Team WBC pickup

In addition to binge watching a bunch of TV shows over the past few weeks I also rewatched a lot of the Team USA games for the 2017 World Baseball Classic. 

Christian Yelich made himself known to the nation by batting in the two hole and being a main catalyst for the offense.  Adam Jones and Eric Hosmer were absolute studs for Team USA and Marcus Stroman pitched a masterpiece in the final game vs Puerto Rico. 

Cutch batted in the six spot for all the games he played and had a miniscule .559 OPS, but he did hit a few clutch hits including the go ahead RBI in the semifinals vs Japan. 

I had a lot of WBC cards already, but when I saw this card available for a very reasonable price,
well I just had to do a little dance

 and celebrate adding it to the collection.

Happy Saturday everyone!


  1. Cool patch! I’ve never been a huge WBC fan.

  2. Great card. There a Ian Kinsler card like that that, one day, hopefully, finds its way to me.

    Good Job! 👍

  3. That's a real beauty! I suppose my favorite WBC relic in my collection is of "Yoennis" Cespedes, as the card calls him--pretty much the only card made of him before he defected from Cuba, as far as I can tell.

  4. Awesome card. I love most of the MC WBC memorabilia cards that Topps has produced.

  5. What a great looking card! Congrats!
