Officially released today is Topps 2016 Series 2 flagship Baseball card set.  I hope to have pics of all the Dodgers cards soon.  So stay tuned.  See a complete checklist here.  In the meantime, check out the three "First Pitch" cards from Dodger Stadium. 

Since 2015 Topps has honored numerous illustrious ballpark guest with their own Topps Baseball card.  Past stars include Jessica Alba, Kelsey Grammer and Jeff Bridges.  This time we have a card for a boxer, a musician and an actor from one of the greatest movie franchises of all time.  Check them out below.  I have also included a video of their pitches.

On Movie Night the Dodgers showed the film "Back to the Future."  Naturally, one of its stars came out to throw the ceremonial first pitch.  Featured above is Leah Thompson. As you can see in the video below, she came onto the field in a souped-up DeLorean.
