I have been collecting Andrew McCutchen cards for well over a decade now and have been super collecting him very aggressively for probably about 7 years strong now. I am getting very close to 3,000 unique cards of Cutch and have been trying to enjoy the hobby with other players I enjoy watching play.
While I will continue to enjoy the hobby and have a lifetime goal of getting 3,000 unique items featuring Roberto Clemente there is a lot of new sets and inserts coming out that don't feature a member of the Pirates or Andrew McCutchen. With Cutch appearing in fewer sets as he becomes more of a veteran, I am still picking up examples of sets if they have Charlie Morton in it. However, there are is a lot of overlap in sets that feature both Morton and McCutchen so I am not chasing EVERY parallel of Morton like I do for Cutch. I showed off a few of the big hits I picked up for the Ground Chuck PC not long ago here.
A player that I have absolutely loved the style, enthusiasm, and class of which he plays is Mookie Betts. I have ZERO plans to get to 3K Mookie Betts cards, but will be looking at adding inserts and new release base cards of Betts as they become available.
I recently picked up a large lot of Andrew McCutchen cards on Twitter for $20.
The lot has over 100 cards and includes a few SP, minis, and parallels I didn't have. I'm really looking forward to going through all these cards over the weekend.
If I were to buy only the cards I needed it would have cost me around $12-$15 not counting the shipping costs of each card individually. Getting them all in one place without dealing with extra charges that COMC would be charging is worth the price I paid alone. Then add to the fact that I got almost 100 dupes of my favorite player for less than a quarter a card AND offering me an opportunity to get in on some other great deals he may post in the future seems like a smart move to expand my portfolio of what and who I collect.
Because of the McCutchen lot, I was able to grab a lot of 153 Mookie Betts (about 95 unique cards) for $45 delivered. I'm ok grabbing cards of the 2nd best player in the game for the price of 50cents a card. Instant start to a collection....
the Betts is yet to come though.
