2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #14 – Dustin Pedroia, Boston Red Sox

2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #14 – Dustin Pedroia, Boston Red Sox

I am working on this set because I find it to be the most appealing of the subsets issued by Topps in 2012.

The cards feature bold colors, great images, and a unique horizontal design.

I especially like the ‘Career Day’ theme as it pays homage to some of the greatest individual performances of baseball’s elite players.

Card #14 – Dustin Pedroia, Boston Red Sox


The Career Day – June 24, 2010.  On this day in 2010, Dustin Pedroia matched a feat that had been only accomplished one other time in major league baseball history; Jimmie Foxx in 1919.  Pedroia went 5-for-5 with three home runs, a double, a single, and a walk as his team battled the Colorado Rockies during inter-league play.  His third home run came in the 10th inning of the game, and gave the Sox the win with his 5th RBI of the game.

Progress – 14/25

Bob Uecker 2001 Topps Archives – FAIL!!!

Bob Uecker 2001 Topps Archives – FAIL!!!

You all know that I love this set.

But this card is horrible.  It actually looks like a downgrade in this collector’s eyes.

I guess that it was bound to happen, right??  I mean, Topps was so ‘on’ with this set – great design, excellent photo choices, and well though out player choices.

This one must have snuck by the editor during a very late  night…

Sorry, Mr. Uecker.

Will these be the last two videos I feature of former Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player Dustin Pedroia???  I don’t know….

In the first video, we get a ‘green’ Dustin acting like a robot in this pre-video game personality commercial:

And then things get a little more lively when the newest member of the Hall of Fame, Mr. Jim Rice, gets involved….

Celebrity First Pitch – Vince Vaughn

Loyal Chicago Cubs fan and actor Vince Vaughn knows how to bring the heat.  In fact he’s so disappointed in his first attempt he demands a ‘Re-do’ and still barely makes it to the plate.

Hey Vince, stick to your day job!!!
