Blog Kiosk: 10/15/2019 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends


I feel ya Jackie.

I put myself on a brief hiatus following the Dodgers recent plunge in the playoffs. I just needed some time to sulk. But now I'm back and I thought the above 1952 AP wirephoto that recently sold at RMY Auctions (link) would be appropriate to show here. As you can see, Jackie Robinson doesn't look well after losing another World Series to the Yankees. Per the descriptor:
The big 4 of the 42 of Jackie Robinson's uniform seems post-climactic as the Dodger second baseman sits dejectedly in Ebbets Field dressing room today after the Brooklyn team lost final game of the 1952 World Series to the New York Yankees. Winning four games to three the World Champions once again kept the Dodgers from their first World Championship.

Topps Living Set - #248 - Dodger Rookie Catcher Will Smith


I am going to look at his selection for this weeks Topps Living Set as a good omen. After all, tonight is the deciding Game 5 game between the Dodgers and Nationals in the NLDS, and Will Smith is slated to start his fourth game of the series today. As you know, he's struggled so far this Postseason (going 1-for-9 with four strikeouts), so a breakout tonight would be great. Go here to check it out and order. You can see a complete checklist of the set here. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Will Smith has given perennial-contender Los Angeles Dodgers an added dimension to their already stacked starting lineup. The rookie catcher slugged 15 home runs in his first taste of the Majors, giving the Dodgers a dangerous option from one of the most important positions on the field.
Below is a current Dodgers checklist of Topps Living Set cards with their corresponding print runs:
  • #17 - Chris Taylor (link here) 4,837 print run  
  • #42 - Jackie Robinson (link here)13,147 print run 
  • #53 - Walker Buehler (link here) 7,305 print run

2019 Panini National Treasures - The Dodger Cards

A couple of weeks back Panini America released their 2019 National Treasures brand. As you know, this is a high-end product that will cost you about $500 to $600 for one box of eight cards -- all of which has either an autograph or game-used relic piece embedded within it. Go here for a complete checklist. Unfortunately, I have yet to see every Dodger card available, so there are numerous omissions below. Also, as always this product has no team logos, so there's a bunch of airbrushing on the cards.

2019 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Baseball -- All the Dodger Prospects

Panini's 2019 Contenders Draft Picks Baseball brand hit stores last week and I've got pics of all the Dodger prospects highlighted in it. It includes regular suspects like Gavin Lux, Miguel Vargas and Diego Cartaya, and a couple of 2019 Dodger draftees who are looking to make a name for themselves -- Kody Hoese and Michael Busch.

2019 Topps Now - #970, #971 & #972 - Game 3 Victory


Game 4 of the 2019 NLDS is just in a few hours. In the meantime, here is a look at the three Dodgers' 2019 Topps Now cards that were made available today. First, check out the above Russell Martin card that celebrates his clutch go-ahead two run double in the sixth inning off Game 1 starter Patrick Corbin to give the Dodgers the lead for good. Per Adam McCalvy at MLB.com:
“I just remember in the back of my mind, we had a meeting and we went over Corbin,” Martin said. “And with two strikes and guys in scoring position he doesn't really throw many strikes. He's going to try and make you chase a little bit. And the more pitches I saw, the more I felt comfortable. I had some pretty easy takes, got back in the count, and then he just left a breaking ball a little bit up.”

Let's hear it for the old guys! Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“What he’s done for our entire group, namely the young catchers, just the entire group of ball players, his insight, his experience — and now you talk about when he does get an opportunity to play, just his toughness, his compete and obviously the at-bat quality…he’s got some big hits for us this year, none bigger than the one tonight,” Roberts said.
Old guy Russell Martin was a major catalyst for the Dodgers last night. After trailing for most of the night, he came up with two-on and doubled to give the Dodgers a lead that they would not relinquish. His hit started a rally that would score seven runs in the sixth inning, and would provide starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu with his third career playoff win.

The Dodgers eventually win the series the next day to advance to the World Series. In 1978, in Game 4 of the NLCS, the Dodgers defeated the Phillies on a tenth-inning run scoring single by Bill Russell to win the NL pennant and earn the a right to face the Yankees in the World Series (boxscore).

2019 Topps Now -- #948, #949 & #950 -- NLDS Game 1 Victory


What a great way to start a playoff series. Our starting pitcher went six strong innings of scoreless ball, a rookie hit a home run in his first playoff at-bat, and 'Funky Muncy' came through when he needed to. On top of that, there are now three new Dodgers' 2019 Topps Now and six different autographed relics cards available for fans to order.

