Jose Bautista’s infamous bat flip immortalized on Topps baseball card
Jose Bautista’s infamous bat flip is being commemorated on a baseball card.
Topps introduced its 2016 Series 1 card set Wednesday and the Blue Jays slugger’s official card showcases an image of the emphatic bat flip from Game 5 of the American League Division Series as its back drop.
The famous flip followed Bautista’s three-run home run off Texas Rangers reliever Sam Dyson in the bottom of the seventh, which gave Toronto a 6-3 lead after Texas had gone up 3-2 in the top of the inning. The Blue Jays won the best-of-five series 3-2.
Topps tweeted a photo of the card Tuesday, including Bautista’s handle in the tweet.
