In early January I got an email from Henry of (Cardboard Greats) saying he came into the below card.
2017 Bowman's Best Shane Baz Auto
Henry asked if I was interested. YES!!!! I asked Henry to hold off sending me the card right away as I was so far behind with trades that I had no idea when I could fire off a return package. The timing turned out perfect as this card arrived last week and my return package should get to Henry tomorrow or Thursday.
Shane Baz was the Pirates first round pick last year and from most accounts has impressed with his skill set. I really don't get too excited about pitching prospects until they hit AA, but it is always nice to see consensus across the board that the hype is real.
I'm hoping at some point Baz has a stop in Morgantown so I can see him in person. After the draft last year he spent most of this time in instructional league to limit innings.
Please give Henry a follow if you haven't already. He makes for a great trade partner as his player collections are vast. Thanks for the trade!
Thanks for reading.
