A Picture is Worth a Lot of Cardinals

Back in May I attended a Peoria Chiefs game where they gave away a Yadier Molina canvas.  Being my entire family got one, I had a couple extras to trade/give away.  Brady from St. Louis Cardinals Cardboard was happy to take one off my hands.  What Brady sent in return was far more than what I expected.  To start with, he sent some extra 2015 Topps Archives he had from Nachos Grande's group break.

Brady finished the bases set, just leaving me 2 sps to track down.  This was more than enough for me to complete our trade, but Brady did not stop there.

Pujols just passed Mike Schmidt last night for 15th place on the all time home run list.  I do not hunt Pujols cards down like I used to, but still take them in trade. 

A couple of McGwire inserts and a nice Dizzy Dean from Ultimate Collection.  Not content with sending base cards and nice inserts, Brady also included some nice hits.

A trio of jersey cards from Cardinals outfielders.  Matt Holliday just returned from the disabled list, but has not been himself yet.  Jon Jay is still on the DL.  Last but not least, Brady included a 6 pack of autographs.

The 2 2012 Bowman Sterling autos are nice.  Patrick Wisdom is having a nice season in Double A.  He plays a good third base and has shown some power.  He might make it to Triple A before the end of the season.  The Cardinals traded James Ramsey to the Indians at the trade deadline last year for Justin Masterson.  He might not be more than a 4th outfielder, but that is more than the Cardinals got out of Masterson.  Great package from a fellow Cardinals fan, hope to trade again with Brady in the future.


  1. I am glad you could use them and I will keep my eyes open for cards on your want list.

  2. I forgot to add the Birds may need to call up Wisdom at some point-we shall see. Fun time in Cardinal Nation
