2018 Topps Now - #581 - Manny Machado's 1,000th Career Hit

Last night Manny Machado became the youngest active player to have ever reached 1,000 career hits, so naturally there's a 2018 Topps Now card to honor him. As much as Dodger fans can appreciate another Manny Machado card in a Dodgers uniform, this newest Topps Now card really should honor his recent achievement as a Oriole. After all, 977 of his 1,000 career hits came as ballplayer in Baltimore. Per Anne Rogers at
"It's always amazing, you know," Machado said. "You work hard, try to put yourself in the best position, and just to reach that is a great accomplishment. Not a lot of guys can do it, and it's something I'll never forget."
"It was awesome," Machado said. "Got the win, got my 1,000th hit, great night."
Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Manny Machado's first time playing at Coors Field was memorable. Not only did he help lead the Dodgers to an 8-5 win over the Rockies, but he recorded his 1,000th career hit. The hit came on a line-drive to center field off Rockies left-hander Tyler Anderson.
