Catching Up on Dodger Topps Now Cards - #477 Bellinger, Home Run Derby and All Star Set

This past holiday has me way behind, so I'm playing a little bit of catch-up. Featured is a recently produced Topps Now cards that I had failed to write about here. Take a look at the July 3rd card highlighting Cody Bellinger's walk-off home run in extra innings against the Diamondbacks -- the fifth consecutive wall-off victory for the Dodgers at home. The reverse of the card shows us the customary Gatorade dunking by teammate Alex Vedugo -- who seems to have taken over this job from Yasiel Puig. BTW, this card has a total print run of 315.

The next missed Topps Now card directly relates to the recently completed 2019 All-Star Game Home Run Derby. As you know, Joc Pederson was a participant this year, and he did extremely well - hitting a total 60 dingers overall and exciting the crowd in an epic showdown against Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Unfortunately, we do not yet know what this card will look like. It's likely they'll want to use a photo from last nights festivities.

Additionally, there were three Home Run Derby Participant Relics cards available and like the card above it also does not include the final photo.

1 of 1 -- HRD-13C @ $699.99           1 of 5 -- HRD-13B @ $119.99

1 of 10 -- HRD-13A @ $49.99

Lastly, there is an All-Star 2019 Topps Now 15-card set available and it includes three Dodgers -- Clayton Kershaw, Cody Bellinger and Hyun-Jin Ryu. Futhermore, you can still purchase this set online from Topps until tomorrow morning. Go here to check that out and order. Take a look at both the Kershaw and Bellinger cards below, but a Ryu card is elusive. Topps has not provided a preview of his card.
