2018 Topps Now - #927 - Kershaw's Back-to-Back Game 1 Starts

Here is the lone Topps Now card issued for a Dodger following last nights Game 1 loss. It makes note of Clayton Kershaw and his back-toback Game 1 World Series starts. He's the first person to do it since Jack Morris in 1991-1992. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Clayton Kershaw became the first pitcher since Jack Morris to start in back-to-back World Series Game 1's. Morris achieved the feat for the Twins in 1991 and the Blue Jays in 1992. Kershaw is now appearing in his second consecutive World Series for the National League Champion Dodgers.

Blog Kiosk: 10/24/2018 - Dodgers Links - No Worries! Game 2 is Tonight!

It's always tough to lose the first game of a playoff series. Nevertheless, it's nothing to worry too much about. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“It’s baseball, we know things can change real quick,” Kemp said. “You know what happened in Milwaukee, we lost the first game and we bounced back.”
Accentuate the positive.

On a side note, did you happen to hear the Dodger chants during the game? That was something I didn't expect to hear.
