2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Collisions At The Plate’ Subset – Yadier Molina
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 Yadier Molina card from the set:
Yadier Molina is commonly tagged as the most well-rounded catcher in the game. Both his offense and defense are elite, and he is a perennial MVP candidate for the St. Louis Cardinals.
Entering the 2013 baseball season, Molina has won five straight Gold Glove awards for his defensive excellence at catcher. He has a career fielding percentage of .994 over ten seasons, and he has made just 50 errors in 9,634 innings of work.
Molina has thrown out 44% of the runners that try to run against him!!
