2013 Topps Update ‘Postseason Heroes’ Subset – Deion Sanders
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 Deion Sanders from the set:
It was kind of odd to find Deion in this set – especially since he never won a World Series.
But, if you look at the performance he put on in the 1992 Fall Classic as a member of the Atlanta Braves, you will quickly see why he was included.
Facing the Blue Jays, Deion went off – In 4 games he went 8-for-165 with two doubles and six singles. He stole five bases and scored four runs while amassing a batting average of .533 and an on-base percentage of .588.
