The Rally Squirrel now, finally, has its very own Topps baseball card

There have been many inspirational players in the 136-year history of the St. Louis Cardinals -- from Stan Musial to Bob Gibson to Yadier Molina. They've all been honored, be it with statues, Hall of Fame inductions or end-of-year accolades.
