With the warmer weather hopefully hitting this week, my girlfriend and I are already planning what days we will be going to the beach to relax and enjoy each other's company soaking in the sun and catching up on some books.
She tends to read crime novels and murder mysteries while I read sports biographies. One of the books I got as a Christmas present is The Team that Changed Baseball: the story of the 1971 Pirates that fielded the very first all minority team. I am really looking forwarded to reading it as it has been on my radar for some time.
Over the years both Topps and Panini have used cut up throwback uniforms of Cutch in their products.
A few months ago I managed to grab an awesome swatch of the uniform from Flawless. It's the Emerald version numbered to only 3 copies.
This card is an absolute beaut.
The back discusses how Cutch's career compared to former Pirates superstar Barry Bonds.
Of course the irony is Cutch is now with the Giants who is the same team Bonds left the Pirates for.
