2017 Topps Now -- #443 & #447 -- Darvish and the Unbelievable Dodgers

Two different Topps Now Dodgers' cards have been issued this weekend. The Yu Darvish card above was made available on Saturday -- following his debut performance in Blue on Friday. It is now sold out, having sold 624 copies. Per the description on the reverse:
Yu Darvish pitched seven innings of scoreless baseball, only allowing three hit and one walk while striking out ten batters in the Dodgers 6-0 win over the Mets. Darvish is the first Dodgers pitcher since 1900 to collect 10-plus strikeouts and no more than one walk in his first start with the team.

The second card was made available this afternoon and it celebrates the Dodgers incredible run of victories over the past 50 games. Go here to check it out and order. Per the description on the reverse:
The Los Angeles Dodgers found themselves down 3-0 early to the New York Mets. The Dodgers rallied back with homers from Chris Taylor, Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig, Justin Turner and Corey Seager that delivered the, a sweet 7-4 victory.

This team is just doesn't know how to lose. Per Anthony DiComo and Ken Gurnick at
"It is history in the making," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "But when you get back to the day to day, I don't think anyone's aware of that. As we talked about a few weeks ago, this is who we are. We play the right way and we are finding ways to win games. They slugged early, we slugged late."
