McCutchen Mailday Numbers 42, 43, and 44: A lot of Shine!!!!

Big mailday today as 3 new Andrew McCutchen cards came in the mail from eBay in my pursuit for 100.

These three beautiful low numbered parallels hailing from 2014 Topps Chrome, Prizm, and Finest cost me a grand total of $32.  That might seem pricy for only 3 pieces of cardboard that don't have any relics, signatures, or manufactured pins on them.  That's all true, but if you looked at these 3 cards and the way they refract light and shine on a page, you'd change your mind.

All 3 cards are numbered to 100 or less copies and are part of a bigger rainbow project I intend to complete of Cutch this year.

The lack of Spring Training at bats and now his knee problems are a sign of concern for the Bucs as they start the season 1-4. Every single game they lost in Cincinnati could have gone to them just as easily, but you can't make excuses for the loss column. 3 Games under .500 and 4 games out of 1st isn't worth panicking over in April. They've been there as recent as last year. Cutch's health, however, is a little worrisome. I thought he was Fearless as depicted in this card.


  1. I love those Finest Competitors inserts. I pulled a gold version of McCutchen, but traded it away. Awesome cards!
