Tigers Card Tuesday- More Topps NOW Tigers

My last post for Tigers Card Tuesday was for the first big league hit for Tigers rookie Kody Clemens.

Since then we've been treated to more Tigers cards from the Topps NOW brand, including young Clemens first big league home run last Saturday night in Detroit's 6-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

The Tigers had an off day on Monday, and are starting a 2 game series in San Francisco tonight...maybe a splash down HR from a lefty batter like Clemens,  maybe Hittin' Harold Castro, or, heck, Riley Greene.

Have a terrific week, appreciate you stopping by to read the blog.

Blog Bat Around- National Sunglasses Day

Today is National Sunglasses, Day.

🕶 I don't remember this being a thing, but Marvel reminded me this morning when I opened up the card app.

🕶 Our friend Collecting Cutch posted about it as well, showing off some cool cards of his main PC guy, Andrew McCutchen, and suggesting this would be a cool Blog Bat Around idea, and, if course, I had to get a post up.

🕶 Cutch also asked if we had any cool baseball cards featuring players wearing shades, and, of course, my mind went straight to my main PC pitcher, Matthew Boyd.

           2019 Topps Living Set #129,                             Matthew Boyd

🕶 I've certainly worn my share of cool sunglasses in my day, but these days all I have are the kind that clip on to my every day glasses.

🕶 It's just 3 months and 3 days until October 1st, when Cutch hosts his annual Save Second Base Blog event to help raise awareness of Breast Cancer. 🎀 

Let's see those sunglasses baseball cards, and, as always, remember to Play BALL! ⚾️

Tigers Card Tuesday- 2022 Topps NOW Kody Clemens

This card isn't in my collection yey, because it's only been out for a few hours.

Kody Clemens, the Detroit Tigers 3rd round pick in 2018 out of the University of Texas, collected his first big league hit last night against the Chicago White Sox at Comerica Park. 

Kody added another base knock and a walk, scoring two runs,in the Tigers loss to the ChiSox. 

It took the kid from Houston, Texas 10 games and 17 at bats before collecting his first career base knock, but Tigers fans were certainly cheering for him in every plate appearance, and those in attendance last night can say they saw history. 

Kody's "Call Up" ToppsNOW card is available until 24 hours after its release this afternoon, and you can purchase the card on Topps.com. 

⚾️ Or, you can save a few dollars by hitting up eBay, (my choice) it'll just take about a month to get to yall.
Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by to read my blog, it's much appreciated. 

It's also available on the Topps BUNT App.

Congratulations, Kody, and, keep swinging and playing hard in that Olde English D. 

Play BALL! 🐯⚾️
