Bench Trade

My first and most likely only trade for this week arrived yesterday courtesy of The Bench member DoubleAZ.  I sent a few 2021 Topps Home Run Challenge cards his way in return for 5 Cardinals.

It is nice that other collectors buy Topps online exclusive sets and break them up.  This Wainwright is from the 2021 206 set.  Topps sells these in 10 card packs for $14.99.   That is a little too rich for my collecting budget.


I am starting to see more Arendao cards in a Cardinals uniform.  I like the looks of this Series 2 1965 Redux insert other than the fact he has his eyes closed.  

The Panini portion of the trade features a lime green and pink parallel from 2020 Optic and a purple parallel from 2021 Donruss.  I like the Molina photo, but the blue catcher's gear does not go the greatest with the green border.

  1. That Arenado photo is a good one. You are right about the color on the Yadi card.
