? Undoubtedly, most kids went home without a complete set in hand.
Anyway, check out scans of both the front and reverse of all 28 cards in the set.
On a side note, there is something else I dislike about this set. When Jack Clark was named the Dodgers batting coach a little bit of me died. I still hate him for his home run off us as a Cardinal, and couldn't get over that memory during his stay in LA. The above coach's card makes me feel really sad.
