the dodgers did quite a bit of wheeling and dealing yesterday, completely revamping their double play combo from hanley ramirez/dee gordon to jimmy rollins/howie kendrick. hanley was already gone as a free agent, but dee was traded to the marlins for some players and andrew heaney, who was used to get kendrick. i think i might have rather kept heaney or traded him for something other than a 30-year old second baseman. anyway, i had finally found a target red parallel version of dee's fantastic 2011 topps update card a while back
but had never gotten around to showing the former nefarious 9 need. here are a couple more gordon cards that have been sitting in my scanned folder - 2014 bowman chrome
dan haren was also part of the trade with the marlins, so i might as well add him to this post, too. here's his 2014 topps red hot foil parallel
while haren may retire rather than play for a team based outside of california, gordon should roam the marlins' infield for quite some time, at least until the next marlins fire sale.
now that i found that target red parallel, let's take another look at the dee gordon 2011 topps update rainbow.
i'll miss the dee gordon double play cards as a dodger, but on the bright side, i'll only need to collect one of each instead of two.
