2019 Topps Museum - The Dodger Base Cards

Topps Museum cards are now out and I've got pics of the Dodger base cards below. Go here for a complete checklist.

The brand includes a 100 card base set -- of which there are two Dodger legends (Jackie Robinson and Sandy Koufax) and four current players. BTW, this is a mid-range priced card brand. A box will cost about $200 and you get four packs. Each pack is guaranteed a hit, and in each box you are guaranteed two autographed cards. I hope to have pics of all the Dodger inserts and hits soon.

The Dodgers are the first team in the Majors to win 50 games, but it wasn't easy getting here. They've experienced injuries (losing Pollock, Seager and now Hill) and seen their bullpen falter on numerous occasions. Still, they find a way to win. Per Ken Gurnick at
“Credit to our guys for shutting the door,” said Taylor. “It was big for us to get a lead early there. We’re playing free and easy, relaxed. We’re a very confident group and we’re playing our best baseball.”
BTW, Chris Taylor had a huge game. After struggling for much of the season, Taylor broke out by hitting two home runs (his first multi-homer game of his career), drove in four and scored three times.
