Miguel Cabrera 2014 Topps Series 1 Subset – ‘Super Veterans’
When I got back into the hobby of baseball card collecting in the summer of 2008, my goal was to pay homage to the players that helped build my love for the game and the hobby.
The first subset I put together that helped me with that cause was the ‘Super Veterans’ subset from the 1983 Topps baseball card set. This set is a beauty and it highlights the true legends of the game as their careers were winding down.
For the last few years, I have actively been begging Topps to bring this subset back and pay honor to today’s ‘Super Veterans’. And while I cannot confirm that they obliged my request, I was very excited to see that a 15-card ‘Super Veterans’ subset was part of the 2014 Topps Series 1 release.
I am building the set now. Here is the card of Miguel Cabrera:
The 2014 baseball season will be Cabrera’s 12th in the big leagues. At the age of just 30, he has already accomplished so much. Yet, his future still remains unbelievably bright.
Entering the season, Cabrera has a lifetime batting average of .321 with three batting titles to his credit. He has 1,995 career hits with 365 home runs. Cabrera also has driven in 1,260 runs during his playing days while scoring 1,064 runs.
It will be very interesting to see what the reigning 2-time AL MVP has in store for us as the 2014 baseball season unfolds.
