Trade: Cervin' Up Cards

A few weeks back I sent Zippy Zappy a few Yankees for his collection.  I wasn't expecting anything in return but the master of the TTM auto sent a great package anyway.  If you are not following Cervin' Up Cards please do so now.  You won't regret it.  Check out the great Buccos.
The bottom row makes up some of the Pirates biggest prospects.  I really like the Polanco.  I'm disappointed that I didn't get to add more Polanco's to my collection before his callup but the prices were high. My hope is that I'll be able to add some autos in the offseason.  Alen Hanson is a middle infield prospect whom I'm hoping will help in the near future.  The Pirates are pretty slim at middle infield.  Josh Bell is probably the hottest Pirate prospect right now.  He has been getting a lot of great press lately as a multiple tool power hitting corner outfield.  I wonder if a position change is in the cards for him as the Pirates seem pretty set for the future in the outfield.
A trifecta of Reese McGuire cards.  McGuire is a highly touted catcher who was drafted last year out of high school.  His defense was advanced for his age so hopefully he will continue to develop and make his way through the system quickly.
Dinesh Patel and Rinku Singh were the subjects of the movie Million Dollar Arm.  I still need to see that movie.
Some mini cards of Walker and Grilli.  Nice to see Jason Grilli doing well in LA.  Change of scenery seemed to work for him.
One of my all time favorite Pirates.  I have a ton of Bay cards, but I do not have this parallel.  I'm pumped Zippy threw this one in.  It is numbered /99.
I was hoping Neil Walker would have some more auto releases for 2014, but there has been nothing yet. Walker was on pace to shatter all of his career records, but injuries have slowed him down over the past month.
A really nice Luis Cruz auto.  

Thanks so much for the cards Zippy.  I need to find you some Arods so we can deal again.  

Have a great weekend.  


  1. Love the Patel and Singh cards. I need to add a couple things of those guys to my collection.

  2. Kenny is all over those minor league sets

    1. He hit a ton of the big names for the Pirates. Polanco, Hanson and Mcguire are all top prospects.
