Collecting Matt Boyd 2017 Topps Update

Topps 2017 Update Base released the other day, and there's one card, well cards, that I'll try to acquire... every variation of Card #82 of Detroit Tigers LHP Matt Boyd.

Matt has become my favorite Tigers pitcher now, as Justin Verlander has gone onto Houston,  and  starting with tomorrow's card show here in Kalamazoo, I'm going to try and acquire every version of Matt's  #82 Topps Update card...and as many Boyd cards as possible.

According to Beckett that means 10 cards...

Regular Base

Rainbow Foil ( 1 in 10 packs)


Black (#/66)

Father's Day (#/ 50)

Mother's Day (#/50)

Memorial Day (#25)

Printing Plates (1/1)

Platinum (1/1)

The last 2 issues will be a most daunting task... the 1/1 cards will obviously be very hard to find...but I'm going to give it my best shot.

I have limited income, so I may have trade for the card..and that will be awesome as well...the BLACK variation is already on for $9.99... and I hope that when I can get it it's around that price.

Matt is kind of special to me, as my middle name is Boyd.

So, if you buy, or have bought, the Topps Update cards, and come across a Matt Boyd variation, I hope you'll think of me I  any impending trades or sales...thanks in advance.

Play Ball!

Happy Baseball Birthday... Andrew McCutchen

A quick Happy Baseball Birthday! post to Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder  Andrew McCutcheon, who turns 31 years young today.

I wanted to give a shout out on McCutcheon's Birthday to honor one of my favorite  blogs, Collecting Cutch, who's posting every day to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

1 in 8 women will get Breast Cancer, and you can get all the information you need RIGHT HERE.

Every day over at Collecting CUTCH you'll find a post with Breast Cancer info, a beautiful celebrity picture to help all us guys remember why we want a cure found, and a PINK ANDREW MCCUTCHEON Baseball card.

My Celebrity to post is the beautiful Sofia Vergara from Modern of my favorite celebrities for sure.

..I posted Sofia because she's married to actor Joe Manganiello, who'said a huge fan of Pittsburgh sports...the Pirates, Steelers, and Penguins

I don't own a Pink Cutch card, so I found this one on good Ole Google.

McCutcheon is one of my favorite baseball players, a 5-tool player who can absolutely take over a game single handedly.

Head on over to the Cutch won't be disappointed.

Play Ball!
