2010 Topps Series 1:

  1. #14 Ted Lilly
  2. #9 Tim Lincecum (Cy Young Award)
  3. #298 Baltimore Orioles (Team Card)
  4. #311 Jose Valverde

Although they staffed different positions, Carter and Wright have combined supreme defense with hitting prowess.  Gary won three straight NL Gold Glove Awards behind the plate beginning in 1980, while Wright took the honors at the hot corner in 2007 and ’08.  Both have taken multiple NL Silver Slugger accolades, too — Carter five times and Wright twice.

While he has a career batting average of .305, Wright has been in a slump of late, batting only .154 in his last 10 games.  His batting average on the season dropped to .244.
