i am scheduling this post well in advance, so i don't know if 2014 topps is on the shelves yet. i do know that i had some 2013 topps update cards scanned and unpublished on this site, and it's probably better to post them before the blogs get all filled up with 2014 stuff.
i am not really pursuing a full rainbow, but i did pick up a few parallels of nick punto's nice looking update card - black
and, oh by the way, here's the plain old base
easily my favorite base card from update.
jose dominguez appeared in a handful of games during the summer
clayton kershaw was the lone dodger representative at the 2013 all-star game
here's a better one - his 1971 topps style mini parallel
here's another dodger postseason hero, but on a chasing history insert
jackie robinson's chasing history card
scott van slyke gets a non-bowman card
topps didn't include managerial cards in the 2013 set, but dodger skipper don mattingly did get a card in the 1971 style mini insert set
i am disappointed that the manager cards seem to have migrated to heritage the last few years. yes, that is in line with the topps sets from yesteryear (will there be a cubs' head coach variation in this year's heritage?) but i wouldn't mind having a flagship mattingly dodger card.
speaking of flagship, here's one more card from either series 1 or 2, i don't recall - a hanley ramirez chasing history foil insert
