McCutchen Mailday #42: Stars of Summer Dual Relic

My 42nd new Cutch card added to the PC in 2016 hails from 2014 Classics.  Oddly enough, this card is actually numbered 42.

There's a bunch of different parallels to this particular card including relics containing single bats or single jerseys or dual jersey or dual bat or a bat and jersey.  This one appears to be jersey and pants (based on material)

McCutchen Mailday #40 & 41: Two More Stratas

I seriously fell in love with Topps Strata this year especially since my favorite player, Andrew McCutchen was featured in it.

Here's my two latest Cutch cards from Strata.

Barry Bonds Rookie Rack Pack!!!!

Check out what I came across for $5.

1987 Topps was the card series that got me into collecting baseball cards.  I remember buying packs upon packs upon packs of this stuff when I was younger.

This rack pack which is still sealed with a Mike Schmidt All-Star card and Barry Bonds "rookie" card are prominently featured on the front
It's not going to command the demand it would have if this was 1992, but overall not a bad pickup for $5. I'm happy adding this to the man cave.

McCutchen Mailday #39: YouTuber Brad8671

A few days ago I received a package in the mail from youtuber Brad8671.  I have been a follower/subscriber of Brad's for over a year now and his videos (especially during football season) are extremely entertaining.  If you're on youtube, go check him out.

Brad was showing off a few of his 2015 National Treasures that he had gotten in group breaks and mentioned "no one wants these" regarding the Jackie Robinson Tribute cards.  Well, I quickly emailed Brad saying "I do I do" regarding the Andrew McCutchen he had gotten. 

A few short days, this beauty showed up giving me my 39th unique card of Cutch I have added this year.
 The back of the card discusses what game the jersey is from and how Cutch fared in the game.

Again I want to thank Brad for his incredible kindness in sending this card over to me.  I will hit you back with some Dolphins stuff soon brother...

McCutchen Mailday #35-38: Low Numbered Parallels Galore

Quick post today, but I got a bunch of new Cutches in the mail the other day
 Up first are two parallels numbered to 99 or less.  The first is a stunning 2015 Topps Tribute Emerald /99 and the second is a /75 2014 Topps Chrome.  I'm getting fairly close to completing the rainbow for the 2014 Chrome.  I know that I will never the Superfractor though.
Up next are two 10th Anniversary Allen & Ginter cards.  The first is a jersey swatch and the 2nd is the black exclusive 10th anniversary base card.

McCutchen Mailday #34: It's so shiny

Staying the course of adding one new Andrew McCutchen card per day, brings me this incredibly sparkly Sapphire sparkle variant of Cutch's 2013 Update
While not nearly as rare or expensive as the 2013 Topps Update Gold /2013, this card actually features a much lower number (/25)

McCutchen Mailday #33: All-Star Jumbo Patch Autograph /6

I might have the best personal collection of Andrew McCutchen cards available on the internet, but that's not going to slow me down from adding more cards that pop up.

My recent addition is another big hit (similar to the past few Cutch additions in 2016). 

Numbered to only 6 copies and featuring a jumbo All-Star Workout Jersey patch from "L" in National, this 2015 Update All-Star  Jumbo Patch Autograph has a sticker auto of Cutch.

This All-Star game will be memorable for me because it's the year that Cutch hit a HomeRun.
