2017 Topps Now - #792, #793, #794, #795 & #796 - Bring On the World Series

You knew this was coming.

Following last night's overwhelming NLCS victory comes a plethora of Topps Now cards to celebrate the occasion. There are five different 2017 Topps Now cards and seven different autograph/game-used base relic cards of Kiké Hernandez available. Unfortunately, all of the Kiké auto/relic cards are all now sold out. A complete listing is at the very bottom. Below is a look at the five cards that honor last night's win.

First up is a card that makes note of Cody Bellinger's first inning double to drive in the Dodgers first run of the game in the first inning. Go here to check it out and order. See the reverse of the card on the right.

Clayton Kersahw's brilliant six inning evening is the subject of the Dodgers second card. Of all the guys on the team who deserve a chance at the World Series it's him. Go here to check it out and order. Per Brandford Doolittle at ESPN:
"There are just so many things that I could probably touch on," manager Dave Roberts said. "The first thing that comes to mind is Clayton and how long he's been a Dodger and how much he's wanted this opportunity to win a championship."
Kershaw adds:
"To be a part of an organization like this that gets to go to the postseason five times in a row and seven out of my [10 seasons]," Kershaw said. "That doesn't happen very often. Patience isn't the right word, but I guess I'm just thankful that I've gotten to have this many opportunities to get here. That's a testament to this organization."

And here's the card that tells us all about Game 5. This card features Kiké Hernandez and it celebrates his three homer night; including the grand salami. Go here to check it out and order. Per Cary Osborne at Dodger Insider:
“Every year it’s been a fun year for (our) guys. But there’s something about this year,” Kershaw said. “Just, for example, Kiké tonight, he told me, ‘Hey, I’ve got your back tonight. He said that before I even went out there. Then he goes and hits three home runs.’”

This fourth card makes note of the series co-MVP's -- Justin Turner and Chris Taylor. Go here to check it out and order. Per the description on the reverse:
Chris Taylor and Justin Turner have each had an incredible run in the NLCS for the Dodgers, which continued in Game 5. Taylor doubled to lead off the third innings and scored on Turner's single to open a 3-0lead for the Dodgers, who went on to defeat the Cubs, 11-1, and advance to the 2017 World Series.

Lastly, here is a team card that shows both the immediate celebration on the mound after the games last out and the cheerful team photo of the club on the field on the reverse. Go here to check it out and order.
