2018 Topps Clearly Authentic - All the Dodgers Cards

Last week saw the release of Topps Clearly Authentic Baseball, and it features just a handful of Dodgers'. Go here to check out a complete checklist.

As you know, this mid-range brand includes just one acetate (plastic) autographed card per box at a price point of about $40. Unfortunately, the Koufax card is available only through a redemption.

You never want to lose a game on a walk-off walk. Never! Per Anne Rogers at
"You're not going to lie about it, it is a blow," starting pitcher Rich Hill said. "You have to regroup. We're going back home to play the Giants, who is another team that's right there. The thing is, you just learn from the mistakes we made here. I know things I have to tighten up. Obviously, this is going to be a tough race all the way down to the finish."

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1910 the Dodgers and Pirates play the second game of a double-header to an 8-8 tie. Even more remarkable is that it includes a boxscore where each team had 38 at-bats, 13 hits, 12 assists, 2 errors, 5 strike outs, 3 walks, 1 hit batsman and 1 passed ball. This game was a tie in nearly every respect. In 1951 the Brooklyn Dodgers held Musical Depreciation Night; where any fan who shows up with an instrument is given free admittance. Approximately 10% of the crowd, 2,423 fans, participate. In 1982 Steve Sax set a team franchise record for stolen bases by a rookie at 41. In 2007 Nomar Garciaparra, for the first time in his career, is thrown out of a game, and had to be restrained by coach Mariano Duncan. Umpire Tom Hallion tossed him for arguing a called third strike.
