2018 Topps Now - #672 & #677 - Matt Kemp's Walk-Off Weekend

Matt Kemp had a busy Labor Day Weekend, but unfortunately, I failed to make note of a couple of 2018 Topps Now cards issued in his honor.

As you know, Kemp was the big hero over the weekend when he pummeled Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley with an eighth inning three-run homer on Saturday and then a walk-off two-run double off the centerfield wall on Sunday.

The card above and on the right celebrated Kemp's homer on Saturday. The card below make note of Kemp's walk-off on Sunday. BTW, there's still a little bit of time to get this last card through eBay, so go here to check it out and order. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“We said he’s going to do it again,” said Cody Bellinger. “First pitch, he did it again. That’s why we call him ‘Hollywood.’ He likes the big moments.” 
Kemp noticed clips of his hit the previous night as walked up to the plate to face Bradley again. 
“In my mind, I really wasn’t thinking about hitting a home run,” Kemp said. “I really was just trying to get that one run in at third base — just so happened I got two.”
