dodger cards are patriotic

i bought a hanger pack of 2014 panini prizm last week primarily because i was intrigued by the 'red, white, and blue pulsar prizm refractor pack!' promised inside.  they look like bomb pops or rocket pops and are perfect for the fourth of july.  here are the three i received - former dodger kiroki kuroda
jorge de la rosa
and taijuan walker
also appropriate for the fourth of july is this 2014 topps wil myers future stars variation i found in a series 2 value box
while the futures game usa uniform is not red, white, and blue, myers is wearing the stars and stripes.  a better team usa jersey can be found on this 2013 topps joe mauer wbc card
and then there are these 2005 donruss champions cards of dodgers - al oliver
darryl strawberry
and jayson werth
- that could not be any more red, white, and blue.

the truth is, however, that when it comes to the home dodger uniform, there is nothing but red, white, and blue.  here are a couple of cards to illustrate that fact - a 2004 upper deck kazuhisa ishii at home in dodger stadium
and a 1995 upper deck collector's choice orel hershiser gold signature parallel
tailor made for the fourth of july.  happy birthday, america!
