Since I've made it my mission to share pics of all of the new Dodger cards created for fans, I figured it was high time that I focus on a handful insert cards packaged exclusively into Topps factory complete sets.
This season, there are several different exclusive Factory Set Inserts available, but only one of them features a Dodger. A Chrome Refractor Sandy Koufax Reprint card have been randomly inserted into marked sets (as you can see in the example above). There are three different Koufax reprints available. Check them out below. They reprinted the 1956 Topps, 1957 Topps and 1958 Topps cards. (BTW, the recently released 2014 Topps Chrome set includes a reprint of the 1955 Topps Sandy Koufax rookie card)
Just for reference purposes, I figured I'd provide a checklist of the other factory set inserts that are available. Check that out below.
In addition to the Sandy Koufax reprints, Topps also made Ted Williams Chrome Refractor reprint cards. That set includes reprints of the 1951 Bowman, 1954 Bowman & 1954 Topps cards.
There are also two different 5-card variation sets inserted into factory sets. There is the All-Star Edition set and the Rookie Photo Variation set. Below is a checklist for both.
All-Star Edition: #AS-1 Andrew McClutchen, #AS-2 Derek Jeter, #AS-3 Miguel Cabrera, #AS-4 Joe Mauer & #AS-5 Mike Trout
Rookie Photo Variations: #36 Billy Hamilton, #133 Xander Bogaerts, #195 Nick Castellanos, #496 Jose Abreu & #661 Masahiro Tanaka
