The first two games of the Pirates 2014 season opened with walk off winners from former first round draft picks Neil Walker (2004) and Tony Sanchez (2009). What's more interesting though is that these two walkoffs were both MLB firsts for the former first rounders.
One of my collecting goals for 2014 was try to and get half of the 2009 Bowman Chrome Tony Sanchez autos graded 9.5 or better. I had previously shown off the base auto from January.
I've had this blue refractor for sometime, probably since the beginning of January or maybe even the end of December. I remember getting it for a steal of a price, $40 or so if I remember correctly.
I decided now was a good time to show it off though as the Pirates just lost their first game of 2014 and I'm feeling a little blue.
