2017 Topps Now -- #577 -- Darvish Fastest Pitcher to 1,000 K's in MLB History

Last Nigh Darvish did something faster than any other ballplayer to have played the game. He struck out his 1,000th career batter in just 812 innings. The next fastest was Kerry Wood with 853 innings, then Stephen Strasburg in 855.1 inning. Unfortunately, his feat was overshadowed by another Dodger loss. Per Eric Stephen at True Blue LA:
“We want to win, and I wanted to go deep in the game. Those are the goals I had today,” Darvish said. “A couple guys came in and congratulated me, and that was great, but that wasn’t my goal today.”
He added further, per ESPN:
"It was not much to me," Darvish said of the milestone. "My goal is not that."
Nevertheless, it's an accomplishment worthy of recognition. Featured here is the newest 2017 Topps Now Dodgers Baseball card -- featuring Yu Darvish. Go here to check it out and order.
