2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #19 – Jackie Robinson, Brooklyn Dodgers
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 #19 – Jackie Robinson, Brooklyn Dodgers
The Career Day – April 23, 1954. On this day during the 1954 baseball season, Jackie Robinson stole the show with his bat and legs. Robinson went 3-for-5 for the Dodgers while hitting a double and two singles and scoring a run. He also stole three bases in the contest – all three coming in the same inning!! His final hit of the afternoon was a game-winning double in the 13th inning.
