Cool Combo

2005 UD Artifacts dual auto/jersey Brian Giles and Jason Bay /10

I've owned this card since 2006 and I'm glad I got it when I did.  I'm sure I paid a lot more than what it is worth now, but I haven't seen another hit eBay since.  It features the best trade the Pirates made during their 20 year losing streak.  Giles was an absolute beast during his tenure as a Pirate.  Trading at peak value the Buccos moved Giles to the Padres for a package that included Jason Bay and Oliver Perez.  Bay would go on  to win rookie of the year and make several All Star games.  If I would ever take time to create a top ten list of favorite cards I own this one would most likely make the short list.  

Thanks for checking out the blog!

  2. That is a nice looking card. I have seen quite a few of the dual relics but not with the Autos. Great card and I can see why it is one of your favorites.
