Teddy Kremer, a one-time batboy for the Cincinnati Reds, got the Major League treatment from Topps, immortalizing him on a trading card in their updated set released earlier this month. Chances are, unless you live around Cincinnati, you’re probably not familiar with Kremer.
The 30-year-old with Down syndrome served briefly as a batboy for the Reds. He was a hit in the Reds’ clubhouse and his story was featured on E:60 as well as ABC World News Tonight.
Now he has his own Topps card alongside former Reds’ manager Dusty Baker, which is pretty cool — even for cynics.
Try to find some time to read the background. It’s a nice story, nothing more, nothing less.
And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t love to have their own official Topps card? One with the 1987 wood paneling would be incredible.
