Andrew McCutchen may not have all the hype of guys like Acuna, Alonso, Tatis Jr, Guerrero Jr, or Trout but trust me when I say that he is collected and has a VERY LOYAL following of collectors.
I have made some trades with other Cutch collectors and have bought large collections from guys that sold their Cutch cards after the Pirates traded him to San Francisco last year.
That being said there are at least two other collectors of Cutch that have been buying up his stuff lately. One I was told has unlimited funds and has purchased a card for $100 more than a copy of it that sold the day before.
I am sitting on several hundred cards that I have never shown off here ranging from high end autographs and 1/1s to base cards.
With getting 3 of my top 5 cards on my want list in the past few months, I am going to decide to lay low for a bit to not get into bidding wars with other collectors while they are being in my eyes too aggressive buying recent cards of the former MVP.
I'm sure some of you may remember the chaos that occurred a few years ago when a pair of collectors were battling each other for Omar Vizquel and Andres Gallaraga cards. Some 1/1s were going for thousands of dollars. I am not prepared for that $#*+.
Call me chicken.
Call me yellow.
Call me what you will, but I'm out of this madness for awhile until it settles down.
Today's post features just 5 of the 1/1s I have never shown off before. They are all yellow printing plates, a fitting color for my recent admission to get out of buying new cards. Of the five shown off today, the only one that has been bought recently was the Tristar Elegance pictured above. I won it in June for only $9.99, before one of the other Cutch collectors resurfaced.
