McCutchen Monday: Quite possibly the greatest card in my collection

My current favorite player in baseball today is Andrew McCutchen.  Quite honestly, he might be my favorite player I've ever gotten a chance to see play. I currently own almost 300 unique cards of Cutch and hope to get that number closer to 400 by the end of the year.  Amongst my cardboard collection of Cutch are many autographs, over a dozen 1/1s, and almost enough jersey material to put his jersey back together.  Back in 2011, I created Morton Mondays, but with the lack of Charlie Morton cards available, I changed it to McCutchen Mondays so each Monday I will show off one new card from my Cutch collection.

To see all my Andrew McCutchen relics, autos, printing plates, manupatches, etc ... check out this link.

The 2013 MLB All-Star Game festivities kick off tonight with Pedro Alvarez representing the Pirates in the Home Run Derby.  To celebrate the Pirates having 5 All-Stars make the NL squad, I'm going to show off one of my favorite cards in my collection.
2012 Topps Triple Threads All-Star Game Jersey Laundry Tag booklet 1/1

It's a 1/1 booklet from 2012 Topps Triple Threads featuring a laundry tag of Cutch.  I have a Panini National Treasures Laundry Tag card of Cutch which I showed off last month.  As nice as that card is, this card is just flat out ridiculous!!!!

It has a piece of the patch from the 2011 All-Star game jersey along with his laundry tag and authentication sticker from MLB on the card.
Don't believe Topps' jersey relics are authentic?  Well I guess is lying too.

And just to show off the outside of the booklet I did a scan of that too.

This is my 6th booklet of Cutch!!!!
