The Jason Varitek Quest for 1,000: #939

Hey, Jason Varitek has new cards in a few non-hit sets this year.  Here he is in 2019 Topps Archives Snapshots in an insert set.  You may be forgiven for thinking this was a Jon Lester card as he takes up a little more of the shot than Varitek, but this card celebrates Varitek catching the fourth no-hitter of his career, Lester's in 2008 against the Royals.  That would be a record.  Previously, he caught no-hitters by Hideo Nomo (2001, Orioles), Derek Lowe (2002, Devil Rays) and Clay Buchholz (2007, Orioles).
