A John Holdzkom John Hancock

When the 2015 Topps Series 1 Checklist came out, there was one card in particular that I NEEDED to add to my collection.  After nearly 2 months I finally have it in hand.

Behold the majestic awesomeness of this cardboard...

When John Holdzkom made his major league debut last year, it was feel good story that made some headlines.  If you watched him dominate batters, it was a great story for the Pirates scouting department and fans were very excited about the former Indy Ball league prospect.

Holdzkom has always had a strong strikeout numbers, but didn't find his control until last year while a member of the Buccos minor leagues.

I got a chance to meet John Holdzkom at PiratesFest last December and he was kind enough to sign a baseball from a game he pitched in.

Holdzkom looks to begin 2015 in the minors but will likely be the first arm they call upon when needed.
