you've likely seen this 2014 upper deck goodwin champions card of former dodger ron cey alreadya poster back in the day, but i hadn't seen this image before. it calls to mind another penguin - all that's missing is the monocle and cigarette…
meanwhile, steve garvey is left in his michigan state duds on his card in the set
i recently picked up another garvey card not licensed by mlb - a 2013 panini america's pastime auto
got the stats on the back right this time.
i failed to add this card from 2011 topps tier one to my collection, unfortunately.
that's a nice piece of the 1980 all-star game patch the dodgers wore in, of all seasons, 1980. it went for $355 which was well above my limit.
let's cleanse the ron cey palette with a card of him in proper dodger attire - here's his 1975 hostess card
here's bill russell in chavez ravine, turning two on his 1980 dodgers police card
looks like opening day, given the banner on the outfield wall.
here's another card of the dodger shortstop - this is a silver parallel auto from 2014 topps archives
russell's inclusion in this year's archives set has probably been my favorite development of the collecting season.
of course, i am also pleased that davey lopes has an on-card auto of his own from 2014 panini golden age
i also recently found a 1988 topps tiffany lopes card - i'm not sure if i had one already or not, so i bought it
i thought about picking up another 'set' of infield collectibles but ultimately passed on buying the 1978 slurpee cups of garvey, cey, russell, and lopes
i believe this is the most recent infield reunion - a photo from the 2013 dodger old-timer game
