David Kopp – 2008 Bowman Chrome Auto. Never heard of him so I told Isaac to look him up in his Cardinals prospects book. He said, without looking, that he wasn’t in the book. I told him to check the book… sure enough he wasn’t listed. The kid has a memory. He loves autographs since the Winter Warmup.
Amazingly, he may have been more excited about the Sizemore’s than the Pujols. I’m chalking it up to having a ton of Albert in his binder and only a few pages of Sizemore. How excited? Between the Sizemore & the autos he wanted to site down and write a thank you note to Dave!
Isaac is 12 (almost 13), a huge Cardinal fan and rabid baseball card collector. He's ready to blog on his own. His parents (ok... his Dad) indulge this habit to the extreme resulting in boxes upon boxes of doubles. This blog lists the cards Isaac has for trade and any needs / wants 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.
