Dr. Fauci first-pitch baseball card breaks sales record in 24 hours

Dr. Anthony Fauci first-pitch baseball card breaks Topps record for sales in just 24 hours
- Lorenzo Reyes, USA TODAY, July 27, 2020



It was on sale for only 24 hours, but it broke company records.

The Topps NOW limited edition baseball trading card featuring Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, set an all-time print record run for the franchise, selling 51,512 cards, the company said.

"Weíre excited by the popularity of Dr. Fauciís Topps NOW card," Emily Kless, Topps communications manager said in an email. "Topps prides itself on capturing the unique moments of the MLB season, one baseball card at a time, and Dr. Fauciís inclusion in this yearís Topps NOW cards is just one way in which we are highlighting the uniqueness of the 2020 season."

The company's previous record was for a card of Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr., which sold 19,396 copies and featured Guerrero's first hit.

I loved the Twitter quip posted in another thread: "The dude doesn't want people catching anything. Respect the consistency."


Of course, to be fair, Trump has his own card:

1. His career numbers on the back must be impressive.

A Hall of Famer whose career was ended by a bad manager. We've seen the story before.

3. Ha! I was wondering about his stats also.

A journeyman player who adds immense value to every team heís on. Unfortunately his doofus current manager is trying to sabotage his career.

4. This has to be burning Trump up.

He cannot stand people liking Fauci. Maybe he should have tried being good at something and telling the truth, works for Fauci.

5. Oooo! This is going to really chap Dumb Donny's fat ass!

Not only was he not asked to throw out a pitch, but now Fauci's getting all the love and publicity from it as well.

I am just picturing him seething with jealously and resentment right now as he continues on his downward slide toward oblivion.
