2018 Leaf Trinity - All the Dodger Cards

Leaf continues to boggle the mind. It is the middle of July 2019 and they saw fit, for whatever reason, to release a brand new prospect-based baseball card set called 2018 Leaf Trinity.... 2018? They've done this before, but never this late in the year.

Featured below are the only two Dodger prospects found in boxes -- Keibert Ruiz and DJ Peters. Go here to check out a complete checklist. BTW, it's likely that there are several different "inscribed" signature cards for both of them, the listing below is not entirely complete.

AJ Pollock is doing everything he can to make sure we haven't forgotten him. Since coming back from the IL on Friday he has gone 6-for-14 with two home runs with six RBI's. On Saturday he said, via Ken Gurnick at
“It’s only two games, but I like where I’m at,” Pollock said. “Physically, feel great, my legs feel really good and I’m in a good place health-wise. Hopefully I can have different results than my first go-round. It’s fun to get back. It’s a great group to be part of.”

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1960 play at Candlestick Park is halted for 24 minutes after Giants first baseman Willie McCovey hits a Don Drysdale pitch in the second inning to shallow left field that no one can see due to thick fog. McCovey is given a "invisible triple." In 2004 Eric Gagne records his 24th save of the season, helping defeat the Diamondbacks, 4-3. The save is his 130th as a Dodger -- breaking Jeff Shaw's record for most career saves in franchise history. In 2017 Cody Bellinger hit for a cycle against the Marlins at Marlins Park -- becoming the first Dodger rookie to have ever done so. You can watch highlights of the game here.
