2017 Topps Now -- #317 -- Seager's Brilliant Behind-the-Back Catch

Although the Dodger were unable to complete their sweep of the Padres yesterday afternoon we did get to see a nifty defensive play by Corey Seager during the first inning of that game.

Watch it below, via a tweet by Cut4:
As you can see, Corey Seager made a behind-his-back blind grab to rob Padres third baseman Cory Spangenberg of a hit. To commemorate the catch Topps is issuing a 2017 Topps Now card.  See it above and below. Go here to check it out and order.

Here is what it says on the reverse:
Corey Seager nearly overran a first-inning popup off the bat of the Padres Cory Spangenberg. Racing into short left field in front of Justin Turner, Seager battled the sun and made an impressive backhanded catch behind his back for the out.

UPDATE: the total print run for the above Seager card is 287 copies.
