Dual Auto of Dualing Aces

I can't contain my excitement for these two pitchers making it to the majors.  While I'm more excited about Jameson Taillon, Gerrit Cole has already made his debut and delivered on every expectation placed upon him.

It would be great to have them both up so they can learn from AJ & Wandy before we part ways with them during the offseason.

I've been on a mad hunt for any cards featuring the future mound stars and this 2012 Bowman Sterling was a nice pickup for $60 a couple months ago.  Some of you may think, I can buy a box of Series 2 for the price of that card, but I would rather have this one card than a bunch of commons for teams I don't root for.  Just my thought process.

Without further delay, I present you my 2012 Bowman Sterling Dual Auto of Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon numbered 18/38.

Speaking of aces, I managed to complete the 2013 Gypsy Queen Dualing Aces insert set after picking up a handful at a mall card show.

Here's my favorite from each card suit.
I chose Adam Wainwright for one reason and one reason only, he looks the part of a baseball player.  He still wears the old school socks and is a competitor on the mound.

I chose Yu because he was my first pitcher I grabbed in fantasy baseball this year and has been lights out so far.  Hell, he almost threw a perfect game on his first start this year.

Kershaw was a fantasy baseball classic for me dating back to 2009, but this year he was ranked too high for me to grab.  I love this kid.  He's a strikeout machine with low walk numbers that racks up Ws.

Chris Sale has been a dark horse since he was drafted in 2010.  My ex girlfriend's sister was a classmate of his so I rooted for him from the moment he was drafted.  The fact that I am a closet White Sox fan probably helps. LOL!
