2014 Topps Tier One Baseball - The Dodger Bat Knob and Relic Cards

Last week Topps released their newest set called Tier One.  As the name suggest, it is a high-value set filled with autographs and relic cards.  There is no base set. 

There is an All-Star Relic card featuring Clayton Kershaw (#ASR-CKE) in the set, and it is a "1 of 1" card.  Unfortunately, it has yet to be unearthed.

There are a whole bunch of Dodger Tier One Bat Knobs cards in this set - both autographed and non-autographed knob cards.  As you know, these are always "1 of 1" cards, and are very scarce.  They regularly sell for hundreds of dollars a piece.  Numerous Dodger players have more than one bat knob cards available in the set.  Below is a complete checklist of Dodger bat knob cards that have been made.  Below that are photos of Dodger Bat Knob cards that have surfaced, so far.

Below are Tier One Relic cards.  Four Dodgers are available: Adrian Gonzalez, Clayton Kershaw, Hanley Ramirez and Hyun-Jin Ryu.  As you'll notice, there are three different relics available for each player - single, double and triple relic pieces.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to track down a  triple relic card for Adrian Gonzalez and Clayton Kershaw
