Julie from Things Are Funner Here runs a great blog highlighting Phillies cards, her Roy Halladay collection, and pack breaks. It's a fun blog. Go check it out!
I always enjoy getting some new Cutch cards to add to my collection. I normally don't chase Wal-Mart or Target exclusives, but when it's Cutch I can't help but excited to open up that binder and slide the new Cutch in next to all the other parallels.
Here's the hits of the package that Julie sent me.
Correia was signed as a free agent prior to the 2011 season. He earned his first All-Star game trip due to being one of the NL's leaders in wins. After the All-Star break, Correia would go on to win only 1 more game and was shut down in August with an injury.
JVB was one of colleges top hitters prior to the 2001 draft. He lead the NCAA division 1-A in HR, but was converted to a pitcher by the Pirates. He currently has one of the highest career ERA in MLB history.
I'm so happy to see Nate back with the Bucs. The Clear Path to Greatness Red Ink autos were supposed to be short prints. Nate doesn't play by those rules though as he used the red marker to sign all his autographs for the set.
AS A REMINDER...
TONIGHT THE PIRATES WILL TAKE ON THE DODGERS IN HOPES OF BECOMING .500 AGAIN. TOMORROW STARTS THEIR SERIES AGAINST THE SAN FRANSISCO GIANTS. DON'T FORGET TO TRY TO WIN THOSE FREE CARDS FOR THE LET'S GO BUCS CONTEST.
