2012 Panini Triple Play- Dodgers Cards

Panini just released their newest Baseball card set, and it's strictly for the kids.  It is called Triple Play, and it emulates an old Donruss set from the early 90's of the same name that was also geared to children.  Unlike the old Donruss set, this set features players as cartoon drawings instead of using actual photographs.  Packs are super cheap at $1.00 a piece, and you should be able to find them at local retail store near you.

As for the Dodger players in it, there five to chase after (three of which are of Matt Kemp).  See them below.  There is also a sticker card of Clayton Kershaw that looks very much like the card below.

#40 Clayton Kershaw

 #41 James Loney

#42 Matt Kemp
#248 Matt Kemp - Focus subset

#289 Matt Kemp- When I Was a Kid subset

I wish I had a photo of the reverse of this card.  I would love to know what childhood story Kemp passed along.

  1. Awesome stuff! I really want to get into this set!

    1. Yeah, it looks like a fun set. Better yet, it's cheap. I didn't mention it about, but there are also 9 card subsets of a handful of players that are like a puzzle. If you get them all you make a big picture. Too bad no dodger is a part of that.
