Card of the Day: 2012 Topps Tier One Buster Posey Auto

Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants on their second World Series title in four years. Usually during a big event I like to showcase a card of the day featuring a player on that team and Buster Posey is a big part of that San Francisco Giants run to the World Series.

I heard on the radio today people already comparing him to Derek Jeter. Two titles in their first three years of playing the game and a superstar in the making. Buster Posey could be that type of player. A career franchise player who is well respected inside and outside the clubhouse. I love seeing players like that in the game, so I’m hoping he lives up to those expectations. That two run homer to put the Giants up one in the sixth inning last night was pretty clutch too.

I chose this card for a number of reasons, but mainly because of its beauty. I wasn’t a fan of the Bowman design the year he had his Bowman Chrome autograph, so that was immediately out the door for me. But 2012 Topps Tier One baseball is a beauty of a product and this card is one of the nicest ones out there for Buster. A well placed photo, a great background, and a HUGE place to slap that autograph, on card. I’d be happy pulling a beauty like that any day.

So congrats again to Buster Posey and the rest of the San Francisco Giants. What a great run you guys had.
