2013 Topps Baseball Cards - Dodgers Base Insert Cards

After what has felt like forever, I finally received my 2013 Topps Dodgers Baseball cards.  They arrived in the mail the other day, and I finally had a chance to scan them.  Check out my past blog post on this set here.

Today, I start with the base insert cards.  Tomorrow, I'll have pics of both the front and reverse of each Dodger card.  As always, click any pic to embiggen.

These are the 1972 Topps Mini Cards, and 4 Dodgers are in the 50 card set.

TM-10 Adrian Gonzalez

The best part about Baseball cards is the writing on the back.  In the below Ethier card we find out that he has stroked 30 doubles in 6 consecutive season, and if he does it again this year he'll break a club record.

TM-22 Andre Ethier

Remember, Clayton's nickname is "The Claw," or so says on the reverse.  It says, "'The Claw' features mid-90s velocity and a hammer of a curveball."  

TM-23 Clayton Kershaw

TM-49 Matt Kemp

Below are the Chasing History Insert Cards.  As you can see, each player achieved some notable milestone.

CH-22 Matt Kemp

CH-46 Hanley Ramirez

CH-49 Jackie Robinson

CH-50 Sandy Koufax

The last card is a Greats Insert card of Sandy Koufax.  He is the lone Dodger representative in this 30 card set.  This card is approx. 3x thicker than a normal 2013 Topps card, and has the look of a premium card like the Topps Museum or Marquee sets.

TG-24 Sandy Koufax
