HAPPY Tigers Card Tuesday!
On Sunday, August 22, 2021, Miguel Cabrera hit his 500th Career Home Run, the 28th player in the history of the big leagues to join the exclusive club of power hitters.
🐯⚾️ Cabrera is the first player to hit his 500th HR in a Tigers uniform, and the opposite field shot was his 362nd as a Tigers player, trailing the 373 dingers hit by Norm Cash, and the 399 HRs hit by HOFer Al Kaline.
👉As of today, Miggy now sits at 502 career HRS, 364 as a Detroit Tiger.
5️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ Over the weekend my friend Michael, from our Detroit Tigers Collector's Facebook group, brought over the package of Topps NOW cards that he ordered.
👉 Of the 10 he ordered, I only wanted two of the special cards, and both are now secure in my collection of Miggy's cards.
I must say, Topps did a tremendous job on this card, using the picture of Miggy coming out of the Tigers dugout in Toronto to acknowledge the crowd that was applauding the history achievement of one of the greatest players of my lifetime.
📌 Topps NOW cards aren't for everyone, and I don't always get the cards, however, for an occasion like this, being a life-long Detroit fan, it was a must have card.
📬 I have a couple more Miggy cards coming in the mail soon, and it'll certainly find their way into another TCT post.
Have a great day, and, as always, remember, PLAY BALL! ⚾️