The first card available celebrates Walker Buehler's outstanding performance on the mound. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse.
Walker Buehler paid his manager handsomely for entrusting him with the Game 1 start in the NLDS. The 25-year-old flamethrower hurled six shutouts innings, allowing just one hit and striking out eight batters/ Buehler kept the Washington Nationals starting lineup on its heels all night, protecting a 1-0 lead for most of his start.

MLB Goes Hypebeast -- A Mitchell & Ness / BAPE Collab Includes Dodger Goodies


A Bathing Ape, otherwise known as BAPE, has just joined forces with Mitchell & Ness for a MLB inspired collaboration that features logo-heavy varsity jackets, baseball jerseys and a T-shirts. Four teams have been chosen -- Yankees, Mets, Angels and the Dodgers (locations where BAPE has their only US stores) --  and they are now available. Per Sophia Caraan at Hypebeast:
The BAPE x Mitchell & Ness MLB collection will be pre-released at BAPE STORE NEW YORK and BAPE STORE LOS ANGELES on September 28, and will be available globally at A BATHING APE locations, US.BAPE.COM, BAPE.COM WEB STORE and ZOZOTOWN on October 5.
I guess the kids would say that this stuff is fire.

Blog Kiosk: 10/4/2019 - Dodgers Links - Ten More Wins!


Walker Buehler was stifling last night. In six innings he struck out eight, walked three and allowed just one hit -- a lone single to Soto in the second inning (boxscore). Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
“He loves the spotlight, loves pitching big games, loves this atmosphere. He answers the bell every time,” Justin Turner said. “If you know Walker, it’s not surprising. He’s very, very, very, very, very confident in himself. He loves it. He thrives on these situations.”
Now the Dodgers have a 1-0 series lead in the NLDS, and have longtime ace Clayton Kershaw pitching tonight.

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1955 the day Dodger fans had been waiting for finally happened. On this day the Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees in Game 7 of the World Series to win a championship for the very first time in franchise history. In 1959 the Dodgers won the teams very first playoff game in Los Angeles when they defeated the Chicago White Sox, 3-1. 92,234 fans attended the game at the LA Coliseum, setting a new record for attendance for a World Series game. This win put them up two games to one in the series.  They would win the World Series in the sixth game four days later. In 2006 the worst play in Dodgers playoff history happened (in my opinion) when two Dodger runners are thrown out at home plate on the same throw during Game 1 of the NLDS against the Mets. You can relive the horror here.

He walloped a Ralph Branca pitch in the ninth inning at the Polo Grounds for a walk-off victory, 5-4, during the deciding game of a three-game series to decide who would go to the World Series.

Now that the season is officially over, here is a look at a couple of 2019 Topps Now MLB Leader cards that feature a Dodger. First, Hyun-Jin Ryu took home the ERA crown with an 2.32 ERA. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Hyun-Jin Ryu started the most games since his rookie season in 2013 and did not disappoint.

Ryu struck out 163 batters and started 29 games in his stellar 2019 campaign.

2019 Topps Now -- #917 & #922 -- Franchise Record 106 Wins


This is likely the last Dodgers' 2019 Topps Now card of the regular season, and it highlights yesterday afternoons win over the Giants. As you surely know by now, that victory was the clubs 106th of the year - a new franchise record. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“I’m going to take a moment to appreciate what we did as an organization,” said manager Dave Roberts. “When you’re talking about the regular season and all those great teams in Dodger history, it takes a lot to accomplish what we accomplished as a group.”

With the Dodgers weekend sweep of the Giants, they recorded a franchise best 106 wins for the season. Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
“All those great teams in Dodgers history, it takes a lot to accomplish all we’ve accomplished as a group and organization,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. “Very proud of everyone, top to bottom. It’s something no one can take away from us.”
Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“It’s special,” Seager said to SportsNet LA’s Alanna Rizzo. “The work’s not done. We’re going to try to go finish business.”

Check out Some "Costume Travel Day" Custom Fantasy Baseball Cards


I just could't help myself. Check out a bunch of custom fantasy baseball cards I put together this afternoon.

2019 Futera Unique Onyx Prospects & Legends Baseball -- The Dodger Cards

Earlier this month Onyx and a company named Futura (who is totally new to me) released a card collaboration non-licensed Baseball card set that features both prospects and some living legends -- called 2019 Futera Unique Onyx Prospects & Legends Baseball. As is typical, there are no team logos anywhere. Go here for a complete checklist.

Only three Dodgers are available -- Gavin Lux, Keibert Ruiz and Mike Piazza. Unfortunately, not all of the individual cards have been revealed. The product is limited to only 75 cases (900 boxes or 3,600 packs). Nevertheless, I've got pics of some of the Dodger cards that are available.

