I'm still hunting multiple websites for Dan Vogelbach cards which have eluded me during the 2017 baseball card collecting year, but the chase is finally starting to slow. I figure by the time I finish this series of posts we'll be counting down the days for 2018 Topps Series 1 to hit the shelves.
I'm going to go in chronological order from the first cards produced to the most recent. Each post will contain all of the Dan Vogelbach cards I've acquired from that set and I'll make a short mention of the ones I'm still on the look out for.
So, without further delay, let's get to the first card.
Early on, many baseball pundits were predicting Dan Vogelbach would break camp with the Mariners in April.
Topps Now, arguably the first "set" to produce 2018 cardboard, jumped at this opportunity and placed Vogelbach in its 15-card team set of the Mariners titled Road to Opening Day.
The Mariners only had sixteen more Topps Now cards produced in 2017. Four of them were of Nelson Cruz and eight of them were of the All-Star MVP, Robinson Cano.
Regardless, this is my favorite non-auto/relic of Vogelbach in my entire collection. It's a nice design, a rookie card, and the photo selection is top notch. The man has a great smile.

2017 Topps Now Needs:
It was a big year for Vogelbach... well, at least in cardboard. One set down... a dozen or so more to go!
