Dodgers Blog Kiosk: 8/17/2012

Take a look at a preview pic from Topps from their upcoming 2012 Topps Chrome Baseball set.  Above is a dual autographed insert card of Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp.  Pic via twitter @Topps.
  • Baseball Prospectus Day at Dodger Stadium is happening on September 15th.  Go here for information.  There will be a pregame discussion with numerous guest appearances and food is included.
  • Don Newcombe speaks a bit about the upcoming Civil Rights Game in Atlanta, via Spencer Fordin at MLB.com.
"Baseball started it, and it all started with Branch Rickey," said Newcombe. "He was the only one with the backbone to do it. A few years earlier, the Commissioner [Kenesaw Mountain Landis] was saying publicly that we couldn't play, but there were countless African-American citizens who fought in the war and then came back and couldn't find a job. What were we if we weren't full-blooded Americans? It had to change." 
  • Card Buzz was in Rancho Cucamonga and shares a Yasiel Puig auto.  Puig's autograph needs some work.
  • Reddit user BradyIsAnElitePunter shares a photo he/she colorized, and it's a beaut! If you don't know, it's a pic of the infamous bat incident- when Marichal tried to get at the Dodgers catcher, Johnny Roseboro with his bat for attempting to him him on his throw back to Sandy Koufax.
  • Topps just unveiled their Baseball card design for 2013.  So, what do you think?  Better yet, what do you think of the pink monstrosity on the right?  I guess the Jose Reyes is a pink bordered parallel card.
