You just knew this was going to happen.
Clayton Kershaw was otherworldly last night. He yielded three hits, struck out thirteen batters and walked just one in a complete game shutout against the Mets, and in the process set a MLB record that hadn't been accomplished since at least 1913. As the newest Kershaw 2016 Topps Now card says on its reverse, he is "the first pitcher to ever record double-digit strikeouts with one walk or less over five consecutive starts."
And there are folks out there who actually claim that Jake Arrieta is better right now... Really?
Featured here is the second Clayton Kershaw 2016 Topps Now card of the season, and it is currently available for order. Go here to check that out. His first card, issued less than two weeks ago (link here), sold only 453 copies. I wonder if this card will outdo that one, 'cause he certainly outdid himself last night.
UPDATE: This issue consist of a print run of 694 copies.
