2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Collisions At The Plate’ Subset – Salvador Perez

2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Collisions At The Plate’ Subset – Salvador Perez

The theme of ‘Collision At The Plate’ is one that I think all baseball fans could get excited about. The play in which two players collide with completely opposite goals: 1 putting their body on the line in an effort to score a run for their team. 1 putting every ounce of energy, strength, and will into defending their plate.

Oh yes, the ‘Collision At The Plate’ is the perfect place for baseball drama to be born. And as soon as I saw that the 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen set was going to include a subset of cards with the title of ‘Collisions At The Plate’, I knew I would be going after it.

This is the Salvador Perez card from the set:



Perez has only been in the major leagues for three seasons, but he has started to establish himself as a solid catcher.  In his first full-time season in 2013, Perez was an All-Star.

He has a career fielding percentage of .991 and is catching just a tad more than 25% of the players trying to steal bases against him.
