Big Mike Big Relics

I still collect Michael Pineda cards, even though he stinks. He's been pitching significantly better over the last six starts, but prior to that he was one of the worst starters in baseball. He's frustrating because the ability is there, he just isn't consistent.

However, I wouldn't be a very good fan if I only collected him during the good times.

In fact, with his struggles, his cards are once again cheap as hell. I snagged these two 2016 Topps Tier One relics for the minimum bid. The first is the standard relic, and the second is the dual, numbered to 50.
These cards aren't that memorable, but still, Tier One is a product I'll never buy, so it's nice to pick up a few cards to see what it's all about. The pill-shape relic reminds me of the Doctor Mario video game from back in the day. Either way, I'm sure the box breaker didn't make his money back on these relics!
