2020 Topps Now - Bracket Challenge - Belli, Betts and Kershaw Advance

It started with five Dodgers (Bellinger, Betts, Buehler Kershaw and Lux). Then it was four. Now, only three remain.

As you may know, Topps is running the only game in town, and it's a Bracket Challenge (like March Madness) that pits ballplayer against ballplayer. It began with 64 of the best in the league and it has now been whittled down to a "Sweet 16."

The Dodgers' to make the cut are outfielders Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts and veteran starter Clayton Kershaw. In cepebration of their recent victories Topps has issued second round Topps Now cards for fans to add to their collection. You have about three days to order them.

The first Dodger available is Cody Bellinger (#BB2-2) and he ably beat Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu in the second round. Check out his card above. You can see the back of the card on the right. Go here to check it out and order.

The second Dodger to claim victory was Clayton Kershaw (#BB2-12) and he defeated his nemesis in Houston, Justin Verlander. I suspect Kershaw's victory was a reflection of both his historical prowess and general sympathy from fans related to the 'Stros cheating scandal. You can see his card above and to the right. Go here to check it out and order.

Lastly, Mookie Betts is the final Dodger to make it to the next round. He faced off against the Royals do-everything man -- Whit Merrifield. Unfortunately, Whit Bird -- as he is often called, could not do it against Mookie. Check out Betts card below. Go here to check it out and order.
