2013 Panini Black Friday-Evan Gattis

Along with the stack of Triple Threads that I recently acquired, I also picked up a few rookie cards of one of my favorite players, Evan Gattis.  In due time, I will post about each of them.  The first one comes from Panini’s Black Friday set.

2013 Panini Black Friday #43, Evan Gattis

Gattis Rookie Card-Black Friday

Numbered 271/299, this card shows Gattis in full catcher’s gear, so that definitely earns points with me.  In addition, the fact that no airbrushing had to take place makes this card even better.  This is the kind of approach Panini should take with more catchers.

“El Oso Blanco” is currently on the 15-day disabled list.  And it is a shame, as he was putting up some monster numbers: .290/342/558 with 16 HR and 39 RBI’s.  Those numbers are from a catcher, who usually hits 5th in the batting order.

Gattis is an incredible catcher is fun to watch.  Hopefully, he will return to full health after the all-star break.
