2019 Topps Series 2 Flaship Set -- Some Inserts and Silver Pack Promos

Yesterday, we took a look at all of the Dodger base cards found in the second series of Topps flagship baseball cards set. Now, we can check out some of the inserts that are available.

First, though let's take a peek at the Silver Pack promotion. Like last year, collectors can go to your local participating card shop and receive a free 'Silver Pack' when purchasing a Series Two hobby box. These limited edition packs feature exclusive 1984 Chrome cards with a chromium "Mojo" finish. Go here for more information. Directly below are the two Dodgers' available -- Clayton Kershaw and Cody Bellinger.

Below those cards are the '150 Years of Baseball', 'Home Run Challenge Code', '1984 Baseball Rookies', '1984 Autographs' and 'Legacy of Baseball Autographed' cards.

I think it's safe to say that everybody had a fun time at last nights Blue Diamond Gala in support of the Dodgers Foundation. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“We have a lot of stuff that goes on during the season on off days that guys don’t always look forward to, but I think this is one event that happens every year — as well as Clayton (Kershaw)’s ping-pong event — where guys put it in the calendar and look forward to it,” said Justin Turner, “especially when you have a guy like Bruno Mars performing.”
They raised over $3 million in support of the organization. Photo above of Dave Roberts, via the Dodgers Foundation on twitter. Below are more links to check out:
  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1973 the famed Dodger infield of Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Bill Russell and Ron Cey play on the infield together for the first time. Ten days later they would be inserted into the starting lineup for the first time. In 1998 the very first triple play is executed at Dodger Stadium. It sequence is 1-6-4-5 in the fifth inning -- with men at 1st and 2nd, Darren Dreifort fields a sacrifice bunt attempt, throws to shortstop Jose Vizcaino at 2nd, who then throws to covering second baseman Eric Young at 1st, who then throws to Bobby Bonilla at 3rd to get the final out. See the GIF on right to see the play.
