2013 Panini America's Pastime Justin Wilson Book Auto /49
I've lost out on a couple of these cards over the years. It was probably for the better as now the shipping cost just as much as the card. I'm glad that it is finally mine because I love cards like this of obscure Pirates.
For those who don't remember the America's Pastime set it was based around receiving a book autos in every box. The weird thing about the set though was the dual book autos had some really weird combinations. Needless to say the set failed. A couple of years back Dave and Adams ran a super sell on these at over 50% off the original price tag. You could pick up singles for cheap on eBay.
As for the player....
Justin Wilson was never a high end prospect, but he was left handed and could throw really hard. He was a two pitch pitcher so he was destined for the bullpen even though he spent most of his time in the minors starting. He turned himself into a productive bullpen guy and has logged quite a bit of innings between stops in Pittsburgh, New York and the Tigers.
Thanks for reading.
