We had the Cardinals in Nachos Grande May Group Break and he really, really came through for us. If you follow his blog at all you probably know all about this card but I wanted to post a bigger picture of it here. Its really is awesome. His 2002 Stadium Club box was loaded with Cardinals and it starts here:
2002 Albert Pujols Clubhouse Exclusive Dual Relic – The odds of pulling this type of card are 1 in 2073 packs. The odds of getting this Pujols card must be crazy!
If that weren’t enough, the box also had this Jim Edmonds Born In The USA jersey card.
There were also three gold cards. These are thicker than the regular cards and have gold lettering. (Dad – The third card was J. D. Drew. Drew wore the Birds on the Bat but he was never a Cardinal. The best thing he ever did for us was play lousy enough to be traded for Adam Wainwright. I’ve decided to impose a J. D. Drew quota on this blog. Maximum of one J. D. Drew card per year. Scroll down for 2011’s card.)
Nachos also opened three other boxes. These are my first 2000 Topps Tek cards.
1999 Upper Deck HoloGrFX
1999 Fleer Mystique. The Drew is a Rookie card numbered 1552 of 2999.
