P-Town Tom is once again hosting his favorite card of the year contest, and I automatically thought about my 2018 Topps Update Series #139 of BIG John Hicks!
Why is this my favorite card of 2018?
Because it took 2 years and every Topps baseball card issue for BIG John to finally get his first Tigers card!
Another terrific thing about the card is that instead of a picture of BIG John batting, or playing 1st Base, Topps used a great in action photo of him wearing the tools of ignorance.
I know that Julie from the blog A Cracked Bat, a fan of a catcher in his gear, loved this card of the Goochland, Virginia native as well.
BIG John had his best season in the big leagues, playing in a career high 81 games before a groin injury ended his season in August.
What's your favorite baseball card from the past year?
If you have one, get over to the contest and submit your entry...the deadline is January 7th.
Play Ball! ⚾
