2019 Topps RBI 19 Baseball - The Justin Turner Card

The first retail exclusive "point of sale" Topps cards are now available, and it coincided with the March 5th release date of the ever-popular RBI Baseball 19 video game. It includes a one pack of 2019 Topps RBI 19 Baseball cards each specially marked game box at Walmart. I am unsure how many cards are in each pack. There are seven cards in the set, and the only Dodger available is Justin Turner. Go here for a complete checklist.
