A 1/1 Cheaper Than 2,013 copies?

It took 3 weeks for the seller to finally ship the card to me (and over a year in my possession to show off), but adding another printing plate (nearing 100 different plates) made it all worth the wait.

Now what is strange about adding this particular 1/1 printing plate was actually cheaper than adding the Gold /2013.

It has been reported that many of the 2013 Update Golds for Cutch (#US35) were destroyed in the making of the cards due to quality issues.  When they hit the open market, a single copy can sell for over $100.

It's a shame that Cutch got injured and will be out for the rest of the season.  He was almost a top 10 in the NL for WAR position players at time of injury.  On top of that he still leads the NL in base on balls despite missing the last week.


  1. How far away from 100 are you now?

  2. That's crazy that the gold version is so pricey!

  3. I didn't know that about the Golds. Interesting! Congrats on another plate.

  4. How does one player have so many darn printing plates?

  5. Never heard about the 2013 Update Gold Cutch. Triple figures is insane. Congratulations on adding a new plate to your collection.
