2014 Topps Series 1 Baseball - The Dodgers Short Printed Variations

Following up on Friday's post featuring the Dodger base cards found in 2014 Topps Baseball Series 1 packs, I now show you the known short-printed variation cards that can be found.  As of this writing there are 11 known Dodger variation cards, and there is a possibility that more may be out there.  The set is less than a week old and collectors are still opening packs and discovering new cards.  If any more pop up I'll be sure to update this post.

As you can see, Hyun-Jin-Ryu, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez and Clayton Kershaw have two variations available.  Yasiel Puig has 3 different variations.  Current print runs are not yet known.

One of the more obscure variations are the "sparkle" cards.  Topps has taken a players base card and hidden a sparkling star somewhere in the photo.  For instance, on the Ryu card a "Sparkle" can be found at the point where the brim of his hat and the Baseball in his hand meet.  Four Dodger cards have a "Sparkle" variation.  At this time, a Clayton Kershaw "Sparkle" is not know to exist, but stay tuned.  I suspect this variation exist somewhere.
