Jim Edmonds 2002 Playoff: Another Oddball Relic

My dad brought this home from one of his business trips. He covered most of the card and asked me to guess what type of relic this was. It was a shoe!!!

Here’s the back of the card:

Does anyone know if there are wrist band relic patch cards from this product?

2010 Bowman Gold and Blue. The blue is numbered 435 of 520 and is close to the light blue the Cardinals used to wear.

2011 Topps Series Two Jumbo Pack

My dad picked up a jumbo pack on a business trip. Mostly base and I didn’t get anything cool with the Diamond code card but there was one cool card:

Harmon Killebrew Leather Nameplate
2011 Topps S2 Killebrew Nameplate

I’ll trade this for a similar Cardinals nameplate if anyone has one.

2009 Donruss Americana

I did a pack break of packs I won playing a dice game at last month’s Flea Market. I also won a blaster of 2009 Donruss Americana that my mom and I opened when we got home. I really didn’t want the box and hoped for a baseball blaster but the man at the booth thought I’d like it. I didn’t really like the cards but I did like this card:

John Wayne Relic numbered 33 of 500
2009 Donruss Americana Wayne Relic 33 of 500

I don’t really know who he is but the adults thought it was pretty cool.

My First Pack Of 2011 Ginter: A Retail Rack Pack

My mom bought me my first pack of 2011 Allen & Ginter at Target last week. No Cardinals, but there was this:
2011 AG Granderson Bazooka 16 of 25a

Not just any mini. A Bazooka mini hand numbered 16 of 25!
2011 AG Granderson Bazooka 16 of 25b
I’ll trade this for a Cardinals Bazooka mini if anyone has one.

Orlando Box Break: 2002 Topps Chrome Series 2

We found a super cheap box of 2002 Topps Chrome at the flea market last month. My dad made me wait until vacation to open it so we'd have something to do during my sister's dance competition routines. I was hoping for a Joe Mauer rookie card but didn't get one.

2004 Play Ball Pujols Relics

2004 Play Ball Albert Pujols Jersey numbered 14 of 50.

2004 Play Ball Pujols Jersey 14 of 50

This was a cheap ebay pick up last month. that was made even better when we found this card in the package. This is a 2004 Play Ball Pujols Bat card numbered 25 of 25. The seller included it as a freebie as the card was slightly damaged. You can barely make out a slight crease in the lower right point in the star.
