2012 Panini National Treasures Baseball - Dodgers' Base Cards

The newest Baseball card set of the year, 2012 Panini National Treasures Baseball, has been out since Wednesday, and I have a bunch of pics from the set featuring Dodger players to share.  This set is very different from what I'm use to.  It is a super-premium set that is filled with nothing but relics and autographs.  Even the base cards have game-used pieces embedded within the cards.

I count 14 players I consider Dodger players in the base set.  (If I missed anyone please let me know)  I say this because there are no team logos anywhere to be seen.  This is a non-MLB licensed product, so it can be hard to distinguish which player belongs to which team.  For instance, Don Sutton is in the set, but on his base card he is listed as belonging to the Milwaukee Brewers.  On the flip side, Sutton also has a bunch of other insert cards that list him being with Los Angeles.

Anyway, below are the 14 Dodgers in the base set.  I've provided the card number and the edition size of each card.

#22 Jackie Robinson /99

#24 Burleigh Grimes /25

As you will notice below, there appears to be numerous variations available of each base card.  I've done my best to gather example pics of each one, but I am certain I have missed a bunch.  For the most part, there is a jersey relic of each player that is numbered to 99 copies, but even scarcer variations exist.  For Campanella, there is a jersey card numbered to 99 copies, and a jersey button card that is numbered to just 2 copies.

#30 Roy Campanella

#51 Duke Snider 

#52 Carl Furillo /99

The Walter Alston card on the left is numbered to 25 copies, and the card on the right is numbered to 99 copies.

#55 Walter Alston /25

The Don Drydale card on the left is numbered to 25 copies, and the card on the right is numbered to 99 copies.

#59 Don Drysdale

The Pee Wee Reese card on the left is numbered to only 4 copies.  It is a jersey tag card.  Also, directly below is a jersey card numbered to 99 copies, and I've include a sample of what the revere looks links.

#61 Pee Wee Reese /4

#64 Willie Keeler /99

#84 Leo Durocher /99
The Tom Lasorda card on the left is numbered to 25 copies, and the card on the right is numbered to 99 copies.

#90 Tommy Lasorda


#92 Don Sutton /99

#133 Jake Daubert /99
I have found more Matt Kemp cards than I can imagine.  From my count there are at least 4 different Matt Kemp variation base cards.  There's a logo tag that is numbered "1 of 1", a button card numbered to 5, a jersey patch card numbered to 25, and a jersey card numbered to 99.  See all four versions below.

#142 Matt Kemp /1                             #142 Matt Kemp /5

#142 Matt Kemp /25                               #142 Matt Kemp /99

#144 Pete Reiser /99
