random cards featuring dodger stadium

let's bask in the beauty of chavez ravine, just as these fine ballplayers are doing on their respective cards, shall we?

1989 donruss andres galarraga
the big cat's uniform goes nicely with the loge and reserved level seats.

2002 fleer premium moises alou.
a cub in an astros uniform in dodger stadium. nice shout out to jim gilliam, the only non-hall of famer to have his number retired by the dodgers.

2001 fleer platinum matt lawton.
another transitional player - an indian in a mets uniform. lawton was part of the 'soul patrol' out here in minny, along with jacques jones and torii hunter.

1988 donruss kirt (what's that) manwaring.
sure he's a giant and a rated rookie, but the only redeeming part of this card is the pavilion in the background.

1999 topps opening day dmitri young.
da meat hook rounding second with the short fence in right visible behind him. it's not quite the pesky pole, but i have always liked the low fence sections in fair territory. in related news, that's about where milton bradley melted down and threw a water bottle into the stands. good times.

I'm not a Dodger fan, but I do like Dodger Stadium. It has aged quite well.
