2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball - All the Dodgers Base Cards

For fans like myself today is the official start of the 2017 Baseball season.  I say this because fans and Baseball card collectors alike can now go to their favorite store to get packs of Topps flagship set.  Officially released today is the 2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball set.  Go here for a complete checklist.

For this first series thirteen Dodger players are represented; including superstars Corey Seager and Clayton Kershaw.  The set also includes several players in Dodger uniforms who have since moved on to other teams -- Howie Kendrick, Carlos Ruiz, Josh Reddick and Jose De Leon.  Also, Chase Utley is available in Dodger Blue (he has yet to decide where he'll be playing this season).  Check them all out below.  I've included pics of both the front and reverse (with exception of the Chris Hatcher card).

As I'm sure you've noticed, for the first time since 1971 Topps does not include full career statistics for each player on the reverse.  But is does include social media information for each player (apparently, that's more important).

Base Cards

#5 Corey Seager

#50 Clayton Kershaw

#76 Andre Ethier

#107 Howie Kendrick

#117 Adrian Gonzalez

#134 Chase Utley

#142 Carlos Ruiz

#213 Alex Wood

#251 Justin Turner

#269 Jose De Leon

#325 Chris Hatcher

#329 Josh Reddick

#337 Scott Van Slyke

Only five Dodger cards are available as a part of the 100-card "Base Clear Parallel" set.  As you might have guessed, this is a plastic-like acetate card.  They are numbered to only ten copies each.
