Jose Bautista’s bat-flip blast gets fittingly epic Topps card treatment
Remember Jose Bautista’s epic bat flip in Game 5 of the ALDS this past October? Of course you do.
The moment was one of the most iconic scenes of a dramatic postseason, and so far the league’s Vine of the blast has been watched more than 24 MILLION times.
Very aware of the lasting power of Joey Bats’ mammoth shot, Topps chose it as the backdrop for his official card. Series 1 of Topps’ MLB set comes out today, by the way:

So to recap, Bautista gets his own amazing card right after it was announced that Mike Trout’s home-run stealing heroics landed him the No. 1 card in the set.
Happy card-hunting, collectors!
