2005 Topps Finest Jack Wilson 1/1
Here is another card from the mid 2000's. I've owned this Jack Wilson 1/1 for a long time. He was never a high seller on eBay so if I recall correctly I grabbed it not long after the 2005 set released for a reasonable amount. A glove first shortstop, Jack manned short for the Bucs from 2001-09. The Pirates have had a hard time trying to fill Jack's shoes since he was traded to the Mariners. I'm hoping Jordy Mercer continues to progress to stop the shortstop carousel.
Two big series right before the All Star break for the Buccos against the Cardinals and the Reds. The Pirates have made some headway in the standings and now are only 4 1/2 games out of first. Lets hope the Cardinals continue to struggle so we can finally catch up to those pesky Brewers.
