Andrew McCutchen card #68 2016 Panini Diamond Kings #56

  • I've seen a few cards of Cutch without his armband on the right arm.  Love the detail by the artist ensuring that the armband was on this portrait.
  • The bio on the back mentions Andrew's gold glove, silver slugger awards and MVP award, but the quote goes into detail about the Roberto Clemente award that he won in 2015.  Andrew really is the face of the franchise in Pittsburgh, both on the field and in the community, and it would be a big mistake to trade him.
  • Career home run #68 for Andrew was hit 7/8/2012 off of San Francisco's Tim Lincecum.  It was a 2 run shot that broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the 1st.  The Pirates would score a run in 7 of the 8 innings that they batted, and routed the Giants 13-2.
