Stance Swing Run

2011 Triple Threads is one of my all time favorite sets.  It was one of the first high end releases to feature the likes of Neil Walker, Jose Tabata, Pedro Alvarez and Garrett Jones.  I have around 50 unique hits from this set mostly due to one eBay seller getting rid of his collection a few years back. I was assisted by the fact the seller ended all the auctions early in the morning.

The above McCutchen's feature all three variants in the jersey parallel that was numbered to 9.  I think the only other player in which I completed all three versions is Jose Tabata and that was numbered to 50.  I've been on a dry spell trying to find some final pieces to my collection.  Hopefully the next few months I will see some progress on filling some holes.  The nice thing is that McCutchen is the only expensive person to add.  All the other Pirates can be had for less than $5 a card.  

I'm getting excited about the wildcard game Wednesday.  Don't think I'm going like last year, but I will be watching nervously.  Should be a great game.  

Let's Go Bucs!

  1. Nice additions. I don't collect a lot of relic cards unless I find them cheap, but those are awesome.

    Good luck to the Pirates on Wednesday. I can't think of a National League team I'd rather see in the World Series.

    1. I just hope the gamble of using Cole on Sunday doesn't bite us in the butt. Volquez has been good lately, but Cole has proven to be a beast this time of year.

    1. I hope so. We beat up Bumgardner pretty good the only time we faced him this year, so maybe we can do it again.

    Good luck vs the Giants!

    1. You would go crazy and broke trying to finish them all. I'm only going after the ones in which I have two already from my big eBay purchase. I like the stadium background in each of the cards.

      I think every Pirate fan is scared that Volquez is getting the start.
