In person, on card:
2006 Topps Chrome Rookie Auto Sticker
2006 Topps Co-Signers Auto Sticker
2006 Upper Deck Special Something Or Other Auto Sticker
So what do you think? Wainwright definitely uses more room on the Relic card and the #50 inscription is nice too. The sticker autos, even though there is more room on them, seem rushed by comparison. They’re also eerily perfectly centered though!

Mom and Dad gave me two jumbo packs for Valentines Day this year. I got a couple of Cardinals including a Stan Musial Lost Card that Dad forgot to scan for this post. Here are three of the cooler inserts.
Geovany Soto Jersey. Ugh… another Cub relic. First Castro, now Soto. Its hard to make out in the picture but the jersey is actually dirty. Still pretty cool that there was a jersey and printing plate in the same pack though.
Clayton Kershaw Sparkle card. This is my first sparkle card.
These are up for trade for similar Cardinals or favorite players (Markakis, Roberts, Hamilton, Braun, Lincecum) printing plate, jersey or sparkle cards.
Dad – Jeez. I remember this design back from when I was a kid!

So… I decided to put my $20 where my mouth is and hit ebay to see what I could get for $20. I decided to only buy cards from a single seller to minimize shipping and handling which ended up being another $4.
I ended up with a good mix of Cardinals and Ike’s favorite players: 7 relics and one auto.
First, the favorite player – Grady Sizemore. 2004 UD USA Baseball Jersey numbered to 850, 2008 Sweet Spot Jersey, 2009 Topps Unique Jersey numbered to 275.
And now the Cardinals:
1999 Fleer Bob Forsch Auto, 2005 UD Origins Scott Rolen Jersey, 2007 Allen Ginter Scott Rolen Jersey, 2008 Donruss Ozzie Smith Jersey numbered to 99, 2010 Chicle Colby Rasmus Jersey

Thorzul showed us some Brewer’s cups and asked to see our cup collection. After all the awesome Cardinals he’s pulled in his box breaks for us we could not say no. These are all the big soda cups except for the 2008 treat cups.

2008 Cup listing the NL Leading 10 World Series Championships
2008 Treat Cup
2009 Play Like A Cardinal Cup

I think he’ll trade this for a Cardinals Goudey autograph if anyone is interested.

1969 Lou Brock World Series Home Run
1967 Curt Flood
1961 Curt Flood
1960 Curt Flood
1959 Curt Flood
The Flood streak ends with a 1959 Ken Boyer
And the stack ends with a 1952 Enos Slaughter!
Not a bad haul for $11.53! I just wish I could remember where I got these so I can go back on my next trip for another raid.

Anyway, the stack had five Cardinals team cards…

My mom and dad gave me a box of 2006 Ovation and I got a cool Chien Ming Wang autograph. I liked how he signed it in Chinese and not in English.
Santa gave me a jumbo box of 2010 Updates! Guess what I got? Yep – another Chris Heisey autograph!
To make up for it, I also got a cool Mel Ott black bat card.
I am keeping the Chien Ming Wang autograph. I liked the set and autograph so much my dad bought me two cheap boxes on ebay where I got a Ken Griffey Jr. autograph for the Winter Warm Up. I’d like to trade the Heisey autographs for similar Cardinals autographs. I’d also like to trade the Mel Ott for a Cardinals black bat card in case anyone has one.
These are all up for trade (Isaac is begging me to try to sell the Stanton on ebay). He's looking for Cardinals T206, Heritage, and Chicle chromes / colored refractors / autos in exchange. We'll probably go ahead and ebay the two autos if no one is interested.
