Live Archives Blaster Break Packs 3 and 4

Dodger Stadium has been undergoing some renovations this off season.  The Dodgers host the Angels later tonight which will be the first game played at Dodger Stadium since the remodel.  I am lucky enough to get a chance to go to the ballgame tonight and check out the new updates at the stadium.

I will be sure to take a lot of photos of some of the amenities that catch my eye.  I am really curious to see what this ownership group can pull off next.

Anyways, back to the pack ripping.....

Pack 3:

This Larry Doby card is a Reprint insert which you are able to pull one of these out of every four packs.  Topps placed a gold foil stamp on the top of this card.

The Indians logo appears to be gazing at Larry Doby with great affection and admiration.  I guess that is kind of a cool take on Chief Wahoo.  I guess....

I thought that I had all the Dodgers from this set.  Maybe I am completely wrong and have no idea what I am talking about?  I probably have no idea what I am talking about.  I don't remember seeing this Dee Gordon card before.  It is easy to forget Gordon though.

Pack 4:

Hey, another sweet looking insert from this set.  This Deckle Edge insert features slugger Jose R. Bautista and is slightly smaller than the base cards and of course has a deckle edged border.  The photo is also black and white.  Are all the cards from this insert set in black and white?  Is this a throwback set that was once featured by Topps previously?

Deckle Edge was a set from 1969. It was a 33 card set and I have thought about putting it together one day. All of the cards are in black and white BTW.

The fact that Topps still puts Jose's original Topps contracts signature bothers me. He has worked so hard at assimilating himself, learning English and everything, it just seems insulting that they use his 17 years old signature on cards still.
