"The Infield"

I'm trying to collect every regular issue Topps card of "The Infield," the Dodger foursome of Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Bill Russell, and Ron Cey. You might recognize them from the great Garvey Cey Russell Lopes blog.

For my collection of these guys, even the non-Dodger cards are cool. As you can see, I don't need any 1980 Topps cards of this group. Here are the holes in my collection (all Topps, unless otherwise indicated):

Steve Garvey
1985 #450
1984 Donruss #63
1982 Fleer #5
1984 Fleer #300
1985 Fleer #32
1986 Fleer #321

Davey Lopes
1985 #12
1987 #445
1988 #226

Bill Russell
1972 #736
1975 #23
1983 #661

Ron Cey
1972 #761
1973 #615 (the one with Mike Schmidt, darn it)
1984 #357
1987 #767

If you have any of these, please email me at

UPDATE: I would have used pictures of 1987 Donruss cards -- that is the subject of this blog, after all -- but only Lopes and Garvey had cards in this set. Cey and Russell both had 1987 cards in the Topps and Fleer sets though.

A smattering of these will be coming your way (although I can't help you with the Cey-Schmidt card as I've been plagued by that card for decades).

night owl, thanks. I figure the Cey/Schmidt card will be my white whale. I'll wait until I stumble across a creased one on eBay or the local card shop. :)
