There's already a Bartolo Colon home run Topps card, and you need it

At long last, we've reached the top of the mountain. Bartolo Colon hit his first career home run on Saturday night, a shot deep into the Petco Park night in the Mets' 6-3 win over the Padres.
Maybe you read something about it.

Maybe you heard the incredible Spanish-language radio call of the titanic blast.

Maybe you can't get enough of it -- and who could blame you?
Well, Topps has already commemorated this unforgettable moment with its own baseball card, as seen above. But don't wait around, it's only available for a limited time so act quickly if you want your own.
Topps has issued special cards commemorating key moments in recent history, such as one documenting how incredibleMike Trout is on a regular basis and Jose Bautista's bat flip heard 'round the world from the postseason last October.

For Colon, the 42-year-old who continues to be a hero on the mound, racing Billy Hamilton to first base or, finally, at the plate, this whole thing set "baseball Twitter" ablaze on Saturday evening. There's really nothing this man can't do. He's even impressed by flashing some solid Willie Mays impressions:

And, for good measure, he also showed that his impeccable control -- the kind that has allowed him to pitch well into his forties -- is also a weapon he can use to make incredible behind-the-back flips to first base.

Perhaps sadly, however, Bartolo may never appreciate the full impact of his feats on Twitter, as pointed out by's Anthony DiComo: 

No matter. Keep doing you, 'Tolo. We'll keep watching.
