Epic Moments in Pirates Cardboard History: The Catch

The Pirates have been playing much better baseball since Clint Hurdle took over as the team's manager in 2011.  He vowed to bring winning back to Pittsburgh when he took over and in a very short time he has transformed a team that lost 105 games in 2010 to a team that has a winning record since Hurdle took over.  He has gotten the best of his players to perform at levels beyond what is expected of them.

One moment that defined that level of performance occurred on September 27th 2012 when Travis Snider climbed the Citifield wall in New York as if he was Spider-Man to rob Mike Baxter of the Mets from a HomeRun.

That moment was captured on 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen Glove Stories.

I think I will try to make Epic Moments in Pirates Cardboard History a monthly feature as long as I have the cards for it.
