Hats off to Madison Bumgarner and his SF teammates for a 2-0 win over Detroit last night. That the Tigers managed no runs against a pitcher who posted league-average peripherals (103 ERA+ in 2012) is an ill omen for a (normally) strong lineup that no doubt hopes to feel more comfortable back in Detroit.
HOLY CRACKER BARREL, MY EYES.
This triple-5 card is one of many 2011 Topps parallels. According to a Series 1 checklist, there are several Diamond versions (for their Diamond Anniversary), with some real stones thrown into the mix. Did anyone here wrap one up as a gift for that special collector in your life?
