With the exception of Jackie Robinson Night, Cody Bellinger has been featured in every 2017 Topps Now Dodgers' card issued so far this season. This fact emphasizes how important he has been for the club. Since being called up twelve days ago Bellinger has slugged five home runs, driven in fifteen, scored eleven times and is slashing a healthy .357/.413/.786/1.199. The Dodgers are 8-3 during that time.

Last nights exploits is the subject of this newest Topps Now card. Go here to check it out and order. With the bases stacked in the ninth inning Cody Bellinger walloped his first granny.
On a night the Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw gave up one run and struck out nine batters, it was rookie Cody Bellinger that stole the spotlight. Bellinger hit his first career gland slam in the ninth inning, turning on a fastball located nearly at his neck. His  RBI night helped the Dodgers beat the Padres by a score of 10-2.
UPDATE: The print run for this card is 1,479 copies.
