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.
