Trading is a Habit

Last post I mentioned receiving 2 large bubble envelopes in one day.  The second was from Robert at $30 a Week Habit .  I sent him a few Blue Jays a while back and he responded with more than enough Cardinals in return. 

 First is a nice group of Chrome cards.  The Miles is #ed to 559, the Adams a refractor, and the Martinez a Xfractor.

From the shiny to the colorful.  I love the looks of the 2014 Topps Red Sparkle cards.  The green tint are not bad either.  Wish Miller was still pitching for the Cardinals, but it is nice to see him doing well for the Braves.

Gold is always is nice color to get.  A pair of 2011 World Series MVP David Freese cards along with a Trevor Rosenthal.

Always love Ozzie cards, even ones without logos.  This 2015 Donruss Press Proof did not scan the best, has a lot nicer glossy finish.

Matt Holliday had his on base streak end last night with an ejection over a called third strike.  At least he will always have a World Series ring from 2011.

Last but not least is a 2001 SP Rick Ankiel jersey card.  Ankiel is a great story, turning from stud pitcher to outfielder.  I often think what he might have been if Larussa had not started him in Game 1 of the 2000 Division Series with a backup catcher.
