Baseball Card Sets (By Season)
2013 Baseball Cards
- Seeing Red: Boston’s worst-to-first Red Sox conquer St. Louis’ Redbirds in the World Series
- Comebacks: Pittsburgh and Kansas City are winners again; Chris Davis whacks 53 HR
- Roar: Tigers win AL Central with repeat MVP Cabrera, Cy Young Scherzer
Sensational rookies Yasiel Puig, Jose Fernandez and Wil Myers added a fresh look to a season. So did the pennant bid by the Pirates – the Pirates! – and Kansas City’s first winning season in a decade. Resurgent Cleveland nearly won the AL Central. But a dose of déjà vu spiced this season with excitement.
Repeat AL MVP Miguel Cabrera (.348-44-137) made a run at a second straight Triple Crown. Repeat AL MVP runner-up Mike Trout, in only his second season, became the first in AL history to hit 25 HR (27), steal 30 bases (33) and draw 100 walks (110) in a season. He also hit .323 and had 97 RBIs. Repeat NL Cy Young Clayton Kershaw had the majors’ best ERA (1.83) and the NL’s most strikeouts (232) in a year with a dozen 200-K pitchers.
In a season of feel-good stories by overachievers, the most remarkable of all is how the Boston Red Sox remade its dysfunctional 2012 team and rose from worst in the AL East to the best record in baseball, then Boston’s third World Championship in the last decade.
No doubt you’ll also enjoy the NL MVP-caliber seasons by Pittsburgh’s slick Andrew McCutchen (the winner), Arizona’s slugging Paul Goldschmidt (the runner-up) St. Louis’ superstar Yadier Molina.
