With the injury plagued season that Gerrit Cole has had this year, his card prices have dropped substantially. He's only made 2 starts since June. This is good for me as it allows me to add some rather nice autographs and patches of his for less than normal prices.
Such was the case for the above dual ON CARD auto of Gerrit Cole and Zack Wheeler. I've seen this card sell in the $35 - $50 range before and was very lucky to get it for literally a fraction of that price. The card is hand signed and numbered to only 20 copies. I've been wanting to get a Zack Wheeler autograph so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to add his John Hancock to my collection. Wheeler has been a very consistent pitcher this year with a mid 3 ERA and averaging just under a strikeout per inning. He will need to allow fewer walks in order to become a true front of the rotation pitcher though.
