2018 Topps Now - #729 - Buehler's Fantastic Night

Walker Bueher is transforming into an ace right before our eyes. On Friday he continued his dominance over the Cardinals by leading the Dodgers to a shutout victory, 3-0, and a tie for a National League Wild Card spot. Per David Wilhelm at
"Sometimes there's just teams you match up well against," Buehler said. "It's hard to explain. That's baseball. There's teams that absolutely kill guys and there's teams that don't throw that good and the line looks good. It's the way the game works. Tonight, that worked out. 
"It's a big game. We're trying to make the freakin' playoffs. That's what baseball in September is about. This stuff is fun, and that's what this game is about."
In celebration of his performance Topps has issued a new Topps Now card. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler held the Carinals to two hits in eight innings as the Dodgers won, 3-0 on the road to pull into a tie with the Cardinals for the second National League Wild Card spot. Buehler Threw a career-high 105 pitches, striking out nine and allowing just two baserunners to advance as far as second. He did not allow his first hit until the fifth inning when Paul DeJong singles with one out. The eight innings pitched marks a career best for the rookie. 
BTW, stay tuned for another Topps Now card to be released later this afternoon for Yasiel Puig's herculean efforts the past two days.
