AGon's Big Day and Toles & Segedin's Homer Barrage - 2016 Topps Now - #383 & #384

Just as I suspected.

Not only does Topps commemorate Adrian Gonzalez's three homer day with a 2016 Topps Now card, they also make note of Toles and Segedin's back-to-back dingers in today's offering.  Featured above are two Topps Now cards featuring Dodger players that are now available for sale through Topps online.

Check out and order AGon's card here.  You can go here to check out and order the Toles/Segedin card here.  Click on any pic to embiggen.

Of special note, Rob Segedin's first career home run was not the most exciting part of his day yesterday.  Per Cody Pace at MLB.com:
Segedin, who spent the first six innings in the field before being removed in a double switch, hoped he wasn't going to get a phone call, because Monday was his wife's due date.

"Once I got taken out of the game, I just came in and checked and made sure that she didn't go into labor while I was playing," Segedin said. "Once I heard from her, I was kind of relaxing knowing that I can probably get back in time just in case anything does happen."
Upon disembarking the Dodgers charter plane from Cincinnati he headed straight to the the hospital to meet his wife.  He shared a photo of himself and his wife with the home run ball on Instagram (see that here). 

UPDATE:  The print run for the Adrian Gonzalez card is 298.  The print run for the Toles/Segedin card is 330.
