2016 Topps Now: Dansby Swanson #429 (646 print run)

Dansby Swanson's historic night of September 6, 2016 at Turner Field was recently celebrated that the Braves new home of SunTrust Park with a bobble head given away to fans. I would have loved to be at that game last week as it was a pretty cool looking bobblehead. 

Just in case you missed it last season, Dansby's first career major league home run was an inside the park HR. Not only that, he made it all the way around the bases in 14.97 seconds with a dramatic slide across home plate. The Topps photographer was in the right spot and snapped the photo at the right time. Look at the dirt flying. Look at the emotion in Dansby's face. This is a great reason why I love the idea of Topps Now and I continue to support the brand. Surprisingly, this card only sold 646 copies, less than half of what his two previous Topps Now cards.
