McCutchen Mailday #227: Smooth As Silk

The latest addition to my Cutch purchases this year brings me this smooth as silk acquisition

Now my run of Cutch Silk Collections contains cards from 2014 (seen here), 2013, 2012, and 2011.

  I'm not sure if Cutch had Silk cards in 2010 or 2009, but if he did I will have to try to track them down too.

McCutchen Mailday #226: Feeling Blue (not really)

I've been buying a lot of Christmas presents between last night and this morning. My wallet and bank account have taken a pounding.

So why not show off something I got for myself?  My Cutch additions will be slowing down over the next few weeks as I begin to prepare for Christmas. I still have close to a dozen left that I've purchased this year, but haven't gotten around to show off yet.

Gobble Gobble!!!!

With all the attention I have been putting towards my Andrew McCutchen PC this year, I have completely ignored adding cards to my Jason Bay PC.  This year has brought me only 2 new Jason Bay cards, but one of them was a big one containing future Hall of Famer, Miguel Cabrera.

As is customary for my blog, I started looking around for some new Turkey themed cards to show off on Thanksgiving around September. 

This Turkey Red Silk Collection of the former Pirates outfielder struck my fancy for 99 cents

I hope everyone has a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving

McCutchen Mailday #225: Steel Patch!!!!

This one made me happy when I finally added it the first time.

It makes me happier to add a rarer version.  The patches for Alvarez and Cole are super nice!  Cutch has just a bit of yellow and black patch on his plain gray swatch.

I've slowed down buying cards for myself as the year wraps up, but I would say that I accomplished quite a bit considering that I only want to add 100 new Cutch cards to the PC this year.

McCutchen Mailday #224: The Letter C


I just couldn't resist.
I'm getting dangerously close to spelling out McCutchen using letters from various releases.

McCutchen Mailday #223: Pure Badass Patch

I've added a few triple threads Cutch cards to the collection this year, but this is the first that features 3 players who played in the Post Season this year for multiple teams.

Joey Bats hit a mammoth and memorable HomeRun against the Rangers to send Toronto to the Championship Series.  As many of you may know, I am a huge Jose Bautista fan, but am starting to sell off my Joey Bats collection including the 1/1 bat knob.

Cutch will continue to be my main focus on my PC.

Cespedes will be a free agent this year and it should be interesting to see where he ends up.  Over the past two years he has played on 4 teams.  I actually like New York's chances of resigning him.

I previously showed off this card almost a year ago to the day, but have now added a more rare version of it as my Cutch PC this year added over 200 new cards to the collection

McCutchen Mailday #220-222: A Trio of Relics invades the PTR

The Steelers have a bye week so no football cards today.  Instead, I will just continue to show off more Cutch cards that I have added to the PC this year.

A trio of relics.
I've shown off a few plain color relics of Cutch this year
This latest trio includes a 2015 Topps Heritage Clubhouse Collection, a 2014 Topps Tribute, and a 2013 Bowman Platinum Cutting Edge Relics

Nothing too fancy.  Just a smorgasbord of random jersey colors on some nice looking cardboard.
