First – a numbered card of one of my favorite players.
Next – A gold refractor David Ortiz. I forget what this is numbered to.
Next – a Black Border card from the 2011 Topps set.
Last – a Dominic Brown autograph from 2011 Topps.
These are all up for trade. I’m trying to talk my Dad into letting me sell them on ebay though.

The Cardinals honored two HOF greats on Saturday and Sunday, offering fans a Red Schoendienst replica statue and – amazingly – the first ever Stan Musial bobblehead giveaway. I also took advantage of a coupon from the 2011 Winter Warm Up to buy some game used and stadium used memorabilia… more on that in another post.
And if you’re wondering where our seats are this year… here’s the view of the field.
And here’s the view to the right… aisle seats next to the Cardinals Bullpen!!! Here’s Carp warming up before Saturday’s game.

My sister had another dance competition last month and my dad surprised me again with a box of cards to open during the day. One routine = one pack. It was another box of 2006 Ovation. I got a numbered rookie Skip Schumaker card but the auto wasn’t as cool as the Griffey, Wang or Cabrerra autos from the other boxes. I’m keeping Schumaker – everything else is available for trade including the base cards.
Skip Schumaker Rookie #290 of 999
Mark Prior Jersey
Jeff Kent #6 of 499. I guess he might be a HOF’r some day?
Dave Gassner Rookie Auto #38 of 99
Dad – According to Baseball Reference, Dave Gassner debuted on April 16, 2005. His last game in the majors was April 21, 2005.

First – the base cards. Those throwback uni’s are great.
And one for CCC…
And now the autos…
Delmon Young #86 of 210
Vernon Wells #180 of 200
Billy Wagner Redemption – Ugh!
… and the last auto more than makes up for the redemption. Ryan Howard! One for Ike’s favorite player binder!!! #40 of 160.
And just for kicks – there’s nothing Platinum about the checklist cards.

It took my dad too long to scan this card from Thorzul’s March Group Break. We got a few Cardinals and a few Rays but nothing that can compare to this one: A Stan Musial Jersey Card from 2005 Throwback Threads. Its AWESOME!
Can’t wait to see what Cardinals he pulls this month!

Dad - Got a great deal on these boxes in February from Atlanta Sports Cards - my favorite place to pick up cheapo boxes for Isaac.
