2019 Bowman Platinum Baseball - All the Dodger Base Cards

The Walmart exclusive brand, Bowman Platinum, hit store shelves last week, and I've got pics of all the Dodger base cards. Check them out below. Go here for a complete checklist.

2019 Topps 150 Years of Baseball - #55 - Eric Gagne

No matter your viewpoint you can never truly forget just how remarkable and mystical his efforts were. Eric Gagne was unbelievable... And sure, it was all smoke and mirrors due to steroids... But still, I don't care. Gagne recorded 84 consecutive saves from 2003 to 2004, and I will never forget it.

Heck, to this day I still think back and reflect how fun it was to watch "Mr. Game Over" stroll onto the field and destroy ever batter he faced. It was glorious.

Check out our All-Stars. Although the National League didn't come out on top, I think it's clear that fun was had by all.

I also made a couple of Joc Pederson Home Run Derby fantasy custom cards. Check those out below.

  • This Day in Dodgers History: In 1953 the Dodgers collectively hit a home run in 24 consecutive ballgames. This day's homer was hit by Roy Campanella against Giants pitcher Sal "The Barber" Maglie. Unfortunately, that would be the only run Brooklyn scores. They would lose 6-1. In 1971 the Dodgers signed future Hall of Fame reliever Hoyt Wilhelm. He would retire a year later at the age of 49. As a Dodger he got into 25 games, recorded four saves, a 1.047 WHIP and an 3.14 ERA. Not too bad for a guy in his middle-ages.
