2017 Topps Now - #129 - Bellinger & Barnes - Single to Tie in 9th and Walk Off Double in 10th

Well looky here. We have another 2017 Topps Now Dodgers' card and it too features high-flying rookie Cody Bellinger.

As you know, the Dodgers won a crazy one last night. Not only did Julio Urias pitch a gem (hitless for the first six innings), but the Dodgers had to come from behind to win it. And as you know, whenever a team wins it on a walk-off Topps has to commemorate the occasion with a Topps Now card. Featured here is a card #129 that celebrates not only Bellinger's game-tying single in the 9th inning, but it also pays homage to Austin Barnes game-winning walk-off double to win the game in the 10th.

Per the description on the reverse:
The Dodgers tied the game against Pirates closer Tony Watson in the bottom of the ninth with a single by Cody Bellinger. Then came the bottom of the 10th inninf sor the home team Dodgers. Pinch-hitter Austin Barnes, the last position player on the bench, double home pinch-running pitcher Ross Stripling to earn the walk-off victory against the Pirates.
UPDATE: The print run for this card is 416 cards.
