Here's a box break we did at the Winter Warm Up. Let me know if you are interested in trading. We opened boxes of 2005 Topps Gallery and 2006 Upper Deck F/X too. No videos, but will try to scan the hits for trades.
Hello and Happy New Year! Back in 2012 after a fall break. Baseball in St. Louis has had its ups and downs this fall but things in 2012 are looking up. We are going to the Cardinals Winter Warm Up in two weeks and hope to get plenty of autographs, open plenty of packs, and maybe even take a picture with the World Series trophy.
Lets start the New Year right with a reminder of the World Series - confetti from the celebration!!!
Here are two cool Cardinal relics from 2010 Pro Debut. I like that these cards are numbered and have giant jerseys on them. I think these will be perfect for autographs at the next Cardinals Winter Warm Up.
Eduardo Sanchez 187 of 299 – Sanchez made a splash earlier this year out of the bullpen but has been out with shoulder problems for the last two months.
Francisco Samuel Gold 25 of 25 – Samuel is supposed to be our closer in a couple of years but has been passed by Fernando Salas, Lance Lynn and Sanchez.
Let’s just hope they can give us what this guy has since 2006. Get well Waino!!!
Isaac is Nine, a huge Cardinal fan and rabid baseball card collector. His parents (ok... his Dad) indulge this habit to the extreme resulting in boxes upon boxes of doubles. All this nonsense has rubbed onto his dad who has also started collecting cards again after a 20+ year layoff. This blog lists the cards we have for trade and any needs / wants Isaac may have to complete a set. In general, he loves getting packages of Cardinal cards in the mail.
Update: It had to happen. Isaac started a favorite player binder for non-Cardinals: Grady Sizemore, Nick Markakis, and, much to his Dad's chagrin / amusement, Ryan Braun. Go figure.
