McCutchen Monday: Cutch jersey, prospect trade bait, and the contest winner is....

I recently saw a nice lot of 5 prospect autographs and a 2012 Heritage McCutchen jersey on ebay for a low price of $15.  I pulled the trigger and am happy to list some new trade bait.

First up though is the 2012 Topps Heritage jersey relic of Cutch.  This is not for trade.
Cutch had a huge game yesterday driving all 3 of the Pirates runs.  He hit a double in the 1st inning to put the Bucs ahead 1-0 then hit a 2 run two out linedrive homerun over the left field wall to put the Bucs up 3-0.  There was some shananigans when Cutch came up in the bottom of the 7th inning as Mitch Maier dove over the wall in foul territory and appeared to catch the ball, but once his glove hit the ground, he flipped over causing the ball to roll out under his back.  As the umpire was running up the line he reached behind him and showed the ball and Cutch was called out.  Karma came back though as Maier struck out looking with the bases loaded in the 8th on a borderline strike call. 

So who wants to see some prospect autographs up for trade?

First up are two Tampa Bay Rays autographs that Troll might be interested in, but no one has claimed yet.
The most notable is Mike Mahtook (card on right) who was taken in the 1st round by the Tampa Bay Rays last year. 
Mahtook is currently the Rays 3rd best prospect in one of baseball's best farm systems.
The Mahtook is numbered 207/299 and features an on card autograph.

Jeff Ames is the Rays 18th best prospect.  He currently has a very good 11.6 K/9 in his first season in proball.  The Ames sticker auto is numbered 142/299

The Pirates play the Arizona D'Backs again this year, so if there is no interest I may put the Anthony Meo auto (middle card above) in for the Let's Go Bucs contest instead of my Randy Johnson patch I was planning on using.  Meo is numbered 216/299 and is currently the D'Backs 13th best prospect.  In 62 professional innings he has a 3.47 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 10.1 K/9.

Neither Jared Hoying (Texas) or Hernan Perez (Detroit) are in their team's top 20 prospects as ranked by Jon Mayo.

If you're interested in any of the cards, shoot me an email or leave a comment.
