Giancarlo Stanton 2012 Topps Series 2 – Sabermetrics Stats Short Print
Seeing that Topps’ Series 2 set included ‘extra’ cards in the release from the Series 1 set got me excited at the opportunity to add another card of Giancarlo Stanton to my rainbow of cards from the Series 1 release.
This time around, the cards are tagged as ‘Sabermetrics Stats’ cards, each one being short-printed and inserted into Series 2 packs.
And as the name of the card states, the cards offer different stats on the back, Sabermetrics style numbers.
Let me show you the card!
Front – same exact front as Giancarlo’s base card
Back – here is the big change! No batting avergae, runs scored, or home runs. There are Sabermetrics stats only!
Kind of a neat idea from Topps, especially with all of the chatter using these stats on MLB Network.
A great addition to my growing rainbow! I’ll have to show it off again soon…
