First of all, in a completely unrelated post, Congratulations to Adrian Beltre on his 3,000 career hit yesterday. He continues to get better as he gets older.
Speaking of older...
My old blog showed a 2005 Bowman Heritage photo variant where Cutch had a bat resting on his shoulder. We were all taught as young athletes to keep the bat off your shoulder.
Many times players will pose with a bat on their shoulder for a photoshoot, such was the case for that 2005 Bowman Heritage.
Rarely do you see unposed game action photos by Topps with a bat on their shoulder.
2017 Topps offered a photo variant of Cutch.
This time, it has him walking in the dugout with 3 bats on his shoulder. This card would be perfect for Daniel's multiple bat collection. It is also perfect to show off today as Andrew hit 3 homeruns in a game for the 3rd time in his career.
These SP parallels are strange entities. They go as cheap as $35 and as high as $90. I was fortunate to grab mine for just over $40.
Hopefully Cutch will get a Topps Now card to celebrate his Home Run victory.
To close out today's post here is the original 2005 Bowman Heritage photo variant I referenced above.
