2020 Topps Inception - The Dodgers Base Cards

Thank goodness new Baseball card sets are still finding their way into collectors arms. Without them, I think some folks would go a little crazy -- especially given how wild things have been.

Today is the official release date of Topps 2020 Inception Baseball card brand, and I've got pics of the six Dodger base cards found within packs. Check them all out below. Go here for a complete checklist.

This is one of the more colorful sets available. The player portraits have a look of a painting, with splashes of abstract color like a Pollock or Kandinsky in the background. A total of six different color backgrounds are available -- green, purple, magenta, red, orange and blue. A box will include one pack of seven cards, and it will cost you about $60 to $70 per box. You are guaranteed one autographed card per pack.

This is just charming. Featured here is a vintage press photograpgh (P&A Photos) of former Dodger owner Charles Ebbets with his wife Grace (eBay auction link). Per the descriptor on the reverse:
"Squire" Ebbets, owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers and his wife picking oranges at Clearwater, Fla., where his team is in training. The "Squire" has always been a shrewd business man and a judge of good baseball material. Here's hoping that he hasn't picked any "Lemons" on his team.
