On December 7th, the Cubs signed former Rockies pitcher Tyler Chatwood to a 3-year, 38 million dollar contract. I knew nothing about this pitcher but if the Cubs were willing to spend that much money on him, I figured I’d better invest in him too. I hopped on eBay the next day and found a lot of his cards that had a best offer. It was priced at $19.99 but they sold to me for $12.99 + shipping.
Despite the auction claiming it to be a rookie lot, it technically was not. Beckett has his rookie cards limited to 2011 even though these cards say 1st Bowman or Bowman Chrome cards. Not a big deal as I just wanted some cards of his just in case he turns out to be a solid addition to the team. There are a couple refractors and a gold card along with an autograph. I don’t have many autographs in my collection so it’s always nice to add a new one.
