2015 N.L. West Division Champions: Los Angeles Dodgers

For the 3rd year in a row, the Los Angeles Dodgers win the N.L. West with an 8-0 victory over the Giants in San Francisco.  Here are your 2015 Dodgers.

Looking through this team set, I noticed that at least one key card is missing: Don Mattingly.  I wish Topps would bring back the Manager's card.  If they didn't want to dedicate an entire card to just the manager, then Topps could also put the coaches on there too and make it a multi-person card.  Both, the Manager and his coaches put on the team uniform everyday and go out to the ballfield for games and practice.  They deserve to have a card--at least the manager.

  1. I totally agree with you about the no manager and coach thing. Coaches haven't made an appearance since '83 (unless you count some of the select team sets from about 2008 to the present), and Topps dropped managers from '94-'00, only to phase them out again around 2010. As a collector, it is always fun to find a subset card like a manager, coach, or 4 person prospect card, and as a former autograph collector, I would've loved to have more cards of managers and coaches to get signed.
