Not card related, but we finally bought tickets to the Cardinals / Mariners series in June after much brow-beating by the little guy. Even at eight, Isaac has a long term view of things and begged for tickets to see future HOF-er Ichiro as this may be the last time he's in St. Louis prior to retiring. Even better, a friend of ours pitches BP for the Cardinals and will have passes for us to be on the field for both BP sessions! As with the Wrigley Field trip this month, stay tuned for pics.
Well, I guess its slightly card related. St. Louis area McDonald's ran a promo this month where certain value meals came with random baseball cards and each card came with a discount off of Cardinal tickets. We used the $20 off per ticket code to save $80 on Field Boxes for the Mariners game!
Here are five of the nine cards we have so far. Plenty of doubles if anyone wants 'em.
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.
