2017 Topps Now -- #369 -- 30 Wins In Last 34 Games, Best Since 1977

With Clayton Kershaw on the mound last night it's no surprise the club set a new mark. Over the past 34 games they have won 30 contest -- best since the 1977 Royals. In fact, they are the first National League team to do it since the 1936 Giants. Best yet, the Dodgers have won 14 straight games when Kershaw has started -- the best streak of his career.

Per Ken Gurnick and Fabian Ardaya at
"When you think about the last time we lost to a National League team, and all the things coming my way," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, "it's unbelievable. And the bottom line is, we're finding ways to win baseball games."
..."It does feel like every night we find another way to win," Kershaw said. "I think my run support has got to be one of the best in the league, and tonight, that didn't happen and we still found a way to win."
In honor of the Dodgers team achievement Topps has released a 2017 Topps Now card. It features Clayton Kershaw on the front. Go here to check it out and order. Per the description on the reverse:
Clayton Kershaw dominated in his MLB best 15th win of the season giving the Los Angeles Dodgers their tenth straight win. With the win, the Dodgers have now won 30 of their last 34 games, marking the best stretch in franchise history since 1977.
UPDATE: The print for this card is 332 copies.
