2015 Topps Series 2 Baseball - The Dodgers' First Pitch Cards - Grammer & McCarthy

I really like these "First Pitch" cards put out by Topps in their flagship Baseball card packs, and especially love that the Dodgers are featured in so many of them.

Admittedly, though, I think the Giants (ugh!) might have beaten us out for the quality of guest in this series.  There are cards for Marvel comic mastermind Stan Lee and Grateful Dead percussinist Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart in Giants uniforms.

Officially released today is Topps 2015 Series 2 Baseball cards and featured below are the "First Pitch" cards of a couple of Hollywood stars who are included.  As you might recall, the Series 1 edition included three Dodger cards.  Check out those cards here; including a Jeff Bridges card.

Below are pics of each Dodger card and a video featuring the actual "First Pitch" being made.  Click on any photo to embiggen.

First Pitch

#FP-16 Kelsey Grammer

Kelsey Grammer came out to Dodger Stadium in early August with co-star Martin Lawrence.  Unfortunately, only Grammer is on this card.  They were promoting a new show on FX called 'Partners' where they play Chicago lawyers, and unlikely partners in the law firm.

#FP-19 Melissa McCarthy

Funny woman Melissa McCarthy came out to Dodger Stadium to promoter her movie 'Tammy" on June 6th last season, and as you can see below she hurled a fairly good pitch.  Sure, it might've bounced, but at least it was on target.  BTW, she also announced "Time for Dodger baseball" with her husband Ben Falcone.

UPDATE:  I thought I would add pics of the 10 cards in the Series 2 "First Pitch" set.  See it below.  Click on the pic to embiggen.
