2013 Topps Update ‘Postseason Heroes’ Subset – David Freese
The 2013 Topps Update baseball card set includes a subset tagged as ‘Postseason Heroes. And with that theme, you would expect to find cards of modern players like Albert Pujols, Edgar Rentaria, and Pablo Sandoval but none of these guys made the checklist.
That does leave room for some nice surprises…
This is the card of David Freese from the set:
David Freese put the St. Louis Cardinals franchise on his back during the 2011 World Series.
Playing for his hometown team, Freese hit .348 in seven games as he connected for 8 hits in 23 at-bats. Of his 8 hits, Freese amassed 3 doubles, a triple, and a home run. He also drove in 7 runs and scored 4 times.
In the games that mattered the most, Games 6 & 7 (both wins for STL), Freese went 2-for-5 and 1-for-2 taking his team to two wins and the World Series title.
Freese was named the 2011 World Series MVP for his solid performance in the Fall Classic.
