2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #17 – Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds
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 #17 – Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds
The Career Day – May 7, 2008. On this day, Joey Votto and his Reds teammates beat the Cubs 9-0. In the game, Votto became the first first-baseman in baseball history to it three home runs and steal a base in the same contest. For the day, Votto was 3-for-4 with three home runs, 4 RBI, and a stolen base. He was the first Reds rookie and third Canadian-born player to hit three home runs in a single contest.
