2017 Topps Now -- #518 -- Fastest Team to 90 Wins in Franchise History

Is it me, or does it seem like there's a Dodgers Topps Now card being issued almost daily?

Last night the Dodgers earned their 90th win of the season -- tops in the Major Leagues. For their herculean efforts so far this year Topps has issued a new 2017 Topps Now card this afternoon to celebrate the occasion. Go here to check it out and order. As you can see, both Curtis Granderson and Justin Turner are prominently seen on the front of the card. Per Adam Berry and Ken Gurnick at
"They've got 90 wins for a reason. They've got some guys that are having career years. It's funny that we didn't see [Cody] Bellinger the whole time, but I don't think they really needed him. ... It always starts with pitching. They got good starting pitching this series, and I think that was the difference."-- Pirates shortstop Jody Mercer, on losing six of seven to the Dodgers this season

Last night's win was the Dodgers 90th of the season. No Dodger club in their franchise has won 90 games this fast in their history. Per Adam Berry and Ken Gurnick at
"I like wins," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "I don't know where we were at last year, but it was toward the end of September with 90 wins. After last night's game, we showed again that we find a way to come back from a loss with a win."
