Tony Gwynn 2012 Topps Update – ‘Golden Moments’
After bringing enough cards from the ‘Golden Moments’ and ‘Golden Greats’ set into my collection, I am pretty certain that there is no real distinction between the two subsets. Sure, the graphics are different, but that is about it.
Each set celebrates the player’s performance in a single game. Personally, the ‘Moments’ set makes sense with that kind of title. But the ‘Greats’ set tends to make me think of career achievement versus single-game performance…
Either way, I am happy to see that many of the guys that I collect are featured in both of these subsets.
Like this card of Mr. Padre, Tony Gwynn!!
This card celebrates Gwynn’s performance on August 6, 1999. This was the day in which Gwynn captured his 3,000th career hit. On the day, he was 4-for-4 and he became the first player to reach the 3,000 hits milestone north of the border.
