Dr. Anthony Fauci threw out the first pitch at Thursday's season opener in DC, which pitted the Washington Nationals against the New York Yankees. The pitch was such a curveball that it was impossible to catch - which is Fauci's motto about COVID - don't catch it!

But seriously, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases - and most brilliant member of the White House COVID task force, is a true Nats fan, often sporting a mask with Nats logo on it. In honor of his pitch, Topps put out a limited edition baseball card - which will only be on sale for 24 hours. Get yours here.

The Nats put out this statement:

"Dr. Fauci has been a true champion for our country during the COVID-19 pandemic and throughout his distinguished career, so it is only fitting that we honor him as we kick off the 2020 season and defend our World Series championship title."
