2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-10 – Armando Galarraga, Detroit Tigers
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#10 – Armando Galarraga, Detroit Tigers
The Dominant Day – June 2, 2010. We all vividly remember this day. Headed into the ninth inning, and the final out of the game, Armando Galarraga was pitching a perfect game against the Cleveland Indians. Unfortunately, a missed call by the umpire cost Galarraga the game, and a chance to make history. Still, he threw a complete game, allowed just one hit, and struck out three.
Progress – 10/15
