Milestones like this is what Topps Now is all about.

Last night Adrian Gonzalez recorded his 2,000th hit of his career, and available today is a 2017 Topps Now card to commemorate the feat. He accomplished the milestone when he lead off the sixth inning with a double to the right field corner. Gonzalez would then later score the tying run of the game on Corey Seager's single later that inning. Go here to check the card out and order. Via Ken Gurnick at
"It was only fitting for him to hit a double for 2,000, he's had a lot of doubles in his career," Roberts said. "The longevity for 2,000 hits, I can't fathom. It's quite a milestone. We have guys that can hit balls out of the ballpark, but to have that professional at-bat like Granderson also gives us, to run up pitch counts, take the walk, it's invaluable. The consistent quality of at-bat Adrian gives us when he's right is taxing on a starter."
Per the description on the reverse:
Adrian Gonzalez led off the sixth with a double to right field, recording his 2,000 th career hit, and later scoring on Corey Seager's two-out single. Gonzalez now sits in the 11th spot on the hits list amongst active players achieving the feat in his 14th Major League season.
