In my opinion, the base card design is horrible. On the other hand, the insert cards that borrow designs from several relatively unknown vintage card sets are phenomenal. I especially love the Darby Chocolate cards I show at the very bottom.

The Frank Robinson card is the only known Dodger variation card in the set. As you can see, the only reason he is regarded as a Dodger in the card below is the city notation of "Los Angeles" underneath his photo. In the normal base card "Baltimore" is indicated underneath Robinson's photo.

All the remaining cards below are box-toppers. Each box of cards comes with a large sized pack that contains either a 5x7 super-sized card, or a 3-card strip of Darby Chocolate themed cards. Below are the Dodger players included.
BTW, There is a 5x7 memorabilia card (#9) of Duke Snider available, but I have yet to see a photo of it. Directly below is the non-memorabilia card of Snider that is available.

I just love the design of these Darby Chocolate themed cards. The vintage versions are super rare, and can sell for thousands in VG condition card. Below, I highlight two Dodger players from the set. Zack Wheat, of course, is known as a Dodger Hall of Famer; whereas, Rube Marquard is known more for his years as a NY Giants Hall of Famer pitcher. Still, Marquard pitched 6 years in Brooklyn; recording 56 wins and helping the club to 2 National League Pennants.
