This was a pretty big get for the Bay collection. Bay has the biggest footprint in my Pirates collection so when I find a card to add it is usually of the high end variety. Bay found himself on several variations of this card, but they are super tough finds because they feature the likes of guys like Albert Pujols.
Obviously the big name on this card is Cabrera, but when he is featured as a Marlin it keeps costs affordable. The card ran me around $42 which seemed reasonable considering the set and scarcity.
Also, I looked back at Hafner's stats. While his peak was short, he really dominated in the mid 2000s. He had 3 consecutive 5 War seasons. At the time this card was made he was quie the force.
One of these days I'll get around to showing off some more Bay's. Pretty much the only ones I've shown are recent purchases. I have 100's back logged! Maybe if trade posts and recent acquisitons dry up they can be my posting security blanket.
By the way this is the first post I've done while in flight!
