Andrew McCutchen sent an Egraph to Wiz this year

A Special Gift from Egraphs for Pittsburgh Pirates Fans


An egraph is a shared moment between you and your favorite star. It is immortalized forever with a beautiful high resolution photograph, handwritten note, autograph, and personalized voice message. It’s his voice, his handwriting, his time — every egraph is one-of-a-kind.  Share it, print it, play it … whatever you want – it’s your egraph.

Don’t you really want to get something cool this year for the Pittsburgh Pirates fan in your life?   Or maybe you just want to reward yourself, you selfish son-of-a-gun.

We know that you hate standing in line to wait for anything.  And you probably suck at buying presents, so Egraphs wanted to do something very cool for three RumBunter readers.   Think of it as a thank you for for reading this nonsense we crank out everyday.

Some of you might never want to ask your favorite Pirates player for an autograph, now you don’t have to.  Some of you might have someone close to you in your family who can’t make it out to get an autograph from their favorite Pirates player, now you can do something very special this holiday season.

Here’s the deal, the autograph has gone new school.   Here is how it works:  enter the contest below, three winners will get to select their favorite player’s picture, send them a note, and then share your Egraph all over the planet.

We think they are obviously easier, and a lot more personal if you write a well thought note, than the old school autograph.

Egraphs rolled out around the All-Star break, using technology to extend the autograph business from the age-old methods of sending a baseball card to the clubhouse, or leaning across that outfield railing at Bradenton screaming your favorite players name.

Head over to their site to see all of their roster, or check out some of our favorites below:

So here is how the contest works.  In the comments below tell us your favorite Pirates memory from this season:  ours is easy–Cocktailsfor2 getting a fist bump from Clint Barmes.  It was hilarious, especially when the cameras at Wrigley showed the host of the RumBunter podcast calmly chugging a fine pilsner after his brush with the smoothness himself, Clint Barmes.

Now tell us your favorite Pirates memory of the 2012 season in the comments below and get yourself an egraph from your favorite Major League Baseball star.  Three winners will be selected from the entries on the day after Thanksgiving.

    My favorite Bucs moment was Pedro Alvarez launching bomb after bomb in that game in Wrigley field! He definitively showed why he’s capable of carrying a team’s offense and gave us IMMENSE hope for the future. That performance gave me goose bumps! Go Bucs!

    From a humerous standpoint I will go with when Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle called an X-Box a ‘P-Box’ at PirateFest and he looked to me to correct him. On a serious note the Rod Barajas walk-off against the Washington Nationals. Here’s a guy that disappointed but in that one moment we all forgot and just celebrated. It was the most memorable walk-off for me and the [re]birth of the [love it or hate it] Zoltan.

    I was born and raised in Pittsburgh (my mother actually went into labor when she and my dad were at a double header between Pirates and Dodgers at Forbes Field). I vaguely recall as a toddler being in Forbes Field seeing Clemente play. And saw plenty of action in Three Rivers – hundreds of games for $1 admit back inthe day. But in 1986, I moved to Minnesota. Once a Bucco fan, always a Bucco fan, however. My office at work has 3 Pirate framed posters of the most 3 recent Series victories, and 2 photos of Clemente. I try to catch games when the Pirates are nearby, but it surely doesn’t happen often enough, and the travel and seating cost can be prohibitive at times. Yet, my son, although born and raised in Minnesota, is a true black and gold man himself too. So this year, I took him on a 7 city, 8 day baseball trip where we got to see one Bucco game – Pirates in Milwaukee – for one of our stops. Bucs win on Cutch homer. Gorkys gives my son autograph after the game (too bad his D is gone now). And we get our pic posted on Pirates facebook page by an MLB photographer. (I am told I was ridiculed by other fans on-line for wearing a Steelers t-shirt and Twins hat – but you go with what you got, not what you can have. dressed “right” or not, I was rooting for Bucs as I have always done). Son had more Bucco memories for his future too. Doesn’t get any better than that.
