2018 Topps Now - #898 & #899 - Cody Bellinger's Heroic Game 4

Now that Game 5 has started I thought I would put up the numerous Cody Bellinger 2018 Topps Now cards created this afternoon to celebrate his extra inning efforts last night. As you know, he's faced plenty of criticism, of late, regarding his poor start in the series, so seeing him break-out a bit was very welcome.

The first card issued celebrates his belly-flop-catch of a sinking drive to short right field. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Cody Bellinger made an incredible diving catch in the top of the 10th inning to rob Lorenzo Cain od a leadoff hit. With the game tied at one, Bellinger would later win the game on his first career walk off hit in the 13th inning to lead the Dodgers to a 2-1 win over the Brewers, tying the NLCS at two games apiece.

His second card of the day celebrates his first career walk-off hit in the 13th inning. He lined a single to right to score Machado from second base. He then proceeded to run towards the outfield as a friendly, yet aggressively enthusiastic, Blue-mob trailed behind him. Go here to check it out and order. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“It’s probably a feeling you won’t forget, seeing your guys chase after you,” said Bellinger, who watched Matt Kemp celebrate in the outfield after a walk-off double in September and figured he’d do the same thing if he got the opportunity.
BTW, Topps also issued six different game-used base relic cards that you can see below.


Here is a look at the six game-used base relic Cody Bellinger cards that are/were available. At the time of this posting only the cards with the edition sizes of 25 and 49 are still available. Below, I've paired the edition size with its sale price.
