2017 Topps Now - #98 - Back-To-Back-To-Back - Walk-Off Win

I really should have put this up yesterday, so I apologize for this late post. Featured here is the newest 2017 Topps Now Dodgers' card, and it predictably highlights Saturdays amazing come-from-behind victory over the Phillies.

As you'll recall, the Dodgers started the bottom half of the ninth inning down 5-2, and proceeded to do the amazing. The first batter, Yasiel Puig, homered. Then rookie Cody Bellinger walloped his second home run of the day to put the Dodgers just one run behind Philadelphia. Next up was pinch-hitter Justin Turner and he continued the round-tripper parade by tying the game with the Dodgers third straight dinger of the inning. The game was now tied and the Dodgers still had three more outs to close the game in regulation.

Naturally, the great big Dodger in the sky continued worked his magic. Five batters and three singles later they had their walk-off victory. Austin Barnes, Corey Seager and Adrian Gonzalez combined to drive the final nail in the coffin, and lead the Blue Crew in their most thrilling win of the season.

This second Dodgers 2017 Topps Now card celebrates this victory and is now available directly from Topps. As off this posting there is about an hour left to order. Go here to check it out. Notably, Cody Bellinger has been featuring on the only two Dodgers' Topps Now cards made this year.

UPDATE: the print run for this card is 587 copies.
