2018 Topps Now - #865 & #866 - Dodgers Advance on Manny's Homer

For awhile there I was getting worried. The Dodgers were down by a run going into the sixth inning and ended up taking a one run lead following a clutch two-run single by David Freese. But it wasn't until Manny Machado walloped a three-run dinger the following inning did I start to feel comfortable. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“Can’t say enough about him,” said manager Dave Roberts. “Obviously with Manny and a player of his caliber, there are so many expectations put on him. And we said it from the beginning that it’s going to take all of us to win a championship, and he understands that. For him to put together some at-bats tonight, really quality at-bats, and obviously a game-changing home run…you look back at this series, his two homers essentially led us to two wins.”
Manny has more than met my expectations so far. In celebration of his big hit Topps has issued a Topps Now card. Go here to check it out and order.

And here is the team photo card for the advancing Dodgers. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
The Dodgers advanced to their third consecutive NL Championship Series with a 6-2 Game 4 win over the Braves. This marks the first time in franchise history the Dodgers have advanced to three consecutive Series.
