Random Topps Card of the Day: 2006 Topps Updates & Highlights #UH326 Classic Duos Derek Jeter & Jose Reyes

We reset the Topps Card Randomizer to come up with seven new cards to present for this week. Introducing the Random Topps Card of the Day for Monday, June 21, 2010:

  • Official Card Set Name and Card Number: 2006 Topps Updates & Highlights #UH326.
  • Player Name, position, team: Derek Jeter, shortstop, New York Yankees; Jose Reyes, shortstop, New York Mets.
  • Special: Classic Duos
  • Any special information about this specific card: One of the more interesting subsets Topps brought back in the 2000's was the multi-player subset. Whether the players depicted were teammates, rivals, siblings, or managers, there was always some kind of effort to link the players on the card together. The above effort brought together the All-Star shortstops from New York, making NY, according to Topps, a "cradle of shortstops." Both were named to their respective All-Star Teams for the 2006 game, however, Reyes was injured. So this picture had to have taken place during one of the three Subway Series games played at Shea in May, 2006. Combined, you're looking at 8 all-star appearances, 3 Gold Gloves, two Silver Sluggers, and two of the best shortstops playing in the majors today.
  • Lo-Hi Beckett value: $0.30-$0.75.
Tomorrow's card will be: 2000 Topps Traded & Rookies #T26. Post will arrive at 1:00 PM CST. See you then.
