so, now that clayton kershaw has a most valuable player award to his name, he and don newcombe and sandy koufax can tip their caps to each other as members of a pretty exclusive club as pitchers to have won the cy young award and the league mvp. only the tigers have had as many pitchers achieve the same feat (denny mclain, willie hernandez, and justin verlander), while the a's have had two (vida blue and dennis eckersley).
so, let's see some new cards from 2014 topps stadium club. here's kershaw
and here's koufax
here are some of the modern dodgers - yasiel puig
of course, i collect more than just dodgers, so here are a couple of double plays that i added to my haul after seeing them posted elsewhere:
and i also decided to add mariano rivera's card to my final tribute collection
on a whim, i added one more card to my purchase. i am sure that i have mentioned somewhere on this blog over the last 6+ years that lou gehrig may well be my favorite non-dodger of all-time. i've got the iron horse, ty cobb, and rogers hornsby on the short list, anyway. so, i grabbed gehrig's card from the set, not knowing what the photo topps used looked like
now if there were a don drysdale card in the set that happened to have sandy koufax standing next to him, let the record show that i would take it without complaint, which is pretty much how i take all my dodger cards.
