2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #4 – Stan Musial, St. Louis Cardinals

2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #4 – Stan Musial, St. Louis Cardinals

I am working on this set because I find it to be the most appealing of the subsets issued by Topps in 2012.

The cards feature bold colors, great images, and a unique horizontal design.

I especially like the ‘Career Day’ theme as it pays homage to some of the greatest individual performances of baseball’s elite players.

Card #4 – Stan Musial

 

Career Day – May 2, 1954.  Musial connects for 5 home runs in a double-header against the New York Giants.  His stat line from the twin-bill looks like this: 6 hits, 6 runs scored, 5 home runs, 9 RBI, 2 walks, and an amazing 21 total bases.  The Cardinals won the first game 10-6, but lost the second game 7-9.

Progress – 4/25

  1. Awesome card! 21 total bases! WOW!

  2. I really wish that Topps was able to deliver a “Design B” for cards like this that weren’t lucky enough to receive the player’s “relic” or “autograph” in the right half of the card. Those versions (relic/auto) are certainly awesome and make for a tremendous keepsake for those of us lucky to pull it from a pack or pick it up individually.

    The picture of “The Man” in this card is a great, vintage shot of a Golden Age legend. I wish the photo could have been extended to cover the whole card or maybe even given us a second photo of Stan from that day or a box score or something?

    That being said, Musial definitely had a Career Day, didn’t he?! I’ll echo McGee-Fan51 above……….21 Total bases – WOW, indeed!
