2012 Topps Tribute- The Dodger Auto's

Following up on my post from earlier this week, I wanted to take a little bit of time to show some of the Dodgers autographed inserts in this years Topps Tribute set. These cards look really great, and come already sealed in a plastic case from Topps to protect them from damage. To me, the casing is unnecessary, but I'm sure those condition sensitive collectors out there appreciate the effort.

I count five different Dodgers autographing cards in the set, and found that several of them have photograph variations available. For instance, the Clayton Kershaw has two different autograph card variations available (on top of the parallels that exist). See them below.

Andre Ethier appears to have just one style, but I did run into a "1 of 1" Ethier card with gold ink and "Think Blue" written on it. It's likely every card has a companion "1 of 1" card with a phrase written in by the athlete.

Nathan Eovaldi has three different autographed card variations in Topps Tribute.

Dee Gordon has two different variations.

Sandy Koufax, the "Hit" of the set if you ask me, looks glorious. Check out the "HOF 72" card below.

UPDATE:  Ii've just discovered that Matt Kemp also has some Tribute autographed cards, and there are at least 3 different versions.  See them below.  These were likely all redemptions.


  1. They're all so beautiful! I just picked up the Dee Gordon blue variation/50. I would kill for the Koufax.
