2016 saw me change my collecting strategy as I went from collecting all things Pittsburgh sports to focusing more on my favorite player, Andrew McCutchen.
It also saw me blog far less than I had in the past 5 years as I took several months away from the blogging world.
I hope to start 2017 out strongly and post on average 5 times a week going forward. Some posts will simply be "Check Out What I bought" while others will provide a lot more depth and thought into the writing process. Most importantly though, I really want this blog to showcase some really awesome Andrew McCutchen cards and rebuild the online friendships I have made over the years.
Sitting at nearly 1,400 unique cards of Cutch gives me many options to cite a favorite card in my collection. I can probably make a top 10 and maybe even a top 5, but truthfully I don't know if I can pinpoint one card in my Cutch collection that is my favorite.
The year 2016 saw me add 246 unique cards to my collection that were released in 2016. That's a lot of cardboard. There was many that were even 1/1s. Again, that's a lot of cardboard.
But of all the cardboard produced in 2016 of the 5 x All-Star, which is my favorite that I own?
The Blog Eamus Catuli is running a contest for your favorite card produced in 2016.
Well, after debating a wide variety of cards including 3 Superfractors, Roberto Clemente Award photo variants, and countless numbers of parallels and patches I had no other option that was more demanding of
My FAVORITE CARD OF 2016
This triple booklet Jumbo Patch from 2016 Topps Triple Threads is the clear cut winner. When I saw it, I knew it had to be mine. I made arrangements with the seller on a deal we both thought to be very fair and within a week it was home.
It features two Jolly Roger sleeve patches of Jung Ho Kang and Gerrit Cole respectively. It also features the P from Pirates throwback home jersey of my main PC, Andrew McCutchen.
I am awaiting a custom booklet case to be delivered to proudly display this behemoth.
I hope everyone had a very Happy and Safe New Year!
