Adam Wainwright 2014 Topps Series 1 Subset – ‘Super Veterans’

Adam Wainwright 2014 Topps Series 1 Subset – ‘Super Veterans’

When I got back into the hobby of baseball card collecting in the summer of 2008, my goal was to pay homage to the players that helped build my love for the game and the hobby.

The first subset I put together that helped me with that cause was the ‘Super Veterans’ subset from the 1983 Topps baseball card set.  This set is a beauty and it highlights the true legends of the game as their careers were winding down.

For the last few years, I have actively been begging Topps to bring this subset back and pay honor to today’s ‘Super Veterans’.  And while I cannot confirm that they obliged my request, I was very excited to see that a 15-card ‘Super Veterans’ subset was part of the 2014 Topps Series 1 release.

I am building the set now.  Here is the card of Adam Wainwright:

Adam Wainwright is one of the best pitchers in all of baseball.

Upon entering the 2014 baseball season, Wainwright had already solidified himself as an annual Cy Young Award candidate in the NL with 3 Top 3 finishes in the last five seasons.  He is the ace of the Cardinals staff and has a career winning percentage of 64%.  He continues to be among the league leaders in starts, ERA, wins, strikeouts, and batters faced.

Wainwright is a 2-time All-Star, a 2-time Gold Glove Award winner, and a World Series champion.  Based on his history, he will only add to those numbers.
