2019 Topps Now - #730 & #731 - Smith and Muncy's Home Runs

Will Smith's ascendance has been an utter surprise. I knew that he was regarded as a good-glove prospect, but his barrage on opposing pitchers so far has been something quite to behold. It's like the gods came down and graced the baby-faced 24-year old to be the next Babe Ruth.

Last night he continued his dominance when he rocketed a fourth inning home run to give the Dodgers an early 1-0 lead over Toronto, and it proved to be a historic blast. So historic, in fact, Topps issued a Topps Now card to celebrate the occasion. Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Will Smith has put together one of the best starts in League history, matching Rhys Hoskins with a MLB-record 12th home run in just his 28th game in the Majors. Smith is batting .318 and has become a linchpin behind the plate for a Dodgers team that holds the best record in Baseball.
BTW, Topps is releasing autographed versions of this card. More information about those are at the very bottom of this post.

Following Smith's homer was Max Muncy's 10th inning walk-off home run to win the game. To honor the Dodgers 11th walk-off the season Topps issued another Topps Now card that you can see above. Go here to check it out and order. Per Ken Gurnick at
“I can’t count how many big hits he’s had for us,” manager Dave Roberts said of Muncy. “When we’re at home, we feel if the game’s tied, we have a good chance to finish it with a walk-off.”
