Here are the promised Helmar pics. Click on the images to view the larger versions (average size of 1.5MB each so they may take a few seconds to load). I grouped them as much as possible. I didn’t realize the copier was cutting off the edges on card in the leftt and top rows until the last scan and didn’t feel like rescanning everything.

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.
