2017 Topps Series 2 - All the Dodgers Base Cards

Here is a look at all of the Dodger base cards found in packs of 2017 Topps Series 2. Go here for a complete checklist. But before I show you those cards I thought I would mention that Clayton Kershaw happens to be this products spokesman. His steely-eyed stare is plastered on every single box. Featured above is a pic of an hobby box.

Now here are the Dodgers base cards.

This Just Might be the Best Dodgers' Baseball Card of the Year

When I first saw this card a sudden warm feeling came over me. I was immediately transported back in time to that ballgame in late September - when the sun was shinning and the Dodgers had a sizable lead going into the last home game of the season.

With Kiké's help, along with a little bit of luck, the Dodgers win their sixth straight.

The game was all tied up at two in the eight inning when Hernandez came up to the plate and put the Dodgers on top. Batting against reliever Andrew Miller, who hadn't given up a homer all season along til the Dodgers came to town, he hit a lazy flyball to right field that sailed all the way into the stands. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“It was kind of an emergency swing,” Kiké Hernández said afterward to SportsNet LA’s Alanna Rizzo. “Thank God we’re in Cleveland and not LA. That might’ve been an out at home.”
Thereafter, the Dodgers trounced. They quickly loaded the bases, scored three more runs and left the game in the capable hands of Kenley Jansen for the victory. He recorded his 202nd save of his career.
