Next up for the All-Star Stitches set – another 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 34th card toward this set.
Card number: STIT-RM
Player: Russell Martin
How I got the card: COMC in December (Black Friday)
How he made the roster: Martin was selected by Ned Yost as the 3rd catcher for the AL squad.
This was his 4th All-Star selection.
First half stat line: .251/12/41
All-Star game: Martin pinch hit for Steven Vogt in the top of the 8th. He struck out swinging against his former battery mate, Mark Melancon. He caught the last 2 innings and was behind the plate when the AL clinched another win in this series.
