Aubrey Huff, 2009 Topps Black #45
Congratulations to Aubrey Huff and the rest of the 2012 World Series champion San Francisco Giants, who swept the Detroit Tigers in four games. Huff didn't make a strong contribution to this year's Giants club, batting .192 in 52 regular season games with a home run and 7 RBI. He missed time with injuries, and was supplanted at first base by prospect Brandon Belt. However, San Francisco kept the 35-year-old on their 25-man roster throughout the postseason and he appeared in 10 of their 16 games as a pinch hitter. Unfortunately, Aubrey went 1-for-9 with a walk. That might be a wrap for the Huffster's Giants career, but he got two rings out of the deal.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
