One of my favorite and most frequent trading partners is Ron B from the Trading Bases group. He collects Pirates for himself and Yankees for his son. He is able to find Cardinals on the cheap since he lives on the East Coast, while cards from his 2 teams are often found in the discount boxes at shows I attend. I also provide him with a few IP autos from the Pirates Triple A team in Indianapolis. I received a huge package from him this week in return for the Pirates autos from this post. He sent 60 cards from my wantlists. I will highlight the base cards in this post.
Hard to believe, but these are my first Cardinals from Topps Series 2. I think there are 5 more to track down.
I do have a couple of Museum cards this year. Rosy has had a rough 2016 in between losing the closer's roll and now being injured. I wonder how his agent Boras will lobby for a big payday now.
These cards alone would have made a nice package, but he also included about 30 inserts. Hope to highlight those in the next day or two.
