2013 Topps Update ‘Postseason Heroes’ Subset – Jim Palmer

The 2013 Topps Update baseball card set includes a subset tagged as ‘Postseason Heroes.  And with that theme, you would expect to find cards of modern players like Albert Pujols, Edgar Renteria, and Pablo Sandoval but none of these guys made the checklist.

That does leave room for some nice surprises…

This is the card of Jim Palmer from the set:

This card is so nice I had to pick up two of them – one for my player collection and one for this subset.

Jim Palmer is the only player in major league history to win three World Series crowns in three different decades.  He won titles with the Baltimore Orioles in 1966, 1970, and 1983.

In 19 big league season, Palmer made it to the postseason eight times.  He competed in four World Series match-ups, winning three titles.  In 15 career postseason starts, Palmer has a record of 8-3 with a 2.61 ERA.

  1. I like it. That shot has a lot going for it, the great Orioles road uni, the blurred crowd and umpire in the background and Jim’s expression. Nice!
