2013 Topps Update ‘Postseason Heroes’ Subset – Bret Saberhagen

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 Renteria, and Pablo Sandoval but none of these guys made the checklist.

That does leave room for some nice surprises…

This is the card of Bret Saberhagen from the set:

Bret Saberhagen played in the major leagues for 16 seasons.  He played for four teams during that span, and had his greatest postseason success during his time with the Kansas City Royals.

In the 1985 World Series, Saberhagen was the MVP.  He started two games for the Royals – winning and going the distance in both.  He pitched 18 innings, allowing just 1 run while striking out 10 batters and walking just one.
