- Evan Bladh at Opinion of Kingman's Performance writes a great piece about Brooklyn Dodger Ralph Branca (Part 1).
- Left Field Pavilion does it again. This time he creates some fantasy Dodgers cards using vintage Topps Baseball card designs.
- Chris Olds at Beckett tells us that there are a bunch of 2013 Heritage reverse printing errors in the set, as well. I'll let you know what Dodgers (if any) have those kind of variations.
- JP Hoornstra at Inside the Dodgers speaks with Alfredo Amezaga of Team Mexico about the impact Adrian Gonzalez has on the team.
“It’s everything,” he said, “because when I talk to him, you can see his focus every time. If you ask him one thing, he’s going to answer that thing. He’s focused on that question.

- Sports Card Info tells about some of the Monty Sheldon relic/art cards he created for Topps upcoming Gypsy Queen set.
- RIP, Tom Connor. He was 77 when he passed away yesterday. In his honor please listen and sing along to his song - "The Hockey Song". The video has the added benefit of including some vintage game footage; including the Kings, in their original Forum Gold jersey's, participating in a bench clearing brawl against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Also, If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger... shares a great vintage photo of the Canadian country singer here.
