2018 Topps Now - #900, #901, #902 & #903 - Game 5 Victory

Last night's thrilling victory had many heroes, and Topps was sure to memorialize as many of them as possible in their Topps Now set. Featured here are four new base cards and the five autographed Kershaw cards that sold simultaneously. BTW, all of those Clayton autographed cards are sold out.

Above and below is the Kershaw card and it makes note (on the front) that this game was his eighth career postseason start where he has allowed one run and three hits or fewer. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Clayton Kershaw impressed yet again as he pitched seven innings on three hits in a 5-2 Game 5 victory at Dodger Stadium. The win gives the Dodgers a 3-2 series lead in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series. Kershaw has allowed a total of two earned runs in 26 innings pitched during his last four Postseason home games.

Next up is Austin Barnes and his game-tying single off Brewers hurler Brandon Woodruff. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
After Lorenzo Cain's RBI double off Clayton Kershaw in the third inning gave the Brewers a 1-0 lead, the Dodgers tied the game on an RBI single by Austin Barnes. That game-tying hit proved key as Kershaw came back out to pitch the sixth inning with the game tied at one.

Max Muncy gets the third Dodger card and it celebrates his single that gave the Dodgers the lead. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
The Dodgers took the lead in the sixth inning on Max Muncy's RBI single on a ground ball to left field scoring Justin Turner and moving Manny Machado to second. The RBI gave the Dodgers a 2-1 lead and they never looked back in an eventual 5-2 win taking a 3-2 series lead in the National League Championship Series.

Lastly, but certainly not least, Yasiel Puig's card shows us his eventual game-winning single that scored Manny Machado in the sixth inning. We also get a glimpse at Puig's celebratory kiss (it looks to me like he's blowing a kiss) and bat-toss towards the Dodger dugout. I suppose this could be his new way of showing affection for batting coach Turner Ward. Go here to check it out and order.

On another note, last night's game was Yasiel's 51st postseason appearance as a Dodger -- tying a franchise record with Andre Ethier. Per Todd Zolecki at
"That means a lot," Puig said about his historic postseason run with the Dodgers. "That makes me happy."
