2017 Topps Now -- #332 -- Chris Taylor's Walk-Off Hit Caps Four-Run 9th for Comeback Win

Why am I not surprised to find both Justin Turner and Kiké Hernandez exuberantly celebrating with Chris Taylor, hero of last nights walk-off victory, in the 2017 Topps Now card featured in this post? They've both been significant catalyst this season -- not only with their bats, but also their leadership. So, showing them doing what they do best -- rooting on their teammates -- is a nice surprise on this card.

As you can see, Kiké is covering Chris with what looks like rosin and Justin is in the midst of flipping Taylor in some sort-of choreographed wrestling move. Fortunately, reports indicate that nobody was hurt.

As for the card itself, it is currently available for collectors to purchase. Go here to check it out and order.

If I'm not mistaken. this is Chris Taylor's third Topps Now card this season -- which is something I never expect to write on this blog. A ninth inning grand slam against the Brewers garnered him two Topps Now cards (see those here) a month ago.

Here is what it says on the reverse:
Chris Taylor had four hits in the game, but none more crucial than his bases-loaded liner over Diamondbacks left fielder Rey Fuentes. The hit capped a four-run bottom of the ninth inning, as the Dodgers rallied to seal the 5-4 comeback victory, completing a three-game series sweep.

UPDATE: The total print run for the Chris Taylor card above is 232 copies.
