I found the bronzed Wandy

The title may have you thinking of a children's movie from the 80s or the weirdest porno you've ever seen.  In fact, it's actually about my first autographed card of Wandy Rodriguez.  This is a baseball card blog afterall.  Earlier in the summer, Topps released a Topps Tribute line of cards to celebrate the World Baseball Classic.  It featured autographs, jersey relics, and base cards.  You know, the normal Tribute line.  There were different levels of rarity for the autographs, much like everything else that Topps did.
2013 Topps Tribute AUTO Wandy Rodriguez 8/35

Well for the low price of a high bid of 99 cents I grabbed the above sticker auto of Wandy Rodriguez.  Wandy doesn't sign often and I have been impressed with him since joining the black and gold last year.

In his 24 starts as a Pirate, Wandy is 10-8 with an ERA of 3.66.  He's become everything the Pirates were hoping for when they sent 3 prospects to Houston last July.  Unfortunately, Wandy has faced several injuries this season and it's questionable if he'll be available to pitch at all before the playoffs.
