I almost forget to open my mail that came Saturday while my son and I was in St. Louis. My wife laid it in my office that day, but put some junk mail over the card packages. Good thing The Bench member dlackey used a bubble mailer to ship my cards from our trade. A pwe may have ended up in the trash with the rest of the mail. I received a colorful Cardinals lot in return for some of the Topps Chrome refractors from the blaster break.
Who does not like a nice pink refractor. These are from the 2015 Topps Chrome set. Speaking of pink, it is almost October. I sure hope Bryan continues his Saving Second Base posts. It always brightens my day to see the lovely ladies he features.
I also scored a pink refractor from 2020 Chrome. I really hope DeJong comes back strong next year. He is a likeable guy who does a lot in the St. Louis community. He also has a great autograph.
My 2021 Topps Chrome set is down to needing just 1 card after receiving this Carlson. Topps has been busy cranking out the Carlson cards this year. I won't complain though. Inserts like the 2021 Bowman ROY Favorites are plentiful on the trade market.
