Black Diamond added to my Treasure Chest

The Pirates lost to the Braves 4-3 today on account of some terrible clutch hitting by the Pirates bats.  On top of that, Andrew McCutchen went 0-4 and committed an error in centerfield which lead to an additional 14 pitches needing to be thrown by starting pitcher Kevin Correia and an unearned run scored in the 3rd inning.  Cutch got hit in the hip in the 1st inning which may have caused him some discomfort throughout the game causing him to not perform well.  It's only a game though, and with James McDonald going for Pittsburgh tomorrow, I think the Bucs have a good shot at splitting the series.
I added this beautiful black diamond dicut Andrew McCutchen to my collection this weekend.  The serially numbered card (51/60) still has it's protective layer on top.  The scan can not do this card any amount of justice no matter how many times I attempt to scan it.  Absolutely beautiful card of my favorite player.
The card given away for the St. Louis Cardinals road series is the same card I offered up last week when the Pirates hosted the defending champs.  Check out the Yadier Molina black parallel 2012 Topps numbered 49/61 that's up for grabs if the Pirates win the series against the defending World Series Champions.  LET'S GO BUCS!!!!

All previous contest winners cards will be going out tomorrow.
