2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #6 – Joe DiMaggio, New York Yankees

2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #6 – Joe DiMaggio, New York Yankees

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 #6 – Joe DiMaggio

Career Day – July 9, 1937.  At 22 years of age, Joe DiMaggio showed us a glimpse of what was to come when he hit for the cycle against the Washington Senators.  For the game, DiMaggio went 5-for-5 with a single, double, triple, and two home runs.  He scored four runs in the contest while driving in seven.  The Yankees beat the Senators 16-2.

Progress – 6/25
