2 EBAY autos for the price of Juan

I have mentioned before how I like to collect certified autos of players in a Cardinals uniform.  This can range from the high end players like Stan Musial to the low end players like Stubby Clapp.  Today's post features 2 cards I bought on EBAY from the lower end. 

1996 Leaf Signature Extened Mike Gallego 
total cost $3.30

Gallego played with the Cardinals in 1996 and 1997 as a reserve infielder.  He was a productive member of the A's during the early 1990s, thus the reason why Tony LaRussa brought him to St. Louis even though he was toward the end of his career.

2015 Bowman Chrome Refractor 77/499 Juan Herrera
total cost $2.99

The Cardinals traded for Herrera during the 2013 season.  He was an All Star for the single A Peoria Chiefs in 2014.  He has a good glove and can run a little, but I am not sure he will ever reach the big leagues on a consistent level.  At least he looks like a big leaguer in this photoshopped card.
