2018 Topps Now -- #543 & #544 -- Dozier and Grandal's Electric Night


It comes as no surprise that Brian Doziers magnificent first night as a Dodger on the field has earned him a Topps Now card. Check it out above and on the right. Go here to check it out and order. Per the description on the reverse:
Brian Dozier made his debut for the Dodgers after getting traded from the Twins and has made an immediate impact. Dozier went 3-for-4, which included the back end of back-to-back home runs with Yasmani Grandal in the fifth, a single to start a two-run rally in the seventh and a double in the eighth.
Surprisingly, Topps failed to mention that Dozier also did a curtain call for adoring fans after his homer. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“You hear when the crowd gets into it, ‘Ok, it’s that time,’ but being the first game and stuff it’s kind of, ‘What do I do?’” Dozier said. “But I think Kik√© kind of grabbed me and said get on out there, so it was cool.” 

The second Dodgers' Topps Now card honors last night's 10th inning walk-off home run hero Yasmani Grandal. Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
"We had two slow runners, [Albers] is trying to get something on the ground, I'm trying to get something up in the zone to put in the air," Grandal said. "He hung one, and I was able to get a good swing on it. Matt battled it out to give me time to time [Albers] in the on-deck circle."
Matt Kemp battled Albers in an eight pitch at-bat before lining a single, and that was enough time for Grandal to figure the pitcher out. Go here to check it out and order.
