The (Evil) Empire Strikes Back

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Visit the official site here.

Breast Cancer will be detected in one of eight women in the US each year.

It is the second leading cause of cancer death among women each year.

On average every 2 minutes a woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer and every 13 minutes one person will die from breast cancer.
There are currently 33 million breast cancer survivors in the USA.

It's important to support the research for cancer.  Breast Cancer is often associated with the color pink so I will be showing off some pink Cutch cards.

In addition, you can expect to see some boobs with each post.  Who doesn't love boobs?

So let's start with what we're hoping to save!
I have no idea who this is, but it certainly is an attention grabber....and it features a nice look at this month's prominent color.

The Yankees are on the brisk of elimination at their rival, the Boston Red Sox. While I don't like the "Evil Empire" I do enjoy the thought of two of my favorite Pirates in recent years (Neil Walker and Andrew McCutchen) having the chance to play deeper into the postseason.

Here are my top 5 women wearing Yankees hats to try and hope they can pull out a victory so that Cutch may chase his World Series ring.

1. Kate Upton

2. Jennifer Lopez

3. Minka Kelly

4. Christina Aguilera (how dare you betray the Burgh)

5. Selena Gomez

To the surprise of many fans, this isn't the first time that Cutch has worn pinstripes. During his rookie season with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Cutch would wear an alternate pinstripe uniform.

It can be seen on this 2009 Topps Update 1/1 Magenta Printing Plate. It's his rookie card.
I remember getting this plate from Sportlots for only $15 in 2010.  That was a massive coup for me.


  1. Damn... $15 for that printing plate. That's awesome! Gotta wonder if the seller ever thinks about that card.

    P.S. That girl in pink definitely grabbed my attention.

    1. I know I am disappointed that I didn't buy a Trout Bowman Chrome Refractor at a card show for $1 and chose instead to spend that money on 2 50 cent Marc Andre Fleury inserts. Some ya win. Some ya lose.

  2. Lots of eye grabbers in this post

  3. J-Lo is an All-Time great who may be the one that finally gets A-Rods head out of his backside. There's always someone to do that for all us guys.

    Have you done a Bond Girls Post?

    Halle Berry, Denise Richards, Carey Lowell, Jayne Seymore.S

    1. Denise Richards appeared last year for her role as Christmas Jones

    2. I'll have to re visit. My memory isn't always good.

  4. May I suggest golfer Paige Spiranac. Google her w/ Steelers fan.
