It's a potential NLCS preview on Thursday night when the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Atlanta Braves for four games in Los Angeles, featuring not two of the best teams in the National League, but two of the best in baseball as a whole.

The Braves offense has put up ridiculous numbers all year long, and are closing in on a sixth straight NL East division title. While the Dodgers have surged in the second half, starting to put some distance between them and the rest of the NL West after sitting behind the Diamondbacks and Giants in June and July.

Now, both teams are arguably playing some of the best baseball they've been playing all season, with MVP contenders in Ronald Acuña Jr. and Mookie Betts leading the charge. These teams seems destined for a collision course this postseason, and probably many postseasons after that.

Before they meet on the field, let's take a look at some notable names who have worn both Dodger Blue and Braves across their chest.
