The holiday season is almost here. Just 2 more days until the man in red appears. Today is my last full day of work this year. I have a few things to wrap up before we shut down at 4 today. I am looking forward to some down time in the next few days. I have quite a few cards to enter into my spreadsheets and file away. My hope is a good couple of hours will take care of everything. The filing never stops though thanks to the incoming trades like a recent one with TCDB member Burefreak. 7 new Cardinals arrived in a pwe on Monday.
It feels good to finish up my 2021 Topps Update team set. It was hard to resist not buying any at the local Walmart, but I managed. The Topps Archives Bazooka insert is a great looking card. Although he is a switch hitter, for some reason most of Carlson's cards show him batting lefthanded.
The other base card was from 2021 Absolute Retail. Still need a couple more to finish this rather bland looking set.
2 more great looking inserts finished up the package. The Molina 2020 Stadium Club Chrome Xfractor is a great shot of him tracking a foul ball. The Goldschmidt 2019 die cut reminds me of the Flair Hot Gloves inserts from the 1990s. It does not have a leather feel, but is textured. Panini did a nice job of hiding the logos on this one.
