Here’s the next card from my 14 card All-Star Stitches purchase from COMC last December. 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.
This is the 30th card toward this set.
The halfway point! Seems like the AL MVP from that year is a good option for that.
Card number: STIT-JDO
Player: Josh Donaldson
How I got the card: COMC in December (Black Friday)
Position: Third Baseman
How he made the roster: Donaldson was voted in as the AL starter by the fans.
This was his 2nd All-Star selection.
First half stat line: .293/21/60
All-Star game: Donaldson had what must be described as a boring All-Star game appearance. He walked both times he came up, in the first and then the third innings. He was stranded on first base both times. The most mention-worthy thing that happened was he had a throwing error in the 2nd inning that led to the NL’s first run and a tie game at the time.
