Trade with the Commish

I have often wondered how collectors choose their user names on various sites they belong to.  My go to one is rl16.  rl is for Ray Lankford, 16 was his main uniform number.  Every now and then you will find one that is pretty clever.  Such was the case with my latest trade on TCDB.  Sportzcommish sound like cool name for a fantasy league player, but it also works for a card collector.  He does know his cards, as he sent me 8 different ones packed into a PWE.
This oversized 1986 Donruss card just fit into the envelope.  It still arrived in flawless shape.

Bowman Draft sets from the early 2000s can be difficult to track down.  These 2 from 2001 knocked my set needs down to one.  The Stubby Clapp is my favorite.  He has done a wonderful job of managing Triple A Memphis the last 2 years.  After winning the Pacific Coast League title last year, the  Redbirds will begin play in it again on Tuesday night.

Chrome is always good, whether it be Bowman Draft, Bowman or Topps.  The Duncan and Narveson completed team sets.

The Cardinals had a ton of rookie relievers in the early 2000s, some good, some not so good.  Lambert was part of the later group.  He never did advance to St. Louis.  Simontacchi had a few good years in St. Louis before bouncing around the majors.  He served as a minor league pitching coach for the Cardinals from 2013-2017 before taking a job in the Royals farm system.
