Rookie infielder Chris Taylor had a legendary night at the plate. In fact, it was so great he ended up putting himself in the Dodgers record books. In a three for five night, Taylor recorded a double, triple and a grand slam. Furthermore, his homer was the first time in Los Angeles Dodgers history, and fourth time in franchise history, that a Dodger recorded his first Major League home run as a grand slam. Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
"Mentally, it's big to have a game like this, especially early in my season as far as the big leagues," he said. "The biggest thing is for my confidence and to help me relax and play free like I did at Triple-A."In honor of his fantastic evening Topps is making a 2016 Topps Now card that you can now order.

UPDATE: The print run for this card is 260.
