2018 Topps Now - #404 - Matt Kemp's Five-Hit Game

The newest Dodgers' 2018 Topps Now card focuses on the man, the myth, the legend, Matt Kemp. He helped spark a Dodgers offense that banged out 21 hits -- five of them Matt's -- and scored 17 runs to defeat Pittsburgh last night. Overall, he recorded three singles, a double and a three-run home run. Per Kaelen Jones at MLB.com:
"Staying in the big part of the field, driving in runs, swinging at strikes, staying off balls -- it was a clinic tonight," Roberts said. "Everyone sort of fed off what he did at the plate. Up and down the lineup, very impressive, but obviously, the centerpiece was Matt." 
Said Kemp of his performance: "Felt good. Take that into tomorrow and we'll try again."
Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Matt Kemp is looking to position himself as a National League All-Star starter, as he delivered for the Dodgers in the 17-1 victory over the Pirates. Kemp launched his 15th home run of the season during a five-hit night. The sixth-inning home run also marked his eight straight at-bat with a hot.
