This is the last one of these for a while. But it’s the favorite one I bought on the COMC Black Friday sale.
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 37th card toward this set.
Card number: STIT-TF
Player: Rod Frazier
How I got the card: COMC in December (Black Friday)
Position: Third Base
How he made the roster: Frazier was voted in by the fans to start at third in front of hometown Cincinnati.
This was his 2nd All-Star selection.
First half stat line: .284/25/57, .585 SLG
Home Run Derby: Frazier was the 2-seed in the derby for the 25 homers he had as of July 7th. In what was probably the coolest sporting event I’ve personally been to, he electrified the hometown crowd and took home the victory.
He took out 2-time champion Prince Fielder, 14-13, in the first round.
All-Star game: 0-3. Unfortunately, Frazier couldn’t bring the hometown fans to their feet two days a row. He grounded out three times.
