2019 Topps Now - #723 - Kershaw Passes Koufax on Career Win List

Last night Clayton Kershaw finally took the reigns as the Dodgers' all-time wins leader for a left-hander -- eclipsing Sandy Koufax's mark of 165. Per Alden Gonzalez at ESPN:
"It's an honor for me just to be mentioned in the same sentence as Sandy," Kershaw said after the team's 16-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. "What he was able to accomplish in his career -- he would've gone a lot longer if he was playing today, probably, because he could've gotten healthy. Just a special thing, man."
In honor of Clayton's most recent accomplishment Topps has issued a new 2019 Topps Now card for him. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Clayton Kershaw surpassed Los Angeles Dodgers legend Sandy Koufax with the 166th win of his career. Kershaw put together a quality start, firing six innings and allowing three runs while striking out six batters. The left-hander's performance was enough to earn his milestone win, as the Dodgers gave him plenty of run support in a 16-3 win.