Additionally, if you think Will Smith is the 'cat's meow' then wait til you get a look at our other top catching prospect -- Keibert Ruiz. He's got ten different cards available in this set (more than any other Dodger), and is considered to have a much better bat than the the 'fresh prince of Chavez Ravine."

Yesterday was "Costume Travel Day" for the Dodgers. Heck, everyone who boarded the plane, including travelling staff, had to join in on the fun.

If I can find the time, I will make a bunch of fantasy baseball cards of them in costume.

On another note, the Dodgers, on the back of Kershaw's six innings of scoreless two-hit ball, defeated the Padres, 1-0, last night. This was his last outing of the season. Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
“You’re just building confidence,” said Kershaw. “No matter how long you play this game, you struggle and your confidence will go here and there at times. Today, just went in with the mindset to be super aggressive and keep going and don’t worry about all the stuff that’s happened. The results are better today, for sure. 
“If I had pitched bad today, it wouldn’t be the end of the world, but it wouldn’t have been fun going into the postseason knowing I had struggled. It’s definitely good to get some momentum and confidence going and realize the pitches I need to make are still in there. It was good, for sure.”

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1936 future Dodger Hall of Fame skipper Walter Alston played in his only Major League game. It was as an 24-year old first baseman for the Cardinals, and he got into the game as a late-inning substitution for Johnny Mize. He would commit an error on the field in two chances, and only get a single at-bat -- he struck out. In 1951 future basketball Hall of Famer Bill Sharman was on the bench for the Dodgers as a 25-year old prospect. On this day he would be thrown out of the game, along with 14 other teammates, for "bench-jockeying" after a close play at home. He would never get a chance to play a Major League game, and thus became the only player to be ejected from a game without ever appearing in one. In 1961 Sandy Koufax recorded seven strikeouts against the Phillies to set a new National League record for strikeouts in a season at 269. The mark was previously held by Giants hurler Christy Mathewson who set it in 1903 with 267 strikeouts. In 2000 the Team USA Baseball club, skippered by Tommy Lasorda, beat the Cuban ballclub to win the gold medal in the Olympics.

Congrats, Kenley!

Last night Kenley Jansen recorded his 300th career save -- all as a Dodger. I know the past couple of years has been a long hard slog for the closer, so reaching this milestone I think will prove important to his mindset. Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
“I know the second half hasn’t gone well at all,” Jansen said. “Just a lot of noise, let’s say it like that. I just have to show myself being here for my teammates. I never lost the confidence in myself. The numbers don’t look good when I go back-to-back, Doc and I talked about it today. It’s something I need to prove. Scientists are not right all the time and I want to prove them wrong.”

Goldin Auctions: Kenta Maeda Rookie Superfractor is Available


Goldin Auction is currently running their October Legends auction and it's got a card that you don't see too often at these established auction houses. Featured here is a modern issue card, and it represents one of the top Kenta Maeda cards in the hobby. It is his 2016 Bowman Chrome Prospects rookie card and it's of the highly coveted 'Superfractor' variety -- meaning it's a 'one-of-one' card (Auction Link).

Best yet, this auction might be able to answer a question that I've always wondered about. If you had a card to sell (assuming it's a high-dollar item), would you be better off selling it on your own through eBay, or should you reach out to an auction house?

The reason I can ask this question is that this exact card sold in August on eBay for $749.99 (you can see that listing here). So, it'll be interesting to see if this card will sell for significantly more or less than its sale price of just one month ago.

BTW, arguably the best Maeda card you can get is the autographed version of the above card.... And wouldn't you know it. That card sold last month too. It closed at $1,200.00 (eBay Auction Link). You can see it on the right.

As for other Dodger stuff in Goldin's auction I really like the below painting by artist Greg Gutierrez. He is an Southern California based artist who is probably best known for his book, "Zen and the Art of Surfing."

As you can see, his painting is of Jackie Robinson rounding first base. (Auction Link)

Rich Hill had something to prove. He came out last night to show that he can help this club win in the playoffs, and in doing so ended up recording five strike outs in two innings of work. Per Cary Osborne at Dodger Insider:
“I want to pitch. I want to help this team in the postseason,” Hill said. “Hopefully I can prove that I can help the team do that. The main goal is October, and I believe today was a step in the right direction, and I certainly want to continue to go in the right direction on Sunday.”
Dave Roberts adds more:
“There’s a lot of will, there’s a lot of fight in there with Richie,” Roberts said. “You could see there were grimaces in there. There was trying to feel for things as far as the knee and trusting letting the fastball and letting the breaking ball go.”
BTW, Hill's five strike outs gives him 1,000 for his entire career. Congrats!
