2017 Diamond Kings David Freese Auto/relic /15
Once I found out this card existed I had to have it. The bad thing is that the prints runs on this card are super low so prices have been surprisingly high. Thankfully after a little back and forth with a seller it was mine for around $11.
I'm always excited when role players get their first auto or relic with the Buccos. Obviously David Freese signed a lot as a Cardinal (and this may be a sticker dump from that time), but I don't care. This card says Pittsburgh so it counts!
Freese signed with the Pirates during Spring Training right before the 2016 season. It turned out to be a very important signing for the Buccos as injuries at third and poor production at first lead to a ton of playing time for Freese. He played so well that the Pirates gave Freese a 3 year extension. That deal also turned out to be very important with Jung Ho Kang's legal troubles.
Freese's auto is pretty interesting.......
Thanks for reading!
