2013 Topps Chrome Baseball - All the Dodgers' Cards

Yesterday was the official release date of 2013 Topps Chrome.  This set is basically a shinier version of its flagship set - using many of the same photos from their base cards.  Fortunately, there are a handful of exceptions and additions to the set.  The Carl Crawford and Zack Greinke base cards use brand new photographs, and Yasiel Puig and Matt Magill finally get a card of their own.  See a complete checklist of the set here.

Below are the Dodgers' base cards in their shiny goodness.

#19 Adrian Gonzalez                                  #20 Matt Kemp

#25 Hyun-Jin Ryu                                #48 Andre Ethier

#56 Carl Crawford                                #110 Matt Magill

#138 Yasiel Puig                                 #161 Zack Greinke

#175 Clayton Kershaw                          #182 Paco Rodriguez

Like the Series 2 set, there are 4 different short-printed variations available to chase.  See all 4 below.  The Puig and Kershaw cards really stick out.

Base Card Variations

#20 Matt Kemp

#25 Hyun-Jin Ryu

#138 Yasiel Puig

#175 Clayton Kershaw

Every available Dodgers' autographed card is only available through a redemption card.  This includes Hyun-Jin Ryu, Yasiel Puig and Paco Rodriguez.  Sports Collectors Daily tells us that many of them did not arrive in time to be placed into packs.  Although, it appears that the Puig cards are at the Topps headquarters, ready to ship.  See an example below.
