2017 Topps Chrome Update Series - All the Dodgers Cards

Here is another retail exclusive Toops card brand that can currently be found only at Target stores. It is the Update version of the Topps Chrome set, and it includes All-Star cards and a rookie card of Dodgers phenom Cody Bellinger. Go here to see a complete checklist.

There are five Dodgers in the 100 card base set, and all five cards have an autographed version inserted into packs. Check them all out below. Unfortunately, it appears all the Bellinger autographed cards come only as a redemption.

2017 Topps Now - Seager's Silver Slugger and Bellinger's Players Choice Award

I've got two new 2017 Topps Now Dodgers' cards here. Unfortunately, one of them is no longer available for order (it came out yesterday). The first one shown here can be ordered right now. Featured above is the shortstop Silver Slugger Award commemorative card showing Corey Seager and Francisco Lindor. Go here to check it out and order. Per the description on the reverse:
The Silver Slugger Awards honor the top hitter at each position for each league in Major League Baseball, as voted on by MLB managers and coaches, who could not vote for someone on their team. Francisco Lindor of the Cleveland Indians won the award for shortstop in the American League while Corey Seager of the Los Angeles Dodgers took home the award for shortstop in the National League.

Although this is far from the most artistic photograph you'll ever see, it is interesting. Featured here is a March 1943 ACME press photo (eBay auction link) of America's finest at West Point watching the Brooklyn Dodgers train. Per the descriptor on the reverse:
Dodgers Try Indoor Training Ground -- General Mud was a wartime stymie in the field of sport, today, He ousted the Dodgers from their Bear Mountain training camp and sent them scurrying to the safety of the West Point Academy Field House. Here, soldiers sneak a look through the net as the famous Bums get the kinks out of their batting arms.
