2018 Panini Diamond Kings - The Dodgers Base Cards and Variations

Here's a look at all of the Dodgers' base and variation cards available in packs of Panini's 2018 Diamond Kings. Go here for a complete checklist.

As you know, none of these cards have team logo's, so they look really weird. I do love the painted look of the cards, but that's not enough to convince me to spend some of my dough on packs. Also, I am tired of seeing the same pics being used over and over again on different brands, but also realize that cost is an significant reason why this is likely to never change.

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1962 Dodgers left-handed rookie Pete Richert made his major league debut by striking out the first six batters he faced -- tying records for strike outs in an inning (4 K's in the 3rd inning), successive strike outs by a pitcher in his major league debut, and consecutive strikeouts by a relief pitcher. BTW, he also won the game when the Dodgers mounted a comeback by scoring seven runs in the fifth inning.
