Get Back In The Cage

Cutch has always been a slow starter to the season.  His best months are usually June, July, and August.

Don't hit the panic button yet Giants fans.  Cutch was hitting a measly .226 on April 26th, 2013.  He went on to win the NL MVP, his 2nd Silver Slugger award, and lead the Pirates to their first winning season in 20 years.

Cutch will start raking at the plate again soon.

He is too dedicated to his craft not to be.

I won this batting practice photo variant from 2018 Topps shortly after release.  It cost me about $10.  Now they can be found for around $4.  I guess I should have waited a few months, but after struggling for 3 years to track down a 2014 Opening Day photo variant I am always nervous about letting them get away for a fair price.  $10 for a one in 3 box variant seems fair.


  1. I actually like the BP photo variant. Pretty cool!

  2. I've been in your shoes before. Sometimes I get so excited about a card, I just have to have it now and end up paying too much. Oh well... at least we can hold it in our hands and appreciate the beauty.
