McCutchen Mailday #64: Its Black and White!!!

Here's another card I've had for a few months that I just haven't gotten around to showcase. My goal to add 100 new Andrew McCutchen cards to my PC by year's end looks like it may be doubled. I am currently on pace for 170 new Andrew McCutchens as of writing this in mid April. (It will probably be on pace to be posted in May sometime)

The latest Cutch ran me $15 delivered and is a short print black and white from 2015 Donruss.

McCutchen Mailday #63: 2014 Topps Mini 4/5

In my ongoing pursuit to add 100 new Andrew McCutchen cards to my PC, I came across this very low numbered parallel from 2014 Topps Mini. The card is numbered 4/5 and ran me $30. Its more than I would have liked to pay, but I am trying to complete the rainbow and with such low numbering I knew I probably wouldn't see another for some time.

Cutch has finally started to heat up and recently won CoPlayer of the Week award with Ryan Braun for his performance last week.

McCutchen Mailday #62: Case hit photo variant!!!

Here's a card I purchased at the end of March for $35 in my pursuit to add 100 new Andrew McCutchen cards to my PC this year. I'm currently on pace for close to 150 new Cutch cards at the current pace I am at.

This 2015 Topps Opening Day photo variant features Cutch wearing the Bucs alternate black uniform in PNC Park. The card is one of the case hit photo variants and prices on these are heading north of $50 in recent weeks.

It's not cardboard, but needs to be highlighted

So everyone knows that I'm a Charlie Morton supercollector...well my legacy continues as I have added a Charlie Morton bat to the collection.

This is my first Morton game used bat and my 18th game used Pirates bat.

Charlie makes his 2015 debut today as the Bucs hope to extend their winning streak to 4 games.

He was a Pirate??? Moises Alou autograph edition

When people think of Moises Alou, they probably remember him for his performance on those early 90s Expos teams. He went on to have a Hall of Very Good career ( .303 batting average, 2134 hits, 332 HomeRuns, .885OPS) He appeared in 6 All-Star Games and won 2 Silver Sluggers.

Very few people will remember him for his 2 game, 5 plate appearances Pirates career.  However, thanks to 2015 Bowman, I now have a certified autograph showcasing his early roots in Pittsburgh.

Seeing Red: Jamo Red Refractor /25

My scanner is still not working properly, so I'm forced to update via my phone and screenshots of eBay items I've won. Below is an item I won a few months ago for under $5 of a top pitching prospect, Jameson Taillon.

The goofy looking image of Jamo is the red parallel numbered 21/25
