Matt Holliday 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 Matt Holliday:
Matt Holliday entered his 11th big league season in 2014.
Upon entering the 2014 season, Holliday was a 6-time All-Star and a winner of 4 Silver Slugger Awards.
He is closing in on several offensive milestones and with health on his side, he should have no problem reaching 2,000 hits, 400 doubles, and 300 home runs. And sometime during the 2014 season he will eclipse both 1,000 runs scored and 1,000 RBI.
