Andrew McCutchen 2013 Topps Update ‘Franchise Forerunners’ w/Gerrit Cole
These ‘Franchise Forerunners’ are pretty sweet. And while I am not certain that I have seen each and every one that is part of the set, I have seen enough to know that I prefer the ones that feature current teammates to a current and former player that simply happened to play on the same team.
For the ones that pair two current teammates, the card kind of feels like an old Topps ‘Team Leader’ card from the 1980’s.
This is the Pittsburgh Pirates card from the 2013 Topps Update set. Thankfully, it puts Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole together.
Due to their similarities, it would be fun to see a card with McCutchen paired with Roberto Clemente. But for this ‘Forerunners’ card, I like that match-up that Topps gave us.
A very nice addition to my McCutchen PC!
