Giancarlo Stanton PC
Giancarlo Stanton is headed to the Bronx. Wow, the Yankees are gonna have a hell of a team!
You gotta expect his overall cardboard interest/values will see a bump thanks to going from a team with hardly any card collectors (at least here on the cardsphere) to the most popular team in the game.
He was a top collecting guy of mine circa 2014/2015, but as is my collecting style, I cooled it on him once I hit one hundred different cards, giving myself "an out" since I collect so many different players n' things. Since there are basically no Marlins collectors out there, I ended up with a lot of his cards in trades.
I originally did a post for my Giancarlo PC way back on 4/24/15. But I've pretty much doubled the collection since then, so I figured I was due for an update. So now let's take a look at my Giancarlo Stanton collection as it stood the day he began Act 2 of his career.
Just a couple early cards.
A few RCs from 2010.
Part 1 of 2012, highlighted by my only auto of him, also pictured at the top of the post.
Part 2 of 2012.
Part 1 of 2013.
Part 2 of 2013.
Part 1 of 2014.
Part 2 of 2014.
Part 1 of 2015. The top left relic is a Christmas Card (12/25). The middle dual relic with Cutch is /10, a generous surprise from Matt Scott.
Part 2 of 2015. (Whoops.. looks like a dupe slipped by me in that Archetype insert that was also pictured in Part 1.)
2016. It's not often that manufactured relics move the needle for me, but I sure love those metal logo thingys.
2017. You can tell he was off my main wantlist by this year. Hell, I don't even have his flagship Topps card!
Here are some odds and ends. I couldn't read the super tiny text on the Chipz and didn't care enough to look up what year it was from. The "2008 Ginter" minis are Munnatawket customs. They're not dated, but must've been made sometime around 2014-2016. I made the Hostess custom and the middle sketchcard. The other sketchcard was a gift from Twitch.
So many doubles and triples! This is a big reason I had to take him off my wantlist. Just kept getting too many cards I already had. But yeah, these dupes are available for trade, so if any Yankees fan wants to jumpstart a PC of the guy, let me know. (SCC already called dibs on the Bowman RC.)
Looks like I've got somewhere around 175 different cards of the guy. Wow, that's gotta be one of my largest PCs. I think only my Gwynn collection is over 200 cards. Even if I'm not super active in collecting him anymore, I'd still be down for any Giancarlo cards in trade that aren't pictured in this post.
Thanks for reading. And best of luck to Mr. Stanton in the Big Apple. They're gonna be a tough team to beat.
