McCutchen Mailday #14: 2009 Topps t206 Bronze

The Quest for 100 carries on as I have begun to fill in some older holes in the Cutch collection by adding this 2009 t206 Bronze card to my collection for $1.99 delivered.  Not a bad price to pay for a rookie card of one of the best outfielders in the game today. I almost forget what Cutch looked like predreads.

The front and back of the card feature many of the old printing techniques that Topps has used recently with their Gypsy Queen, Allen & Ginter, Turkey Red, Heritage cards.  They are printed on non glossy stock with a vintage feel.

The back of the card discusses McCutchen's debut in the majors when he hit .329 and hit safely in 18 of his first 20 games in 2009. The "stain" on the card can be seen on all versions of the card.
