2013 Topps Baseball Cards - More Dodgers Autographed & Relic Cards

I've finally finished grabbing all of the Dodgers autographed and relic pics that I'm going to find.  (see my previous post of Dodger Cards in the 2013 Topps set here, here and here)  Unfortunately, there are a handful that just have not yet shown up anywhere, as well as, numerous autographed cards that come with only a redemption.  Heck, it's becoming an unfortunate fact that many Dodger players have become serial late signers for 'on-card' Topps cards.  The notoriously slow include both Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier.  Now, it appears that Sandy Koufax has joined that mix as all of his autographed cards come with redemption's. 

First, let's take a look at the 50 card silk insert cards in the 2013 Topps set.  There are 50 total cards in this set, and 5 Dodgers are represented.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to grab a pic of the Chad Billingsley card, but the other cards are below.

 SC-45 Josh Beckett

SC-68 Adrian Gonzalez

SC-83 Andre Ethier

SC-100 Clayton Kershaw

The mini set uses the loved 1972 Topps design.  I'll have pics of the Dodger players in the base set later this week.  For now, take a look at the lone Dodger relic insert card of Adrian Gonzalez, below.  There is also an autographed Andre Ethier card, but only a redemption card is made available.

The Greats insert set looks very much like a high-end card set.  They are super thick with a design reminiscent of a Topps Museum set.  The 30 card insert set is only available in hobby boxes.  Sandy Koufax is the only Dodger in the set, and he has numerous relic/autographed cards available.  Unfortauntely, they all come with a redemption card; with exception of his relic insert.  See it below.

A very scarce insert is the 'In the Name Relics' cards.  They feature the letters from the nameplate from actual-worn Workout Jersey's from the 2012 All-Star Game.  Both Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp are available.  Below is a Clayton Kershaw card, but a Kemp card has yet to surface.
