Nelson Cruz, 2014 Topps #453
With his fifth-inning solo shot off of Brandon McCarthy tonight, Nelson Cruz is the sixth player in Orioles history to hit 40 home runs in one season. He follows in the footsteps of Chris Davis, Rafael Palmeiro, Brady Anderson, Frank Robinson, and Jim Gentile. 107 RBI, 138 OPS+ (entering tonight's game). That, my friends, is eight million dollars well spent.
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.
