Glimmer of Hope


Albeit small, the Pirates do have a glimmer of hope for the division. According to Fangraphs the Pirates have about a 10% shot of winning the division. At the very least they control their own destiny since the margin is 3 games. The Pirates are entering a 3 games series with the Cardinals beginning tonight and finish with the Reds. If the Cards win the series it would mathematically eliminate the Pirates and we will be on a collision course with Jake Arrieta and the Cubs. Arrieta is very good at throwing baseballs that are hard to hit. I would much rather not face him.



2015 Immaculate Andrew McCutchen/Giancarlo Stanton Dual Patch /10

I've had a lot of success picking up cards from this years Immaculate. It had one of the better Pirate checklists of the year. I have a nice backlog of cards to showoff from this set, but I was really excited about this dual patch.

Obviously it is always a big deal to pick up a nice new Cutch, but being featured with Giancarlo Stanton made me want this card that much more. I'm a huge Stanton fan and could watch videos of him destroying baseball all day.

Here is a nice sample.


This card cost me around $20 which seemed reasonable considering Cutch cards are through the roof. At least being unlicensed allows me to find a deal every now and again.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I only watched homer #10 from the Stanton video. I refuse to believe that he's hit 9 other homers further than that one. Not. Possible.

    1. You should google "Stanton Planet Hoagie homerun." That might be my favorite because of the announcers reaction.

  2. Stanton man, he's been out for months and yet he's still in the top 10 of a lot of NL only offensive categories.

    1. He is a freak. I wish he played somewhere else other than Miami. Could you imagine Colorado?

  3. The guys working in Planet Hoagie need to be on alert whenever Stanton comes to the plate.

  4. It's such a bummer Stanton hadn't been able to finish off the last two seasons. He's awesome to watch. Great card though!

    1. I would pay to watch him play. He looks like a linebacker.

  5. Wow, that's a high-end patch of two certified superstars! Don't know how you find (and afford) all that great stuff of Cutch.
