Lucas Giolito & Carlos Rodon Limited Edition 16×20

Unfortunately I didn’t see Lucas Giolito’s no-hitter, but I did watch Carlos Rodon’s no-hitter. It was one of my 10 favorite games I’ve ever watched.

I’ve been trying to collect autographed final pitch 16x20s from all of the recent Sox no-hitters and perfect games. Mark Buehrle, Phil Humber, and those two most recent gems. But Fanatics recently released an incredible limited edition 16×20 that is even better.

Limited to only 100 signed copies, this 16×20 is now one of my favorite 16s in my entire collection. It cost more than I usually spend on autographs, especially of current players, but I couldn’t resist. It’s a beautiful, simple design, and the autographs are big, bold, and well placed. I can’t wait to get this bad boy framed!

9 New Carlos Rodon Cards

In honor of his first All-Star game, here are the 9 new Carlos Rodons I picked up as part of the bountiful lot I’ve been posting. Let’s hope he gets to pitch in the game (either Rodon or Lynn should be starting, grrr) and he mows down every batter he sees.
