2011 Topps Tier 1- Dodger Relic Cards

Following up on my past two post (here, here) focused on Dodger Tier 1 cards, here are some of the relic (game-used) cards found in packs. As always, there are many different variations/parallels available.

Sandy Koufax

Roy Campanella

Pee Wee Reese

I hadn't shown this one previously. It is a dual signature card of Dee Gordon and Cubs rookie Starlin Castro.

A Golden Night for the Gold Glovers

New York was hopping last night. They held the Gold Glove Awards ceremony there and our favorite Dodgers were on hand to celebrate. Through the magic of twitter we can sit in on the fun. Here's a closer look at the prize.

You sure can't go wrong with Jerry Seinfeld at the mic.

But, before we start the show, how about a glimpse at some of the attendees. Here is Tommy Lasorda and Brandon Phillips getting together for a pose.

Yogi Berra and wife, Carmen, take in the festivities.

Of Course, Tommy has to come over to joke with his old nemesis.

Our three Dodgers Gold Glovers take a group picture.

Andre Ethier poses with another fan.

Matt Kemp and Dave Winfield are seated together at the dinner and they enjoy some laughs.

Here are a couple of post awards photos. Brandon Phillips and good friend, Matt Kemp, show off their new hardware.

Then they decide to test them out.

Posing With Your Idols

Here are some great vintage Dodger snapshots I found on eBay of a lucky fan posing with his Baseball idols. From the 1950's. I can't help but wonder at how great a moment this must have been for this kid.

Here is Gil Hodges.
