2020 Topps Now - #ST-1 - Dodgers Introduce David Price and Mookie Betts

Here is card #1 from Topps 2020 Topps Now spring training edition of online exclusive cards, and it featured out two newest superstars -- David Price and Mookie Betts.

Oh, boy! I am excited to see them in Dodger Blue. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“We’ve had really talented teams in the past,” Friedman said. “I feel like this is quite possibly our most talented team, but also just a really good group of guys who we couldn’t feel more confident about them going out every night and competing and leaving it on the field.”
Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
David Price and Mookie Betts were introduced at Dodger Stadium as the enwest additions to the star-studded Los Angeles Dodgers. Price and Betts provide a wealth of experience to an already dominant Dodger team, both winning a World Series title with the Boston Red Sox in 2018.

Blog Kiosk: 2/13/2020 - Dodgers Links & news - Pitchers & Catcher Report Day!


Per Sarah Wexler at
"To be able to jump on to a team like the Dodgers, a team that has had the amount of success they've had the last couple years, and then add a player like Mookie Betts, and then to be able to add myself to that mix as well?” Price said. “That's something special to be a part of, and we're both very excited for that.”

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1968 the Dodgers completed a rare trade with the Giants. In fact, it would be 17 years before another trade is consummated between the two clubs. They shipped Ron Hunt and Nate Oliver to San Francisco for catcher Tom Haller and a minor leaguer. Haller would play four seasons in LA; slashing .276/.344/.393/.737. He would also garner MVP consideration his two first seasons in Blue -- coming in 22nd in '68 and 29th in '69.
