I returned home from vacation this past weekend to find a package from Matt who writes The 5 B's blog. Matt won a recent contest I had and decided to send a thank you, even though none was required.
I love the look of this 2015 Stadium Club Matt Holliday. Stadium Club continues to provide great photography that you do not get with other Topps issues. I do not have any other Cardinals base from this set, so this was a nice start.
These 2014 Allen & Ginter cards also have a nice look, minus the full bleed photo of Stadium Club. I was sad to see Shelby Miller traded, but glad he did make the All-Star team. Wish the Braves could give him more run support so his record reflected how well he has pitched.
Matt included 2 nice inserts of a couple of former Cardinals. Pujols is having a nice bounce back year, as is Motte. Motte is a great guy off the field, having started his K Cancer foundation. I am sure some of you have seen the backwards K shirts in your favorite team colors. Motte helped start that program while he was recovering from Tommy John surgery in 2013.
