Get Aboard the Tardis

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Visit the official site here.

Breast Cancer will be detected in one of eight women in the US each year.

It is the second leading cause of cancer death among women each year.

On average every 2 minutes a woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer and every 13 minutes one person will die from breast cancer.
There are currently 33 million breast cancer survivors in the USA.

It's important to support the research for cancer.  Breast Cancer is often associated with the color pink so I will be showing off some pink Cutch cards.

In addition, you can expect to see some boobs with each post.  Who doesn't love boobs?

So let's start with what we're hoping to save!

Jenna Louise Coleman
Strangely enough like so many other of the lovely featured this month, there is very few pictures of Coleman showing massive signs of cleavage.

She appears to be a classy lady.

As so many of these pictures show.
When it comes to British TV shows, the only one I could consistently watch was Doctor Who.
Something about that Police Box aka Tardis just seems so cool to me.

Coleman is a British actress best known for her role in Doctor Who.




The design for the 2018 Home Run Challenge cards remind me of a promotion ad for Doctor Who with the Tardis traveling through time and space in the background.


The July winners were rose colored. McCutchen's copy was numbered to only 17 copies.  I predicted my date of July 31st which was a bold move considering all the trade rumors surrounding Cutch at the non waiver deadline.

Do any of you watch Doctor Who?

The (wrong) Road To Victory

Julia Benson

Her first acting job was about a stripper trying to take care of a football player who couldn't fulfill sexual needs.  The movie was called Road to Victory.

She became very polular in the TV Series Stargate:Universe.

This was in large part because of her large breasts which lead to articles being written called Boobgate.
Other notable credits include
You would have to be an idiot not to notice a hottie like Julia






I sometimes am an idiot, but Topps has been known to make idiot mistakes when editing their cards.

Sometimes Topps purposely makes errors for their Heritage cards (an homage to the vintage brand from the 50s and 60s), but when they show up in other brands they are often not intended.

The 2015 Bowman Best release had some incorrect information on the back of the card.

Cutch's epic walk off homer was July 11th, NOT June 11th.  Whoever missed this, I say this..."What an idiot! That's not the Road to Victory date."

Fortunately the Magenta Plate doesn't have any incorrect information on the back.

I currently have 3 of the plates for this card (magenta pictured below along with black and cyan).




On a completely different note, congrats to David Price for finally winning a playoff game.

The Price is certainly Right now!

Cardboard Cameo: Not Your Typical...

Dakota Blue Richards

Richards began her career with a leading role in The Golden Compass.  The role of Lyra was a role of her dreams according to an early interview.

She has also appeared in shows like Skins and Endeavor.


One of her most recent movies is a film called ChickLit.  It is about a group of older men who write a raunchy novel in hopes of saving their pub.  They hire a young actress (Richards) to role play as the author in hopes of the book becoming a massive success and be published.

In essence, you wouldn't picture these old men as the typical authors of this chick literature (ChickLit).

Andrew McCutchen has said the same of Starling Marte in the past.

Flip this 2017 Topps Chrome Pink Refractor of Marte over and you'll see the quote by Cutch of his former teammate.

The back of this chrome card talks about Starling Marte's incredible strong arm and how he's not a typical left fielder.

Agent Carter Saves The Day

Hayley Atwell

Atwell has appeared in many different commercials, TV shows, and movies.

Her first break was a Pringles commercial.

She has also appeared as Cinderella's mother in the live action Cinderella movie.

Her biggest role thus far has been,playing Captain America's love interest, Peggy Carter.

While Hayley portrays a love interest of a famous American superhero, Atwell was born in London where the biggest fictional hero is James Bond. 

While Captain America (and Peggy Carter) face off against the terrorist organization Hydra, James Bond faces off against the organization Spectre.

Cutch appeared in this year's Spectra insert set of the 2018 Panini Chronicles release.
The pink parallel is numbered to 75 copies and discusses how Cutch saved the day with his early season heroics against the Dodgers by going 6 for 7 including a walk off extra inning homerun.

Another Hole in One of One!

Kelley Cahill
If you don't know her, I didn't either.

She is married to one of the world's best golfers, Jon Rahm.

They met at Arizona State.

Cahill was a dual sport athlete having competed both in tennis

And throwing the javelin.

Similar to other golf stars, I had no idea who this gorgeous woman was or even who Jon Rahm was.  She popped up while researching Paige Spiranac.

Let's thank John for the subconscious tip and congratulate Jon Rahm for landing this gorgeous classmate of his.

Speaking of landing things....about a year ago Brad sent me this extremely awesome short print magenta printing plate that he landed in his Gint A Cuffs 2016 challenge.

The different numbering makes this card eerily similar, but completely different than the base version.

It's kind of cool to be disguised sometimes.
