2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Glove Stories’ Subset – Jayson Werth
Topps’ Gypsy Queen brand offers up some pretty sweet 10-card subsets that feature intense action.
One of my favorite parts about the GQ subsets is that they don’t simply throw in the top players – they truly find incredible images regardless of the player’s star power. What this does is introduce us to other talents that perform at high levels while also allowing for players that are not always in the spotlight a chance to shine for a bit.
The ‘Glove Stories’ set primarily features outfielders with 8 cards, and has 2 infielder cards as well.
This is the Jayson Werth card from the set:
There is something about the postseason defensive gem that truly makes moments withstand the test of time. There is the catch by Willie Mays, the dive by Derek Jeter, and this play by Jayson Werth that I don’t believe gets the credit it deserves.
In the 2012 NLDS, the Nationals faced the St. Louis Cardinals. Jayson Werth made this play on a would-be home run ball crushed by Daniel Descalso. The play saved the game and preserved the 2-1 win for the Nationals.
