2013 Topps Update ‘Postseason Heroes’ Subset – David Wright
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 David Wright from the set:
At the conclusion of the 2013 baseball season, David Wright completed his tenth year in the big leagues. And during that time, Wright has played in the postseason just one time – 2006.
In 2006, Wright and his New York Mets teammates made it to the NLCS after defeating the Dodgers in the NLDS.
In 10 career postseason games, David Wright has compiled a .216 batting average with 8 hits, including 3 doubles and a home run. He has scored 3 runs while driving in six. And he has struck out 8 times while amassing an on-base percentage of just .310.
