Better Late Than Never -- 2017 Topps Now -- #484 -- Dodgers to 50 Wins over .500

For whatever reason I totally missed this Dodgers 2017 Topps Now card from earlier this week. So, I figured I should highlight it now -- even though it's too late to order. The card above makes note of the Dodgers reaching 50 wins over .500 since the 2004 Cardinals. Go here to check it out.

The best thing about this card isn't the sliding Cody Bellinger. Rather, it's the slightly out-of-focus Tommy Lasorda siting in the background. It's like he's keeping an ever-watchful eye on the team. Below is the descriptor on the reverse of the card:
The Los Angeles Dodgers continued their history 2017 season by beating the Chicago White Sox by a score of 6-1. With the win, the Dodgers are the first team since the 2004 St. Louis Cardinals to be 50 games over .500. The Dodgers own the best record in MLB at 84-34, and have now reached 50 wins at home in three consecutive seasons.
BTW, this card sold 645 copies.
