I got 13 cards toward this set as part of the COMC Black Friday set. Actually, I bought 16, but I realized too late that I’d double dipped for 3 cards!
As a reminder, I went to the All-Star game and Home Run Derby in Cincinnati. So I’m collecting this All-Star Stitches set! These cards that have swatches from the Monday practice festivities.
The Cuban Missile is the 25th card toward this set. And my first Redleg!
Card number: STIT-AC
Player: Aroldis Chapman
How I got the card: COMC in December (Black Friday)
How he made the roster: Chapman was voted in as one of the 3 relievers on the player ballot.
This was his 4th All-Star selection.
First half stat line: 3-3/1.69/65, 18 SV
All-Star game: Chapman came into the top of the 9th and didn’t just keep the NL deficit at bay – he electrified the home crowd! Chapman struck out all 3 batters he faced, on 14 pitches. It was probably my favorite moment of the game.
