a baseball card celebration of the dodgers and the infield of my youth.

here are dodgers in spades
here's the fourth and last suit of cards from the 2005 baseball hero deck of dodgers. the more recent players are featured as spades. i use 'most recent' broadly, as this group spans from the 1980's to 2005...
eric gagne is the only reliever to crack the aces in the set. mike scioscia at catcher is nice, even though he finished his time with the dodgers in 1992. eric karros at first, steve sax at second, adrian beltre at third, and cesar izturis at short. an outfield of gary sheffield, milton bradley, and shawn green, plus ramon martinez, hideo nomo, kevin brown, and mike piazza as the high numbered 'bench' cards.
