i settled in to watch the dodgers take on the reds on april 15, 2019 which was jackie robinson day. i knew that there would likely be a generic "players wear 42" card issued by topps the following day, and i knew that i would likely ignore that card as i had done the past couple of years. not too far in to the game, i knew that there would be another topps now card offered on april 16th as yasiel puig took clayton kershaw deep in the top of the 1st inning in his first at bat at dodger stadium as a visiting player. it's just the type of backstoried event that fuels a large part of the topps now engine.
sure enough, topps posted the following image on their website the next day.
you may recall that the very first year topps now was issued, there was a lawsuit filed by a guy who had bought a card because the prototype version on the website showed an error of some sort, but the card he received did not, as the error was corrected prior to printing. in this case, i was very pleased to see that the text had been corrected on the printed version of the card:

i did find a duplicate of a different card of joc to put in the dodger stadium binder from a pack of 2019 topps big league
