Something Old, Something New ...

Yesterday was a big mail day for me.  I received 2 pwe's and 2 bubble mailers all full of Cardinals.  This may not sound like a big day for some, but I do not buy a lot of new packs or purchase much on EBAY.  It is even harder to find time to trade this time of year with Little League games going on.  I bubble envelope contained an EBAY purchase, while the other 3 packages were trades.  Marc from Remember the Astrodome packed one of the pwe's with a wide variety of team set hits.

The 1974 Topps All Star card finished my team set.  The 1964 Topps Rookie Stars is my first card from that set.  Both these cards were in excellent shape.

These are my first 2015 Bowman cards.  The Matt Holliday looks like he is leading a cheer instead of sliding into home

More 2015 cards I did not have, this time from Gypsy Queen. 

Two nice inserts from 2015.  The Carpenter is the silver version, not sure if it was from hobby or retail packs.  The Wainwright is the retail Foil version.

Last but not least are some Topps stickers, one from 2014 and one from 2015.  I do not have any other Topps stickers from the past few years, but was thinking about buying some to break open with my 6 year old son.  He is starting to show some interest in collecting and for $1 per pack, you cannot go wrong.
