2012 Topps ‘Mound Dominance’ Subset – Card #MD-13 – Jon Lester, Boston Red Sox
I really like the ‘Mound Dominance’ subset that Topps included in their 2012 base set. The cards are sharp, the graphics are solid, and I am a sucker for cards that pay homage to a historic baseball event.
The ‘Mound Dominance’ set recalls 15 amazing pitching performances in major league history.
This is card#13 – Jon Lester, Boston Red Sox
The Dominant Day – May 19, 2008. Jon Lester and his Boston Red Sox teammates faced the Kansas City Royals on this date, and Lester was in control from the start. Throwing his first complete game of the 2008 baseball season, Lester no-hit the Royals and allowed just two walks in the win. He struck out nine batters in the game and threw 130 pitches. It was the first Red Sox no-hitter in 52 years.
Progress – 13/15
