2019 Topps Now -- #948, #949 & #950 -- NLDS Game 1 Victory

What a great way to start a playoff series. Our starting pitcher went six strong innings of scoreless ball, a rookie hit a home run in his first playoff at-bat, and 'Funky Muncy' came through when he needed to. On top of that, there are now three new Dodgers' 2019 Topps Now and six different autographed relics cards available for fans to order.

The first card available celebrates Walker Buehler's outstanding performance on the mound. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse.
Walker Buehler paid his manager handsomely for entrusting him with the Game 1 start in the NLDS. The 25-year-old flamethrower hurled six shutouts innings, allowing just one hit and striking out eight batters/ Buehler kept the Washington Nationals starting lineup on its heels all night, protecting a 1-0 lead for most of his start.

Our second card honors Gavin Lux for being the youngest Dodger in franchise history to have ever hit a Postseason home run. Per Cary Osborne at Dodger Insider:
“Doc was like, ‘all right, you’re going to go hit.’ I was like, ‘Oh, OK.’ Honestly, I didn’t even have enough time to really process it. It was get up there, go hit,” Lux says of his interaction in the dugout with manager Dave Roberts prior to the at-bat. “Honestly, I wasn’t too nervous. I was more just excited to be out there and try and make something happen.”
Go here to check it out and order. BTW, Topps has also released six different autographed relic card versions of this card. You can see those at the very end of this post.

Lastly, above is the Topps Now card that makes note of Max Muncy's fantastic night at the plate. He batted with the bases loaded twice and made the Nationals pay. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Max Muncy fueled the Los Angeles Dodgers with a two-hit performance, driving in three of the team's six runs. Muncy's Postseason heroics were well documented in 2018 and he has picked up where he left off, leading the Dodgers to a 6-0 victory in the fist game of the NLDS.
