2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-5 – Dennis Eckersley, Oakland Athletics
I really like the ‘Mound Dominance’ subset that Topps included in their 2012 base set. The cards are sharp, the graphics are solid, and I am a sucker for cards that pay homage to a historic baseball event.
The ‘Mound Dominance’ set recalls 15 amazing pitching performances in major league history.
This is card#5 – Dennis Eckersley, Oakland Athletics
The dominant day – October 28, 1989. This baseball card celebrates Dennis Eckerlsey’s dominant performance in Game 4 of the 1989 World Series. The game was the clinching game for the championship and it only took four pitches from ‘Eck’ to seal the win and the championship for the Oakland Athletics. He recorded an out via bunt, a flyball out, and an infield ground-out.
Progress – 5/15
