2018 Panini Diamond Kings - All the Dodgers Relic and Autographed Cards

There are a ton of different Dodger relic and autographed cards available in Diamond Kings to chase after. Below are pics of most of them.

You can get autographed cards of current mainstays like Chris Taylor and Justin Turner, cards of fast rising youngsters like Seager and Bellinger, prospects like Buehler or Verdugo, or Dodgers from the past like Darryl Strawberry or Orel Hershiser. Best yet, because this brand is not as popular as it's licensed competitor Topps you can get these jewels at a relative discount. In fact, in my opinion these are the cards that make this set worth checking out.

DK Signatures

  • #34 Justin Turner -- Not Yet Seen
#30 Chris Taylor                #42 Corey Seager

Blog Kiosk: 4/13/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

Last night Sharon Robinson, daughter of Jackie, accepted the inaugural Reagan Institute Summit on Education (RISE) award on behalf of The Jackie Robinson Foundation. RISE is dedicated to elevating the national conversation on education by creating space for leaders from diverse industries and political backgrounds to have purposeful discussion of the issues.

  • This Day in Dodgers History: In 1939 Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig, during a spring training game against the Dodgers in Norfolk, Virginia, hit two homers that would prove to be the last home runs he would ever hit. In 1954 Walter Alston made his major league debut as the Dodgers manager. In 2009 second baseman Orlando Hudson hit for the "Cycle" against the Giants during the Dodgers home opener. He is the first Dodger to accomplish the feat at Dodger Stadium, and the first Dodger to do it in a nine-inning game since Gil Hodges in 1949. In 2012 Dodger starter Aaron Harang struck out nine consecutive Padre batters -- breaking the Dodgers franchise record of eight held by Johnny Podres. The Major League mark is at ten, and is held by Mets pitcher Tom Seaver in 1970.
