Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was selected to start in the 2016 MLB All Star Game in San Diego. It is his second career All Star Selection.
The MLB All Star position players are selected by a fan balloting process. The Cuban born center fielder garnered the second most votes among outfielders.
Cespedes’ mighty first half was punctuated by countless dramatic and momentum changing hits such as Herculean homers reminiscent of his 2013 Home Run Derby performance at Citi Field.
His .302 average and 52 RBI lead the Mets and place him high on the league leader board. His .583 slugging percentage ranks him second in the National League.
Topps Now is recognizing every player selected to the All Star Game with a limited run card that is exclusively available for 24 hours.
The card is available for purchase HERE through the Topps Website. It ships free and discounts are given if bought at certain quantities.
While his strained quad may prevent Cespedes from participating in the game, it is a nice keepsake for any Mets fan to capture his special first half performance.
