as you know, one of my mini collections is cards featuring dodger stadium in the background. with those cards, sometimes you get the pavilion roof, sometimes you get the old field level scoreboard, and sometimes you get dodger lefty jerry reuss lurking in the background, as is the case with this 1986 donruss joe price card.
here's another from 1986 donruss (sadly without a reuss cameo) of dave lapoint
one more from '86 donruss - here's junior ortiz in dodger stadium
and he's looking happy to be there.
this is a 1989 donruss all-stars rafael palmeiro card
and here is hall of famer barry larkin's 1990 upper deck card
with the old low railing behind him
a couple of weeks ago i wrote a post dedicated to the murals that adorned the dodger stadium outfield wall during the late 1990's and early 2000's. here are a few more cards with some of those mural images in the background
2000 upper deck joe mcewing
that's part of the mike scioscia heroes mural behind little mac
2002 topps tim salmon
with salmon patrolling right field at dodger stadium in front of pee wee reese's retired number mural
2003 fleer ultra matt clement
i'll finish off this chavez ravine centric post with this 1995 upper deck collector's choice lance parrish card
it's been a couple of years since i've been able to get to dodger stadium for a game, so i appreciate having these cards in my collection to remind me of how great the stadium is.
