2012 Topps Update Baseball Cards: Some Dodgers Inserts

Following up on last weeks post featuring Dodgers base cards and short prints from the recently released 2012 Topps Update set, I bring to you some of the Dodgers insert cards available to add to your collection.

Below is the Blockbusters Insert card of the trade that brought Hanley Ramirez to the Dodgers.  They should have used a photo of him doing the "I See You" hand gesture.

BB-5 Hanley Ramirez - Dodgers

There is also a Blockbusters Commemorative Hat Logo card of Hanley Ramirez only available in retail packs (like Target or Walmart).  I think this would look great autographed.

BP-5 Hanley Ramirez - Dodgers

Inserted in hobby packs is the below Blockbuster Relic Card of Hanley.  An autographed version of this (numbered to 5) is also randomly inserted into packs.

BBR-HR Hanley Ramirez - Dodgers #/50

Both Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp have their own Golden Moments cards.

GM-U27 Matt Kemp - Dodgers

Only AJ Ellis has a Golden Moments Autographed card.  See it below.

GMA-AE A.J. Ellis - Dodgers

1987 Topps Minis are back.  See the Jackie Robinson below.  I've never been a big fan of this design, but it is starting to grow on me.

How's this for a strange and unusual autographed insert card?  Topps included a insert set focused solely on the men who really shape the teams- General Managers.  There are 14 cards in the General Manager insert set, and Ned Colletti is included.  As I check eBay I find out that Ned's cards have been selling well.  He must be quite popular.

I have yet to hold one of these kind of cards, but something tells me I would love them.  Below are a couple of Gold HOF Plaque cards of Jackie and Koufax.

HOF-JR Jackie Robinson - Dodgers

HOF-SK Sandy Koufax - Dodgers

These are the Gold Ring Award Winners cards.  Like the two Jackie and Koufax cards above, these cards are super thick and include a manufactured plastic emblem.

GAR-JR Jackie Robinson - Dodgers

Below is a Gold Engravings Reprint Card of a 1955 Topps Duke Snider.
