Ruggero Forever! Baseball is a marvelllous sport, if we were in the US some of our champions would be absolute myths, highly sought after even in stickers. In Italy it is different, but a champion is a champion and we are happy to make the second solidarity card dedicated to Baseball. After Alberto “Toro” Rinaldi, the Celebrative Sticker # 24 is the symbol of Nettuno and the Italian national team, Ruggero Bagialemani.
The two champions also have in common the jersey number, the number 20, which no one else will be able to wear because their respective clubs, Fortitudo for Toro and Nettuno for Ruggero have withdrawn it. Not only that, Ruggero declared that the choice of that number is precisely to pay tribute to the great Rinaldi. Now the two champions not only share the jersey number, but both be a Celebrative Sticker!
Not just Nettuno! Ruggero Bagialemani is also a record man for the Italian national team, he has participated in 3 Olympics and 7 world championships. The solidarity card wants to celebrate both his long career in the club of the city near Rome, but also the charm of this incredible sport. For this reason, the printing is 108 copies, like the seams on a baseball. A number that will also remain in the future solidarity cards we will make for baseball, after all, as they say, there is no 2 without 3.
Fundamental partner to create this new solidarity card, was Il Bar del Baseball, the most important reality for all fans in Italy. While waiting for the dream of a Baseball Museum in Nettuno to become a reality, a place to visit, the work they carry out is commendable.
Baseball and the city of Nettuno are one, for the first time our solidarity card has the honor (but also the burden) of being sponsored by a public institution. Thanks to the Municipality and also to the Pro Loco di Nettuno for having joined and supported our initiative.
