It's official!

Gerrit Cole has been announced as the team's Opening Day starter.  For the first time in 3 years I won't be going to see the Pirates on Opening Day, but.... I will be seeing game 2 of the 2017 season in my first trip to Fenway Park.  I am pretty excited about that.

Here is one of my older booklets of Cutch with a jumbo jersey swatch of both Cole and Cutch.  It's numbered to only 5!!!

I have a few other low numbered Cole/Cutch combo cards.

I will show them off in future starts by the Cole Train.


  1. Collecting Cole? New blog name?

    Still bummed he didn't sign with Yanks after they drafted him. Sigh.

  2. I have less than 100 Cole cards. I wouldn't be surprised if he signs with the Yankees once he is a free agent.

  3. I have a couple of Museum Collection books too. It was always a little disappointing that they used plain swatches for such high end cards, but on the flip side that is probably the only way I was going to win the auction.
