2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #3 Al Kaline, Detroit Tigers

2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #3 Al Kaline, Detroit Tigers

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 #3 – Al Kaline

Career Day – October 7, 1968.  Kaline goes 2-for-4 in Game 5 of the World Series versus the St. Louis Cardinals.  Kaline hit a bases loaded single in to give the Tigers a 3-2 lead and eventual win.  The Tigers took that momentum and went on to win the next three games and capture the 1968 World Series crown.

Progress – 3/25
