2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Collisions At The Plate’ Subset – Gary Carter
The theme of ‘Collision At The Plate’ is one that I think all baseball fans could get excited about. The play in which two players collide with completely opposite goals: 1 putting their body on the line in an effort to score a run for their team. 1 putting every ounce of energy, strength, and will into defending their plate.
Oh yes, the ‘Collision At The Plate’ is the perfect place for baseball drama to be born. And as soon as I saw that the 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen set was going to include a subset of cards with the title of ‘Collisions At The Plate’, I knew I would be going after it.
This is the Gary Carter card from the set:
Gary Carter was a very solid defender who won three Gold Glove Awards during his major league career. He did so, while playing behind one of the greatest defensive catchers in the history of the sport, Johnny Bench,
Carter caught 2056 games during his career. He compiled a fielding percentage of .991 during that time and committed just 121 errors in 19 seasons.
