2019 Topps Gypsy Queen - All the Dodger Cards

Topps Gypsy Queen brand was released earlier this week and it's filled with plenty of Dodgers'. There are 13 base cards -- including three short printed Hall of Famers -- and numerous photo variations. Heck, even all the chrome inserts use entirely different pics than what they use in the base set. Go here to check out a complete checklist.

2019 Topps Now - #19 - Dodgers Opening Day Home Run Derby

The first great moment of the 2019 Dodgers season, or shall I say eight Dodger highlights, will unsurprisingly be memorialized with a Topps Now card. As you know, the Dodgers collectively pummeled the hapless Diamondbacks, 12-5, on the strength of eight homers by six different Dodgers'.  Per Ken Gurnick at
“When you see everybody getting good swings, you want to get a good swing,” said Muncy, who led the Dodgers with 35 homers last year but didn’t have one in Spring Training. “I think it was Seager, maybe, after the first couple of home runs he said, ‘Man, I want to hit one.’ He went out there and hit one.”

Do you remember all that talk this Spring about how the Dodgers would play more small-ball this season?

Yeah, about that...

Yesterday afternoon, on Opening Day, the Dodgers cranked out a Major League record eight home runs, including two by Joc Pederson, to defeat the DBacks, 12-5. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“We can enjoy that right now, but we’ve got to come back tomorrow and do it again,” said Pederson, who finished 3-for-5 with three extra-base hits. “Enjoy this moment. And move on.”
