Daniel Nava’s playoff beard… on a baseball card!

One person recently opened a pack of 2014 Allen & Ginter from Topps baseball and pulled a card of Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava that includes real strands of hair from the playoff beard he grew during Boston’s 2013 World Series championship run.

The card pulled is serial numbered 8/25, which means 25 of these Nava beard cards can be found in this year’s Allen & Ginter set.

Dear Topps,

Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

Sincerely,

Sports Card Collectors

Not the first player I'd clone, but it'd still improve the Mets' outfield, so I'm up for it.

They had planned 25 cards with ARod's mane, but nixed it for obvious reasons.
