2019 Topps Holiday Baseball Mega Box -- All the Dodger Cards

Available now at many local Walmart's is Topps annual Holiday Mega Boxes featuring limited edition holiday-themed parallel cards. As you can see below, these cards use the basic flagship card design, but adds a whole lot of winter flare to spice it up.

There are a total of 200 base cards and ten Dodgers can be found there. See them all below. Go here for a complete checklist. My favorite inserts are the Holiday relic pieces that include Santa hat relic pieces.
