It was against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays on March 12, 2006 that Cutch suited up wearing number 62 and made a SportsCenter top catch that made Pirates fans excited for his defense.
I was able to purchase a small lot of older signed cards and photos from Spring Training Games and among the lot were these two focal points.
This photo is printed on Costco paper and appears to have been signed by Cutch in his early minor league career. Prior to his more recognizable ACutch signature, Andrew used to sign items using his full name. The photo captures the difficult running jumping catch that Cutch made in his very early career to impress Pirates front office and fans.
I think both of these items are pretty unique additions to the collection as they are a part of Cutch's road to the show.
Do you have any cards or memorabilia signed by players before they made it to the majors?
