2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball - Dodgers Base Variation Cards

Now that you've seen the Dodger base cards here are the handful of short-printed variations that are available.  This time around only Corey Seager and Clayton Kershaw have alternative versions of their cards.  Check them out below.  Should any more variation cards pop up I'll be sure to update this post.

Go here to check out all of my past post on this set.  Go here for a complete checklist of known variations.

I've also added a bonus variation card that features the recently retired David Ortiz.  In honor of Ortiz's yearlong retirement roadshow last year Topps has issued ten different variations in this series -- one of which shows him exiting the dugout at Dodger Stadium.  You can see that card at the very bottom.

The Brooklyn Dodgers and checkers used to go hand-in-hand.

Featured above is a vintage 1916 International Film Service press photo of former Dodgers pitcher Ed Appleton, and as you can see he is sporting an ol' checkerboard style Brooklyn uni (eBay Auction Link).  BTW, Appleton is the only Dodger player in their history to have been born on a Leap Day, Feb. 29, 1892.
