2013 Panini Black Friday Dodgers Cards - Ryu & Puig

This Thanksgiving Black Friday shopping weekend was more than just an event at your local supercenter, mall or electronics store.  It's was also a great weekend to visit your favorite sports card hobby shop.

For Black Friday this year, Panini made special trading cards that were giving out at participating hobby stores.  It included cards from all 4 sports, and some great relic/autographed gimmick cards; including player-worn Santa hats.  See some pics of some inserts here.

There are 2 Dodgers found in packs.  Both Hyun-Jin Ryu and Yasiel Puig are in the base set; while Puig has a couple of insert cards available.  Unfortunately, I do not believe there are any Dodger relic cards - at least I haven't seen any.  See them all below; including the front and reverse of each card.

  • Tom Hoffarth at the LA Daily News writes, "Vin Scully turns 86 and gives thanks for a dream come true".  It includes a short interview with Scully.  BTW, he'll be the Tournament of Roses Parade's Grand Marshall.
Q: So what are the official duties, other than to be in Pasadena in the middle of the night, find the right car and make sure you have a cup of warm chocolate?
A: Really, the only job qualifications are that you have to be alive and be able to wave. So far, so good.
