Dr. Fauci Baseball Card Becomes Topps' #1 Bestseller of All Time


Dr. Anthony Fauci's errant attempt at a first pitch before the Washington Nationals' season opener against the New York Yankees last week wasn't exactly, shall we say, a home run. But the infectious disease expert's new baseball trading card is knocking it out of the park. The sports blog Yardbarker reports that Fauci's trading card, which was available for just 24 hours, instantly became the bestselling card in Topps history. According to the Action Network's Darren Rovell, Fauci's card sold 51,512 copies. The #2-selling card --commemorating Vlad Guerrero Jr.'s first career hit with the Toronto Blue Jays--doesn't even come close to that tally with a paltry 19,396 copies sold. And some guy named Babe Ruth is tied for the #3 seller.
