They are all available for order exclusively online for the next 20 hours, or so. BTW, you can purchase all three at a discounted price of $24.99 -- they normally cost $9.99 each. Go here to purchase a bundle of all three cards.
The first card, #590, features Adrian Gonzalez (see above) and highlights his solo home run in the second inning. Go here to check it out and order. Per the description on the reverse:
Adrian Gonzalez led off the top of the second inning with an opposite-field solo shot, which gave the Los Angeles Dodgers a 1-0 lead over the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of the NLCS. Gonzalez's home run provided the Dodgers with all of the run support they needed, as Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen combined for nine shutout innings. With the win, the Dodgers will head back home to Los Angeles to play their next three games against the Cubs with the series tied at one game apiece.
Clayton Kershaw's stellar seven shutout innings is the subject of the second Dodgers 2016 Topps Now card available today, #591. Check it out directly above. Go here to check it out and order. Per the description on the reverse:
Coming off his heroic, NLDS-clinching, seven-pitch outing just 3 days prior, Clayton Kershaw found himself on the mound as the starter for Game 2 of the NLCS between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs. Kersahaw brilliantly tossed seven shutout innings, in which he struck out six batters, allowed two hits and walked one. Kershaw was relieved by closer Kenley Jansen in the eighth inning with a 1-0 lead intact, and Jansen supplied a six-out save to cap off the series-tying, 1-0 win.
Lastly, card #592 honors Kenley Jansen's save of last nights game. Go here to check it out and order. Per the description on the reverse:
Coming off a career-high, 51-pitch outing in Game 5 of the NLDS just three days prior, Kenley Jansen was at it again in Game 2 of the NLCS. Jansen entered the game with the Los Angeles Dodgers leading, 1-0, in the bottom of the eighth, after Kershaw brilliantly spun seven shutout innings. Jansen picked up right where Kershaw left off and tossed two perfect innings in which he struck out four of the six batters faced. The six-out save secured a much-needed, series-tying win for the Los Angeles Dodgers.Update: The print run for these cards are as follows: Kenley Jansen (#592) has 381 cards, Clayton Kershaw (#591) has 695 cards and Adrian Gonzalez (#590) has 397 cards.
