2013 Topps Triple Threads Baseball - The Dodgers Base Cards

This past Friday Topps released their very popular Triple Threads set.  It includes numerous autographed and relic Dodger cards that I will show over the next few days.  For today, I share the Dodger base cards within the set.  See them below.

#16 Clayton Kershaw                         #36 Hanley Ramirez

#42 Jackie Robinson                            #49 Adrian Gonzalez

#69 Yasiel Puig                                      #85 Zack Greinke

#86 Sandy Koufax                                    #90 Matt Kemp

#92 Duke Snider

The Hyun-Jin Ryu "Future Phenoms Autograph Relic" card is numbered #117; which suggest it's a part of the base set.  Unfortunately, the Ryu card is not inserted into packs.  Instead, there is a redemption card.  Below is an example of that card.

#117 Hyun-Jin Ryu

In honor of the World Series here's a great pic of the Fenway Park crowd at the 1912 World Series.  Pic via Michael Beschloss on twitter.

And what is baseball? A decidedly 19th century construct shaped by all manner of rules and conventions. A construct In which, unlike its 19th century contemporaries such as boxing, weightlifting or horse racing, physical prowess is nowhere as nearly close to everything. Rather, it’s about physical prowess being channeled alongside a set of ground rules and formalities that require the mind and discipline to work hand-in-hand with the body and its fast-twitch muscles. It’s a pursuit in which force being applied via instinct rather than calculation is almost always punished rather than rewarded.
