red hot blue

please don't judge me, but even though i am of the mind that there are way too many parallels of the topps flagship base cards, i am a fan of the red hot foil cards that were introduced in 2014.  hypocritical, perhaps, but i look at it as one or two parallel versions are ok, and i would choose red hot foil over any of the others.

i don't have the complete dodger team set from series 1 and 2, but i've got most of them.

clayton kershaw
matt kemp
carl crawford
zack greinke
kenley jansen
hyun-jin ryu
andre ethier
mark ellis
yasiel puig (highlight/checklist)
hanley ramirez
michael young
josh beckett
chad billingsley
brandon league
ricky nolasco
brian wilson
and adrian gonzalez
i also recently picked up a copy of gonzalez's other red parallel from the set.
the target red border parallels pale in comparison.  unfortunately, i only have the aj ellis target red parallel in my collection currently
in fact, by my count (i've shown some other red hot foil parallels previously), i am in need of not only aj's red hot foil parallel, but those of onelki garcia, juan uribe, clayton kershaw league leader (with jose fernandez and matt harvey), and clayton kershaw cy young.  i'll keep an eye out.
