Wouldn’t it be exciting to be a baseball player, whose face would be among the best in a pack of baseball cards?
That’s what happened to Steve Winfree, when he found his own card when he opened up a recent pack of Topps cards that his wife, Heather, gave him. The kicker: he’s not a professional baseball player.
As he flipped through with excitement he noticed something familiar about the last card. It was Steve. As he turned it over and read his back-description he was given exciting, tear-jerking news.
Steve, who had started dialysis for a kidney disease in November and was in need of a transplant, learned that his wife was a match in clever dialogue on the back of the card.
Heather uploaded the video to YouTube while her husband took to Twitter to let his excitement out. Warning: tears will fall after watching the video!
MLB.com’s Michael Winfree posted the information Friday afternoon.
