I know quite a few bloggers also use other sites on the internet for trading. I am a member of 3: The Bench, Trading Bases, and Trading Card Database. Last week I proposed a trade to TCDB member IndyBean17 without knowing it was Kin who runs the blog I Feel Like a Collector Again. Small card world we have sometimes. His package of Cardinals arrived in yesterday's mail.
Mr Brock is my first Topps Fire card. I like the cards, but do not have a Target within an hour's drive so I will be trading for all the Cardinals. Wainwright is only my third 2017 Topps Chrome card.
The Pham is a foil parallel from 2016 Series 2. It was nice to see Pham have a healthy season, but I have my doubts if he will put up the same 20-20 numbers he did this year. I will say it is good to see a player speak his mind. Pham is not afraid to praise himself or criticize the team the team if they deserve it.
I now have 2 Cardinals from the 2011 Heritage Minors set. I wish I could find a nice dime or even a quarter box with these.
My scanner did not pick up the gloss on this 1987 Fleer Glossy card. I had some of these sitting in my doubles box that I had mistaken for regular cards. I should take some time this winter to go through the rest of my Cardinals doubles to make sure I did not miss any other parallels.
