2016 All-Star Game FanFest Promos - The Dodgers Collectibles

Now that all of the festivities surrounding the All-Star Game are done I thought I'd take a quick look at the handful of Dodgers-related freebees given out during the FanFest in San Diego.  As you likely know, Topps was there to greet fans and they had plenty of cardboard to hand out.  Go here or here for a brief checklist and details about their giveaways.  If I happen to miss anything please let me know.

Once again they had a wrapper redemption program, and one of the cards available in the seven-card set features Clayton Kershaw.  Check it out below.  Other players in the set include Bryce Harper, Buster Posey, David Ortiz, Kris Bryant, Matt Kemp and Mike Trout. 

#ASG-2 Clayton Kershaw

Last night was the 24th annual ESPY Awards ceremony and Clayton Kershaw was there, along with his wife Ellen, as a nominee for the "Best MLB Player" of the past year.  Other nominees included Josh Donaldson, Bryce Harper, Jake Arrieta and Mike Trout.  Unfortunately, Clayton did not win.  This years award was won by Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.  This was the third consecutive year Clayton has been nominated for this award, but has yet to win.
