I want to thank everyone who messaged me over the past few days regarding both my car accident and the trading of Cutch.
I am working on finding a new car at the moment, but have a rental lined up until I find something definitive.
As for Cutch, I will still be Collecting Cutch. Looking back at the recent Hall of Famers dating back to 2010 only 3 played their entire careers with one team (Larkin, Bagwell, Biggio). We know that Alan Trammell, Chipper Jones, Derek Jeter, and Mariano Rivera will all make the Hall of Fame too.
The days of great players staying with one team their entire careers are few and far between. Even a 10 year No Trade Clause doesn't mean you get to stay with one team. Just ask Stanton and Verlander.
So what will my focus be now that Cutch is no longer with the Pirates?
I'm still going to seek out any Pirates cards I don't own
Any certified autographs will always be high priority
I will be looking to get some game used items (bats, jerseys, etc)
Stay here as I provide daily updates to the collection and continue to show off my over 2,000 unique cards of Cutch.
And don't forget to checkout Chasing3000cards, my latest blog where I am making a decade long commitment to acquire 3,000 unique Roberto Clemente cards.
I purchased this Topps Now off eBay yesterday. It is my first Cutch card with a Giants logo.
It breaks my heart.
Who knows, maybe Topps will make some Cutch/Bonds dual cards now because of the Pittsburgh/San Francisco connection.
