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 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!
