Dr. Fauci Baseball Card Sets Records

 

So after throwing a wild first pitch to start the 2020 MLB season, Dr. Anthony Fauci got his own limited edition baseball card made. Turns out, people couldn’t buy them fast enough.

The limited-edition baseball card was only up for sale for 24 hours, but it set “an all-time high print run record,” according to Topps. Some 51,512 cards were sold for $9.99 each. The previous top-selling card featured Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s first hit, and only 19,396 of those were sold.

Fauci’s card, showing him throwing out a wild first pitch at Thursday’s MLB game between the Washington Nationals and the New York Yankees, describes “a strong effort” that “signaled the official start of the 2020 MLB season.” “I feel a little embarrassed and humbled,” he said. “I hope that Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle are not looking up at me saying, ‘What the heck is going on here?'”
