2011 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Wall Climbers’ Subset – David DeJesus

2011 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Wall Climbers’ Subset – David DeJesus

The 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Wall Climbers’ set is a piece of art. The cards feature stunning graphics with images that capture some of baseball’s greatest action – the art of leaping into the air and bringing back would be home run balls.

The set offers just 10 cards, but each one is an amazing look at one of baseball’s great highlights.

This is the card of David DeJesus from the set:

DAVID DEJESUS

 

DeJesus is a 12-year MLB veteran that continues to make plays in the outfield that are on par with much more athletic and younger outfielders.

He has a career fielding percentage of .992 and has made just 23 errors in 2,814 chances.

Did You Know…

The only pitcher in the 1980’s to post a season with 20 or more losses in a singles season was Brian Kingman.  Kingman pitched for the Oakland A’s in 1980 and finished the campaign with a 8-20 record.

Did You Know…

Since the 1920’s, the only decade that did not produce a player with 50 homers in a season was the 1980s.  Led by Mark McGwire’s four consecutive 50-homer seasons from 1996 to 1999, the 1990s feature the most, with seven players combining for 12 seasons of 50+ homers.

My take – I would love to get a similar stat for 50+ steal seasons.
