i know summer isn't officially over for a couple more weeks, but i've always associated labor day with its end. that's because of back to school, of course. these days, the days, weeks, months, seasons just sort of roll along. anyway, baseball is the primary summer sport, and we are heading towards the end of the regular season. i am happy that i was able to get out to a few games and stadiums this year, but sad that dodger stadium wasn't one of them. i plan to be in los angeles next month, so maybe there is a chance if the dodgers are still playing in the postseason.
this post is going to feature a bunch of cards that contain images taken in the confines of chavez ravine, and i'll kick it off with a 1983 donruss nolan ryan card that i culled from my dad's collection:
1984 donruss charlie puleo
1985 donruss luis aguayo
jose deleon (the original)
davis and durham look like they could have been standing next to each other.
i looked through some fleer sets, too, and found some more to add.
1983 fleer atlee hammaker
1985 fleer update dave rucker
and jeff calhoun
i went through the 1986 fleer update set as well, and found this jim deshaies
plus a couple from the flagship set - bill gullickson
and scott sanderson
back to update for this 1987 fleer update dave dravecky
and dave meads
cards. 1987 was the last year i added the boxed fleer update sets, so i went to comc to see images from later sets. i found this 1989 fleer update randy kramer card
plus a few from the 1990 fleer update set to add:
there were some dodgers, too, that i hadn't yet added to the dodger stadium collection, such as this 1986 donruss bob welch
1981 fleer star stickers davey (davy) lopes
1985 fleer update al oliver
and 1987 fleer mike scioscia
and mike krukow
moving to the 21st century, i added a 2001 topps chrome dodgers team card
the last two dodger stadium cards i bought haven't arrived yet, but i'll share the images. they are both from 2021 topps now, and are turn back the clock cards. here are vladimir guerrero
