2019 Topps Archives Snapshots -- All the Dodgers Cards

The Topps online exclusive Archives Snapshots cards have been making their way onto eBay recently, so I thought I'd share pics of all the Dodger cards that are available. Unfortunately, only three Dodgers can be found -- Eric Gagne, Max Muncy and Stave Sax. Go here for a complete checklist.

2019 Topps Now - #822, #827 and the Dodgers Postseason Team Set

There are a bunch of Dodgers' Topps Now cards available today; including some autographed cards featuring rookie Gavin Lux.

As you know, Lux hit hit first home run of his career last night. At the very bottom of this post I share pics of all the auto'd cards. Go here to check out the above card to order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
In a game in which the Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the NL West Division title, it was Gavin Lux who impressed with the first home run of his MLB career. The roundtripper was one of the rookie's three hits, as the Dodger scored seven runs and beat the Baltimore Orioles 7-3.

WooHoo! Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“The feeling never gets old,” (Russell) Martin said. “We’ve had a good record for a while, so we kind of felt like this moment would happen at some point. But the thing is, the group that we have, that’s what you think about. You think about the people that we have here. Celebrating this moment with good people is what matters, for me at least.”
Per Eddie Matz at ESPN:
"You got to tip the hat to the front office and the job that they do every year creating so much depth," Justin Turner told Spectrum SportsNet LA after Tuesday's victory. "You look at the guys around this room, I think every single guy had their finger on winning this division for the seventh straight year. So many good players [with] one goal in mind -- that's to win the World Series."

  • This Day in Dodgers History: In 1959 the Dodgers defeated reliever Elroy Face and the Pirates, 5-4; thereby, ending Face's consecutive win streak at 22. He finished the season going 18-1 (as a reliever, mind you) with a 2.70 ERA, 2.60 FIP and a 3.2 WAR. In 1983 RJ Reynolds squeezed home Pedro Guerrero in the ninth for an improbable walk-off victory against the Atlanta Braves. The Dodgers scored four runs in the ninth to win. Tommy Lasorda called his decision to call for the squeeze the most "daring" of his career. Watch video highlights/footage of the ninth inning, hereIn 1998 Kevin Malone is named the Dodgers GM, replacing Tommy Lasorda
