2016 Topps Triple Threads - The Dodgers Autographed Relic Cards

Here is a final look at the Dodgers cards found in packs of 2016 Topps Triple Threads packs.  Below are more of the "wordplay"cards that are similar to the ones I shared yesterday, but with a twist.  These cards include autographs, and as you can see there are quite a few more of them available. Go here to check out all of my previous post on this set.

As for any unusual "wordplay" cards I think there is one worth noting.  One of Justin Turner's cards says, "Justin's Time"  -- an obviously play the inventory management system known to most manufacturing and retail operations.

Blog Kiosk: 10/6/2016 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

Yesterday afternoon the Dodgers jumped on a plane (as evidenced by a video tweeted by Charlie Culberson) and headed out to the capitol for this weekends NLDS matchup against the Nationals.  Once there, they held their first workout at the stadium.  Per Ken Gurnick at, Dave Roberts had this to say about the season so far:
"The thing I'm most pleased with is we've made no excuses and we've persevered," said Roberts. "We've got a tough group of players. In life and in sports, there's always talk about accountability and reasons why you don't have success, but our guys don't have that, and I think that's the thing I can hang my hat on."

  • This Day in Dodgers History:  In 1963 the Dodgers completed their sweep of the NY Yankees in the World Series for their third championship in franchise history.  Sandy Koufax got the win and complete game in the 2-1 victory.  In 1965 Sandy Koufax sat out his scheduled start in the World Series against the Twins due to Yom Kippur.
