2016 Elite Extra Edition Baseball - All the Dodgers Cards

Here is a look at all the Dodger cards found in packs of Panini's 2016 Elite Extra Edition Baseball card set.  Go here for a complete checklist. 

This set was released last week and focuses solely on top prospects from throughout the minor leagues, college and the Team USA Baseball team.  So, it's likely there are a few more Dodger players in this set who are still playing prep ball.  In the meantime, we have the Dodgers 2016 first round pick (Gavin Lux) and several other high-flying prospects to chase after. 

#20 Gavin Lux                                        #32 Will Smith

Kenta Maeda is incognito.  

Over the weekend we were greeted with a fun video from Japanese television featuring Dodgers pitcher Kenta Maeda goofing on a bunch of little league aged ballplayers.  He dressed up as an old man and played some ball.  Watch the entire segment at the very bottom.  (Hat Tip: Joseph Kim on twitter)
