2013 Topps Archives ‘Tallboys’ Subset – Stephen Strasburg
With the new 2013 Topps Archives baseball card set release, the ‘Mini Tallboys’ subset is easily one of the best parts of the issue.
The cards from this subset offer a very basic, but throwback feel that screams vintage. The set is 40 cards deep and offers a nice mixture of current players, stars from the 1980′s, and Hall of Fame legends.
This is the Stephen Strasburg card from the set:
I have watched a lot of baseball this season. And of all of the players that I have watched and wished that they had better results, number one on the list is Stephen Strasburg. Stras has pitched well, but the run support that the Nationals have given him in his starts has not helped. His ERA hovers right around 3.00 on the year, and his strikeout and walk numbers are right where they should be. Stras should have 13-14 wins by this time, but it is likely that he ends the year with less than ten. Yes, ten!
