2019 Topps Now - #41 - Dodgers' Home Run Record and Comeback Victory Last Night

The third Dodgers' 2019 Topps Card of the season is being released today, and it celebrates not only the franchise mark for consecutive home runs to start the season -- at seven games -- but also their come-from-behind victory capped off by a clutch two-run double by David Freese. Go here to check it out and order. Per Ken Gurnick at
The Dodgers are 5-2 through their first seven games and were two bullpen meltdowns shy of a perfect homestand. They won with home runs, for sure, but there’s more to the team this year. 
“For a few years now, we’ve known that we can hit home runs and we can outslug people, but there’s going to be certain games -- especially in the playoffs -- that we need to do little things, hit with runners in scoring position, move guys over, take what the pitchers give us,” Hernandez said. “That’s what we preached all spring long, and we’re taking it to heart, taking it seriously on a daily basis and trying to improve on a daily basis, and having some success so far.”
Below is what's written on the reverse:
A leadoff home run from Enrique Hernandez locked in the franchise's home run record of a homer in each of their first seven games. This was followed by a two-run double in the seventh inning from David Freese leading to a 5-3 comeback win over the Giants.
