2017 Topps Now -- #518 -- Fastest Team to 90 Wins in Franchise History

Is it me, or does it seem like there's a Dodgers Topps Now card being issued almost daily?

Last night the Dodgers earned their 90th win of the season -- tops in the Major Leagues. For their herculean efforts so far this year Topps has issued a new 2017 Topps Now card this afternoon to celebrate the occasion. Go here to check it out and order. As you can see, both Curtis Granderson and Justin Turner are prominently seen on the front of the card. Per Adam Berry and Ken Gurnick at
"They've got 90 wins for a reason. They've got some guys that are having career years. It's funny that we didn't see [Cody] Bellinger the whole time, but I don't think they really needed him. ... It always starts with pitching. They got good starting pitching this series, and I think that was the difference."-- Pirates shortstop Jody Mercer, on losing six of seven to the Dodgers this season
Per the description on the reverse:
With their 5-2 win over the Pittsbirgh Pirates, the Los Angeles Dodgers are the first team since the 2001 Mariners to reach 90 wins within their first 126 games, and the sixth team to achieve the feat since 1913. This is also the earliest the Dodgers have ever reached 90 wins in franchise history.

  1. My Cubs may make it to the postseason and I guess they'd have to beat the Nats first (which is doubtful) but I really can't see them doing anything with your team this year. Congrats on the historic win.
