Ryu's Other Topps Baseball Cards Are Out

Following up on my post from last week featuring a Hyun-Jin Ryu's Topps autographed insert Baseball card, I now feature the other Ryu cards available in packs of 2013 Bowman.  BTW, I'll have pics of all the other Dodger cards from the set in a day or so.

After a stellar start to the season for the Korean starting pitcher, Hyun-Jin Ryu now has a real rookie card to call his own.  In the 2013 Bowman set he is a part of the normal base set and has two other insert cards.  Below is the base card, and it is number #218.  As always, there are numerous parallels.  In fact, I count 10 different variations (including the normal base card).  Below are examples of 4 of them.

On the top left is the base card, and on the right is the gold border parallel.

On the left below is the Silver Ice parallel, and on the right is the State & Hometown parallel card.

Below is the Top 100 insert card.  A die-cut version exist, as well.  (UPDATE: I've added a pic of the die-cut parallel card)

#BTP-77 Hyun-Jin Ryu                                  Die-Cut version

These next two cards are of the Chrome Refractor 'Cream of the Crop' Mini insert cards, #CC-LAD4.  On the left is the normal card, and on the right is the blue bordered parallel.
