The Final Countdown

I am already hard at work getting posts ready to go for the next month.  I have almost the first week of posts written with images and we are ready to roll...

This will be my last non pink (and various shades) card I show off before my annual Save Second Base event kicks in for the next 31 days. 

So let's get this out of the way, shall we?
I recently picked up a purple 2018 Bowman Best with an Andrew McCutchen Yankees Jersey Serial Number (26/250) to pair up with my blue jersey serial number (26/150) I got a long time ago.  There are only 2 other parallels that I could attempt to get the actual jersey number serial for of Cutch in a Yankees uniform.  They are the green/99 and gold/50.  If an opportunity opens up for me to get either one you bet your butt I'm gonna "upgrade" the serial numbers I have to do it.   Already upgraded the purple from this.

And in case you're wondering either 1)I don't remember Cutch on the Yankees or 2)I don't remember him having any other number besides 22 let me give you a history lesson.  Late in August of 2018, the San Francisco Giants were clearly no longer in the playoff picture and Aaron Judge was nursing an injury that made the Yankees not comfortable heading into September without upgrading their already injury plagued outfield.  They made a trade with the Giants while the Giants were already in NY playing the Mets and Cutch was traded to the Bronx Bombers.  Cutch was given number 26 because Jacoby Ellsbury was still technically on the roster despite not playing for over a year.




Now for details about the next month as a reminder for how things will go.

I want to hear your suggestions.

I want to read blogs about 3D (DDD) cards before tomorrow because my contest ends for the Kelly Brook autograph in only a few hours.

And I want a lot of activity on the blogosphere over the month showing pink cards.  For every post you share in the comments that features a pink card I will match my $1 per comment donation to Save Second Base for every comment made on YOUR BLOG with a pink card shown and link in the comments below.  The more blogs that show off pink cards and the more comments (no spam) the more money I am donating.

Together, we can all raise awareness and that is why I am offering up a really cool card for my final post before we get rolling.

If you make a post with a pink card leave a comment below with the link and you will be entered in a random drawing for this Babe Ruth Yankees Stadium Seat relic numbered to only 6 copies.  Did I mention it's pink????  
How cool is that card?
You want to win it? Make a post with pink cards (or shades of pink or hell...any card with pink on the card) and leave a comment below with the link.  

The contest will end on the day when the ALCS ends.  

The randomizer will go off 3 times (Ruth's jersey number) and the blogger on top, wins.

Let's #SAVESECONDBASE!!!

  3. The back of that Ruth card doesn't come close to explaining what in the world is happening on the front of that card. So, so strange.

    1. I'm shocked that Leaf was allowed to use the term Yankees Stadium. However to explain the image I found this

      "While Ruth was eligible for the draft during World War I, he was never called to service. Ten years into his career as a Major League Baseball player, he joined the New York National Guard. While he was never called up to active duty, he often made public appearances on behalf of the military"

  4. Completely forgot that Cutch was a Yankee. But I won't forget about posting some pink. Who wouldn't want a Ruth relic for their collection?

  13. I actually have some baseball cards that should count as pinkish. Hopefully this is an improvement over my previous entry.
