I bought a few packs of 2011 Bowman Draft at Target a few days ago and came across this Salvador Perez rookie card. While sitting at a red light, I started thumbing through some of the base cards and reading the “Up Close” portion of cards.
There are a few I want to point out at a later time, but this one made me smile.
Perez was the person responsible for breaking up then-Oakland A’s pitcher Guillermo Moscoso’s no-hitter on Sept. 7, 2011. Who cares, right?
I was at that game with my daughter. It was her first game, a journey that I detailed right here.
The fact that Perez’s gem-spoiling hit is chronicled on this card is pretty damn cool. I might just have to add this to my daughter’s scrapbook.
