McCutchen Monday: Cutch, Kemp, Victorino!!! Triple AUTO!!!!!!

My current favorite player in baseball 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 Pirates are currently battling to advance further in the NL Playoffs being lead by their superstar centerfielder Andrew McCutchen.  The Dodgers are rallying to win their ticket to the NLCS without their star outfielder and former MVP candidate Matt Kemp.  The Red Sox are having a fantastic year with Shane Victorino handling the right field duties.  The card below shows all 3 of those players autographs on a 2012 UD Superstars Triple Auto numbered to 25 copies.

I've been after this card for a long time.  I always see it go in the $60-$80 range though and just never wanted to pull the trigger for a card with sticker autos and no images of the players for that price.  When I saw one listed with a BIN or Best Offer, I rolled the dice and asked if the seller would sell it for $40 shipped.  Less than 24 hours it was mine and on it's way to NJ.  For $13.33 an auto, I'm happy to add another certified auto of Cutch to my collection.

I think I may need to add some more Cutch autos to my collection.  I only have 68 so far.
