Topps Now: 2016

This card took a long time to get here.  This celebrates Ortiz being named the starting Designated Hitter in this year's All Star Game.  It should have arrived a few weeks ago when I got the Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, and Jackie Bradley Jr. cards.  But it didn't.  This was Ortiz's final All Star Game and he walked in one of his two plate appearances.  I think he should have been allowed to play the whole game personally, but I can't claim to know what was discussed between him and the AL manager.  It may have been his idea to take only two at-bats.
