For Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cards, the official MLB site has a decent selection. Click on Baseball Cards in the top navigation bar, then in the left column select Pittsburgh Pirates in the "Select Player Set" scrollbar.
If you're looking for gold signature cards, OnlineSports has them.
But, unless you're in a hurry and just want to make a quick purchase (as a gift, perhaps), I recommend you go to eBay instead. You will find more choices and better deals.
Here are some live eBay auction prices for Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cards:
If you're a baseball card collector, and don't already have it, pick up this year's Beckett Baseball Card Price Guide. You should also subscribe to Beckett Baseball Card Monthly magazine to keep up with the latest prices.
Beckett's is the most popular guide, but if you collect unusual cards, you might also want to pick up a copy of the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards. This has lots of listings.
By the way, if you want to sell your Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cards, eBay is still your best bet. Auctions have always been the best way to get top dollar for your cards, and now thanks to eBay's extremely active baseball card auctions, it's easy for anyone to auction off their collection. (A mainstream brick-and-mortar auction house will generally only deal with you if you have a large collection or some very valuable cards. And they'll take a percentage of the total sales, say 10 to 25 percent, for their service.) Click here for eBay, or eBay UK or eBay Canada if that's where you're located.
