Happy Baseball Birthday! The BOYD is back!

HappyBaseballBirthday! wishes go out to my favorite big league pitcher, Matthew Boyd

4️⃣8️⃣ Matthew has resigned with my beloved Detroit Tigers, after spending a year away in the San Francisco Giants organization and then pitching for the Seattle Mariners on September of 2022.

🐅⚾️ As Matthew is my favorite big league hurler, I certainly didn't stop collecting his baseball cards, and last month I hit the 2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ unique card mark on Trading Card Database.

🐅⚾️  A special shout out to my friend Michael Miller, for surprising me in January with the above autographed photo of Matthew...thanks, again, appreciate you thinking about me.

⚾️ I'm not sure what to expect when 2023 Topps is released in a couple of weeks, but I'm sure hoping that Matthew has a Mariners card, because I'm hoping that means he gets in Topps Update at the end of the year. 

Here's to hoping the winter wisks by fast, so we get the 2023 season off and running! 

Happy Birthday, Matthew!

Tigers Card Tuesday- Topps Living Set Cecil Fielder

Wednesday is Topps Living Set Day, and so I thought I'd make a quick post for Tigers Card Tuesday! on the last Detroit Tigers player to be added to the set.

Cecil Fielder, a.k.a. BIG Daddy! 

Cecil is the-

19th different Tigers player in the set, and my 19th Tigers Card.

The 14th different Tigers position player//batter in the set. 

The logo in the bottom left is the 3rd different Tigers logo to be used in the set.

As February arrives, we're just a few weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Tiger Town Spring Training in Lakeland, and I'm hoping we'll see another Detroit player in the Living Set.

Have a great week! 

Play BALL! 🐅⚾️
