2013 Topps Baseball Release Countdown #12

 I recently came across the obituary for former major leaguer Dave May, who died October 20th in Bear, Delaware at the age of 68.

May played for five major league teams over a career that spanned 12 seasons. The man whom the Brewers traded to Atlanta in order to bring Henry Aaron back to Milwaukee also happened to be the father of former Cub Derrick May (now the minor league hitting coordinator for the Cards), as well as Dave Jr-who's currently a scout for Toronto. 

May's best season in the majors was 1973-when he hit .303 in 156 games, along with 25 homers, 93 RBI, and a league leading 295 Total Bases. Topps captured the image of a slugger in this great shot.
