2018 Topps Series 2 - The Cody Bellinger Highlights Set

I made sure to leave the best for last. Featured here are pics of the epic 30-card Cody Bellinger Highlights set (both front and backs) found only in Target retail packs of 2018 Topps Series 2. The set goes through his entire rookie campaign -- starting with his mid-season call-up to his selection as the National League Rookie of the Year.

Clearly, this is a must-have for fans of Cody. Right now you can find individual cards being sold on eBay for just a buck or two, so completing a set can be done fairly cheaply. It'll just take some time and patience.

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1936 Reds outfielder Ival Goodman hit a three-run home run at Ebbets Field that lands and stays on top of the Schaefer Beer scoreboard in right field. Ballpark rules at the time dictate that it is still considered in play, so Goodman rounded the bases for the easiest inside-the-park home run ever. In 1947 Reds pitcher Ewell Blackwell, after having thrown a no-hitter his last time out, lost out on throwing a second consecutive no-no when Dodgers second baseman Eddie Stanky single with one out in the ninth inning. In 1959 Sandy Koufax struck out 16 Phillies batters to set a new record for strikeouts in a night game.
