Rizzo Autos !!!

As most of you know by now, I collect several pitchers as well as Yankees. However, I do make exceptions sometimes. Anothony Rizzo is such an exception. Last summer I had the opportunity to attend a Cubs game while I was visiting Chicago. Against the Mets, Rizzo had a great debut for the Cubs and really got the crowd going in an otherwise fairly boring game. He had several hits and played a great game. Since then I have been following him a bit so when I noticed that Topps 2013 had several autos of Rizzo I thought it would be cool to own one.

And so it happened that a nice pakcage hit my doormat...oohh wait, 2 packages hit my doormat.....yes, in my quest to get an auto I bid one two different ones, clearly overestimating the popularity of mr Rizzo at the moment so I won them both ! Well, maybe this is the start of my first non-pitcher PC. Here they are !

Thanks for visiting my blog today !!


  1. At least they were different cards and not the same one!

    I picked them both up as well for what I thought was a pretty reasonable price.

  2. I pulled the second Rizzo AU in my case break. Come to think of it, I pulled tons of different Rizzo cards in the case break. Never heard of the guy until then.

  3. Great, more competition for Rizzo cards! From another continent even! Yikes!

    1. Nah, not really going to compete hard for his cards, just nice to have a few !

  4. I have the Brad Peacock Chasing the Dream Auto, they are very nice despite being stuck.
