LAKELAND, Fla., Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Trading card company Topps unveiled the world's largest baseball card, measuring 60 feet by 90 feet, in a Florida city.

Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder, who is pictured on the card, attended the unveiling ceremony Tuesday in Lakeland, where the Tigers have held their spring training for the past 77 seasons, WFLA-TV, Tampa, Fla., reported Wednesday.

"You know obviously Detroit has a good relationship here cause you know their spring training's been here forever, and also the fans love Detroit, so it's a mutual love I think," Fielder said.
