2005 Leaf Century Collection Jason Bay 1/1 Auto
I haven't shown off many of my Jason Bay autos since I started the blog even though I have more of his autos than any other Pirate. Bay was the best player on some horrible Pirate teams. Anybody who followed the Pirates in the mid 2000's probably has a soft spot for the former Bucco outfielder. Injuries derailed his career but at his peak he was an all star caliber player.
Most Bay autos would sell for $10-35 depending on rarity during his prime years. I remember at the time thinking that buying an auto of a Pirate for $35 seemed like a lot of money. It is amazing how success can change the card market. Even the most common Andrew McCutchen auto sells for $50 bucks now. How times do change.
