2019 Topps Now - #150 & #154 - Bellinger's 6th and 7th Cards

Cody Bellinger is so 'hot' right now, he has either tied or overtaken three records over the past five days. It all began on Friday when he eclipsed Chase Utleys record of 85 Total Bases before May 1st -- for which he received his 5th 2019 Topps Now card (see it here). Then on Sunday Cody belted his 14th homer of the season to tie a record held by three other players. For this he received his 6th Topps Now card -- which sold a total of 301 copies. You can see this new card above and to the right. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Cody Bellinger joined Christian Yelich as the second player in 2019 to tie Albert Pujols and Alex Rodriguez for the most home runs before May 1. Bellinger's 14th home run was a solo shot in the fourth inning off of Trevor Williams and brought the Los Angeles Dodgers within three runs in an eventual 7-6 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Then last night Bellinger set the All-Time mark for RBI's before May 1st with 37.

For this newest benchmark Topps has issued their 7th card for Cody this season, and it is now available for order directly through them. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's on the reverse:
Cody Bellinger continued his historic start to 2019 season by driving in his 37th run. The run batted in set the all-time record for RBI before May 1. Bellinger leads the League in all of the Triple Crown categories with a hearty .434 batting average, 14 home runs and 37 RBI.
