Adam Jones/Andrew McCutchen 2011 Tier One Dual Auto /25
I'm thankful that Cutch is a quick healer. After what looked to be a serious rib injury, Cutch only spent the minimum time on the DL. It couldn't have come soon enough as the Pirates were in the midst of their worst losing streak of the season. Thankfully it looks like we are getting healthy at the right time. Gerrit Cole is fresh off the DL and Neil Walker has been back in the everyday lineup. Should be a fun September.
I purchased this card for a few years back before Cutch autos exploded to outrageous prices. It has been a while since I've seen this card hit eBay. I believe I paid $40 to $50 at the time. I'm guessing it would go at least double that now. Prices have gotten to the point where I rarely search for the Bucco center fielder anymore.
Adam Jones continues to be a consistent force for the Orioles. The only knock on his game is the ability to take a walk. While this hurts his obp, his damage to contact ratio is very high. The Orioles and Royals are probably are the two biggest surprises of the season. I love Buck Showalter so I always root for the Orioles.
Let's go Bucs!
