2020 Donruss Baseball -- All the Dodgers Cards

Last week saw the release of Panini's flagship Baseball card brand, 2020 Donruss Baseball, and I've got pics of most of the Dodger cards to share with you. Go here for a complete checklist.

The featured Dodgers' Diamond King is MVP Cody Bellinger. Additionally, of the 30 Rated Rookies in the base set three of them are Dodger players -- Dustin May, Gavin Lux and Tony Gonsolin. This is unusual since historically every team is typically given one Rated Rookie in the set. Notably, Hyun-Jin Ryu has one Dodger card in the set -- as part of the Dominators insert set.

Check out all of the Dodger cards below.

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1943 the Brooklyn Dodgers received soon-to-be Hall of Fame centerfielder Lloyd "Little Poison" Waner and Al Glossop from the Phillies in exchange for veteran infielder Babe Dahlgren. Although, Waner did not join the club for the 1943 Baseball season. Instead, he asked to be placed on the voluntary retirement list and took a wartime job at the Douglas Aircraft plant in Oklahoma City. Lloyd would eventually join Brooklyn for the 1944 season (playing briefly with his brother Paul -- also a fellow Hall of Famer), but would eventually be released by mid-June -- He slashed .286/.412/.286/.697 in just 14 at-bats, primarily as a pinch hitter.
