2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Collisions At The Plate’ Subset – Carlton Fisk
The theme of ‘Collision At The Plate’ is one that I think all baseball fans could get excited about. The play in which two players collide with completely opposite goals: 1 putting their body on the line in an effort to score a run for their team. 1 putting every ounce of energy, strength, and will into defending their plate.
Oh yes, the ‘Collision At The Plate’ is the perfect place for baseball drama to be born. And as soon as I saw that the 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen set was going to include a subset of cards with the title of ‘Collisions At The Plate’, I knew I would be going after it.
This is the Carlton Fisk card from the set:
Carlton Fisk was a solid defender and winner of one Gold Glove Award during his playing days. Known as a guy that did not mind getting clay on his uniform, Fisk rarely left a game with a completely white uniform.
He caught 2,226 games behind the plate and amassed a career fielding percentage of .988.
