2014 Panini Immaculate Baseball - The Dodger Base Cards

On Wednesday Panini released their newest Baseball card product and it's an high-end issue.  It is called the 2014 Immaculate Collection, and a single box of cards will cost over $200.00.  For that price you get one pack of six cards - five of which are guaranteed to be either an autograph or relic card.  Go here to see a complete checklist of the set.

There are seven Dodgers in the 100-card base set.  Check them all out below.

A normal base card is serial numbered to only #/99 copies, and like always there are numerous parallels available.  The parallels include a Blue #/10, Holo Gold #/5, Platinum 1/1.

Overall, I think it's a great design, but it's missing something... Oh, yeah... there are no team logos, so they look super-goofy.  As you may know, Panini does not have a MLB license (only a MLBPA license), so there are no mentions of the Dodgers or their insignia anywhere.  Instead, it says only "Los Angeles Baseball Club."  Other than that it's a sharp looking set.

Of note, I just noticed that the uniform number on the players front is in Blue instead of the normal red.  I wonder if the red uniform number is considered a unique brand of the Dodgers.  So unique that a non-license holder like Panini cannot use it.  Hmm...

#5 Clayton Kershaw                                  #24 Matt Kemp

#33 Yasiel Puig                                      #43 Adrian Gonzalez

#68 Hyun-Jin Ryu                                  #74 Zack Greinke

#84 Hanley Ramirez
