2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #13 – Evan Longoria, Tampa Rays
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 #13 – Evan Longoria
The Career Day – September 28, 2011. Longoria put his Rays team on his back in this game. With the team trailing 7-0, Longoria hit a 3-run home run to chip away at the lead and then a walk-off home run that advanced the Rays into the 2011 baseball playoffs. On the day Longoria was 2-for-5 with 2 home runs, 4 RBI, and the greatest home run in Tampa Rays history.
Progress – 13/25
