Cards from Collecting Cutch and a CONTEST

I got a package this week from Brian of the blog Collecting Cutch. He recently held a contest where he asked participants to predict when Andrew McCutchen would hit his 200th home run. I didn't win the contest, but I did pick a day that McCutchen hit a a home run, #201, so Brian being the awesome guy that he is, sent me a sweet package.

Before you read any further go check out his post about Roberto Clemente.

Now, follow Brian's lead and do something good for someone else today. Let me know that you did something good for someone else this weekend and I'll enter you into a little contest to win this 1954 Bowman card of Boston Red Sox Ted.....Lepcio. You don't have to tell me what you did if you don't want to, just that you did something. Big or small, as long as you did something to make a difference in the world, your entered into the contest.

Now, let's take a look at some of the cards that Brian sent me.

First up are two McCutchen cards. These may have accidentally fallen in or Brian may have included them because my McCutchen collection is currently as weak as 2015 Mark Buehrle fastball.

Check out this vintage stock Jorge De La Rosa card. Jorge has been a decent addition to the D-Backs bullpen this season as he made the transition from a starter. Fun Fact: Jorge De La Rosa is the Colorado Rockies all-time leader in Wins (86) and Strikeouts (985). 

The card is numbered on the back out of 99.

These Sega CardGen cards are awesome!

Here's a numbered Goldschmidt that I needed!

This 3000 Hit Club card of Hank Aaron is so simple, but I love it!

Finally, a sweet jersey card of Gonzo! Thanks again Brian for a great batch of cards! Now go make the world a better place!


  1. Cutch is the man! Nice Gonzo swatch

    I did something nice but I don't need anything for doing it. I just enjoy doing it :)

  2. You guys are awesome for sure...I'LL nominate my wife, who takes care of me every day...being a disabled person, life isn't always pleasant, and I wouldn't be here without her.

  3. I'm glad you enjoyed the cards. I don't need anything for it, but I helped a co-worker with some of her father's funeral expenses.

    I always try to sneak in a few extra McCutchen cards for every package I ship someone. I got so many extras.

  4. I spent this past Saturday, and a couple days a month, taking care of yard work for a disabled Army Vet.
