2016 Donruss Baseball - All the Dodgers Base Cards

To start off the 2016 Baseball season Panini released their Donruss card brand earlier this week. It follows a very similar configuration to the original product that came out in the 80's.  It starts with a Diamond Kings card, then Rated Rookies and finally the base set.  Below are all the Dodger card in the aforementioned group.  Go here for a complete checklist of the set.

Yesterday was the start of something new for the Dodgers.  They've got a new skipper at the helm and a renewed optimism that will hopefully push them over the hump that has gotten in the way the past few years.  Whatever issues and problems that ailed them has surely been washed away.

As you know, it was the first official spring game of the new season, and the good guys walked away with win.  Not that it's all that important.  After all, spring is for working out the kinks, not for checking the standings.  Via Jon Weisman at Dodger Insider:
“There were a lot of good things (today),” Dave Roberts said. “We talk a lot about winning baseball games, but it’s about winning the right way. Today, we look at the pitching, the defense, the at-bats we put out there, the baserunning, that’s how we (want to) play.”
