The Topps Living Set - #17 Chris Taylor - The First Dodger

Have you heard of the Topps "Living Set"?

Introduced at the beginning of this season, Topps has created a whole new concept in collecting. They have put together a set that has will have no end and is not tied to any specific season or era. Rather, it's a cross-generational brand that will issue one card for every player -- unless that player changes teams. In other words, this set will continue to grow in size seemingly forever with only one card per player/per team. For instance, ten years from now they will still be adding to the set, and assuming a player like Clayton Kershaw never changes teams, you will only find one card of him available.

“We’re starting to play more like us, which is nice,” Seager said.
The Dodgers are slowly but surely returning to the juggernaut we always knew they were.
"We played a full game,'' said Seager, who went 7-for-16 in the series. "We pitched well, we hit well, we came up with hits with runners on base. That is how you get it going and it is a really good recipe for success.''

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1890 the Brooklyn Bridegrooms (Dodgers) play their very first game as a member of the National League. In 1938 Dodgers outfielder Ernie Koy hit a home run in his first major league at-bat. In 1956 Roy Campanella recorded his 1,000th career hit at New Jersey's Roosevelt Stadium - a tenth inning double. This was the first ever MLB game played in New Jersey. The Dodgers would play several home games here just prior to moving to Los Angeles. In 1968 Met's hurler Nolan Ryan throws an Immaculate Inning (three strikes out on nine pitches in one inning) against the Dodgers in the third inning.
