1960 Topps Style 2013 World Series Game 1

World Series cards began appearing in Topps sets in 1960. They continued to run into the '80s skipping over only a few years, 1966-67 and 1979-80. This card was made in the style of the 1960 Topps World Series cards.

There were a few options on who could have appeared on the Game 1 card. Beltran robbing Ortiz's grand slam, the reversed call at second or the many fielding miscues of the Cardinals to start the game. But I had to give the nod to Jon Lester. He pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings and struck out 8 to get the win in Game 1.
