2013 Panini USA Baseball Champions Set - The Dodgers' Players

Last week, Panini released a new Baseball card set.  It is focused on Team USA and includes many old faces familiar to Dodger fans.  Since none of the players are formerly shown connected to any particular team, I decided to pick and choose a handful of former Dodgers of note.  I also decided to include USC's great Baseball coach Rod Dedeaux.  He played in 2 games for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1935, and continued to maintain close ties to the team while compiling arguably the greatest resume for a college coach, ever.

Directly below are the former and current Dodgers' in the base set.

#2 Rod Dedeaux                               #11 Mark McGwire


#22 Shawn Green                              #23 Nomar Garciaparra

#28 Tommy Lasorda                                 #35 Reggie Smith

#55 Zach Lee                                        #89 Zach Lee

#93 Corey Seager

Here are the Dodgers' insert cards.
