Andrew McCutchen card #27 2012 Gypsy Queen Sliding Stars #SS-AM

  • Love the look on Andrew's face in this photo.  It's as if he's holding his breath and just about to burst.
  • Bio on the back:  "Only 17 Pirates have stolen 3 or more bases in a game.  McCutchen has already done it twice in three seasons".  He's only stolen 6 in 2016, and unless he goes on a bit of a tear in the final couple of weeks, this will be his first season that he doesn't steal in double digits.  
  • Andrew needs just 3 more HRs to pass Barry Bonds for 4th on the all time Pirates list.  He will not catch Stargell (475) and probably not Kiner (301), but Clemente is very reachable (240).  Andrew is currently at 174.
  • Ding-a-ling.  Look at that ding in the top left corner.  For shame...
