McCutchen Mailday #137-142: 3 more relics, 2 minis, and a color swap

On the 12th day of April, the mailman gave to me...
3 Jersey Relics

2 tiny minis

And a Color Swap from Her-i-tage

I'm still so far behind with updating the blog as you can clearly tell by this late post.

I never expected to be this far behind with updating the blog. Nearly 4 months of Cutch cards have to be updated still.

McCutchen Mailday #135 + 136: Case break results

I joined a case break of 2016 Gypsy Queen and received a base card of Cutch along with a photo variant mini.

I also grabbed several other cards including several photo variant minis.

McCutchen Mailday #130-134: more rookies, relics, and photo variants

I joined a Gypsy Queen case break in hopes of hitting some Cutch parallels or maybe a big Clemente hit. Neither happened so I ended up using some extra eBay bucks on the cards you see below.

Up first is this 2005 Heritage red back mini.

Next up is the 2016 Gypsy Queen photo variant along with the Copper parallel of MLB Debut and a Spring Fever card from 2016.

The final card received is a Donruss Bat Kings relic from 2015.

As I type this on the 102nd day of the year (April 11th) I am on pace for hitting the 400 mark of adding new Cutch cards to the PC.
As you can see I will be very far behind with my blogging as life gets in the way.

I am 4 months behind posting. While I have definitely slowed down with buying Cutch cards, I have still added over 225 new cards to the PC so far this year with some big ones recently added (8 new 1/1s and more on the way).

McCutchen Mailday #129: It's Majestic

It's not everyday that a Majestic jumbo relic of Cutch pops up, but when one does, I try to not waste time.

Very excited to add this to my Cutch collection.

Starling Marte Kanji

This is just an awesome looking card.

I have been wanting one of these Asia Exclusive Kanji cards.

Another Ryan Doumit 1/1 Frenzy

For whatever reason, Ryan Doumit was one of my favorite players during the late 2000s before leaving to join the Twins.  He always seemed to hit clutch when the Pirates were playing meaningless baseball in June because the team was already on their way to another 90+ loss season.

This lot of cards was purchased for $30 and includes a rare 1/1 plate. Most plates of Doumit don't make it to the secondary market for whatever reason. This might be the 4th I've seen since I began collecting him in 2009.

McCutchen Mailday #116-119: A bunch of low number relics and parallels

I love nice looking color parallels from Topps Tribute. Seeing these two /35 and /25 for around $30 was just too nice to pass up.

I've been grabbing Heritage parallels so I snagged a blue back 51' Collection for a couple bucks.

I love minis and getting mini parallels of Cutch continues to be one of my big goals for this year.

McCutchen Mailday #114: Black is Back!

Like I said last week, I have been buying up Cutch parallels from Heritage like crazy. The latest addition is this black chrome from 2014 Heritage. I had made arrangements to buy this from a Blowout forums member, but the deal fell through. Thanks to a bunch of eBay bucks, I grabbed it when the member listed it for less than the price we were trying to negotiate for.
