Topps 2012 Series 2- Dodger Variations

The news from the card collector front is that Topps just released Series 2 of their flagship 2012 Baseball card set.  It includes 10 new Dodgers cards in the base set.  Unfortunately, they still refuse to acknowledge the existence of AJ Ellis.  Our potential All-Star catcher still does not have a regular issue Baseball card.

What's up with that Topps?

Anyway, before I showcase the base set and some of the inserts from Series 2 I wanted to point out a couple of interesting variations.  Both Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw have short printed variation cards inserted within packs of Series 2 cards.  Check them out below.

The Matt Kemp card is a variation from the Series 1 card.  On the left is the Kemp variation found in Series 2, and on the right is the Series 1 base card to the set.  At this time it is unknown how scarce the card really is. 

Clayton Kershaw did not have a Series 1 card.  In Series 2 he has 2 base cards.  On the left is the short printed variation, and on the right is the normal Kershaw base card in the set.
