Topps Now: May 24, 2017

I have said before that I am going to be much more picky about picking up the Topps Now cards this year.  Mostly big events and players that are not very big in my collection.  Sam Travis qualifies as the second prong of that.  Travis was the #3 prospect in the Red Sox system when he was called up to the big league club.  He has been back down and then recalled again since making his Major League debut.  He had two hits in his debut and through seven Major League games, he is hitting .409/.458/.545 with three doubles, and a stolen base.  Eventually it is likely that he will take over at first base.  Just not any time real soon with the way Mitch Moreland is hitting.
