The Pirates are a couple years removed from having Neil Walker on the active roster. Supposedly the Bucs had made an offer to keep him around, but the two sides could never come to terms. Kind of weird that Walker had to settle for so little this offseason, but I'm sure the Yankees didn't mind. Hard to believe that more teams weren't interested at one year 4 million. While never the most durable he has been crazy consistent over the past 7 years. 2-3 WAR players don't grow on trees.
2013 Topps Mini Neil Walker 1/1
I don't actively search for Walker cards these days. My collection has most of the rookies and key autographs. Most of my needs are parallels which I don't actively chase.
The card above sort of just fell into my lap. I was searching around for some trade bait and discovered a seller that was auctioning off a bunch numbered Topps mini cards. Turns out he had a 1/1 Platinum Walker. For $10.50 I was able to add it to my collection. While nothing special looks wise it is always fun to add a rare card for a good price.
Thanks for reading.
