2017 Topps Stadium Club - The Dodgers Base Cards

The always fun Topps Stadium Club set was released to collectors on Wednesday, and it doesn't disappoint. There are some fantastic photos in the set; including several I've never seen on cardboard. Go here to check out a complete checklist.

Eleven Dodgers are in the 300 card base set, and surprisingly there are no Dodger base variations available to speak of. (Update: One SSP base Dodger variation exist and you can see it here) There are chrome versions of the base cards available, but they are basically just parallels -- carbon copies of the base, but super shiny. A complete Dodger checklist of the Chrome cards is at the very bottom.

My favorite Dodger cards in the set are that of Corey Seager and Jackie Robinson. The photograph on the Seager card frames the entire batters box as he takes a big swing. Then, as if out of nowhere, an arm stretches out in an attempt to catch the pitched ball. I love the Jackie Robinson card mainly because I don't recall ever seeing that photo. Stay tuned for Dodgers inserts next week.

Blog Kiosk: 7/14/2017 - Dodgers Links - Vin Scully Narrated "Lincoln Portrait" Last Night

It is apparently Vin Scully Week in Las Angeles. After accepting the ICON Award at the ESPYs the other day, he ventured up to the Hollywood Bowl last night to narrate “Lincoln Portrait” by Aaron Copland, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. He will reprise the performance this coming Tuesday, July 18th. Go here to watch Vin's narration from last night.
