Joe Sakic card #311 1998-99 Crown Royale Pivotal Players #5

  • Post #888 on this blog tonight, so I decided to go with the player that made me start this up.  
  • Love this  card, it's hard to believe that it's a Pacific design.  Especially for Crown Royale, which is usually one of Pacific's flashier products.
  • Market watch:  6 copies of this card currently on COMC, ranging from 63 cents to $1.10.  Maybe it's because this post is happening during the COMC summer sale, but this is surprisingly cheap for a Crown Royale card.
  • Career goal #311 came 10/15/97 vs. the Oilers.  It was the Avs 5th goal of the game, scored on the PP and helped them to a 6-2 win.  This kept their unbeaten streak going to 7 games at the start of the 97-98 season.  Curtis Joseph was in the nets for the Oilers that night.

Andrew McCutchen card #120 2018 Donruss Teal parallel #159

  • Once again I've caught up; all the McCutchen cards that I have for my collection have been posted to the blog.
  • Love the teal parallels, this one is serial #'d 14/199.
  • Market Watch:  Just one copy of this version on sale right now, listed at 95 cents (52% off for the summer sale).  If I didn't have one already I'd jump on that price.  There's a copy on ebay right now that's showing a BIN of $6.95. 
  • Still have yet to get a McCutchen card featuring him in a Giants uniform.  Maybe down the road I'll hunt for one of those.

Andrew McCutchen card #119 2011 Topps Chrome #8

  • It's funny what you can find when you dig through piles and piles of cards.  This was one of approximately 10 PC cards I found on a recent dig.
  • The 2011 set is probably my favorite design so far this decade.  It just appeals to me more than all of the other sets over the past 8 years.
  • Market watch:  21 copies currently on COMC, ranging from 44 cents to $1.05.  Not bad really, no cards with outlandish prices...
  • I'm sure Cutch is glad that July is gone.  .227 average with 2 HR and 7 RBI for the month isn't going to cut it...
