Cards on Cards, and I have swapped cards of our team's natural rivals. For my money, the Cardinals are one of the best ran franchises in all of sports, but I still don't want that cardboard sitting in my trade box. Especially when there's someone as generous as Kerry out there who is willing toss me some Cubs-goodness in exchange for my unwanted Redbirds.
Even better is the fact that Kerry resides in Portland, which I hear is sometimes referred to as P-town. P-town Kerry just doesn't roll of the tongue as easy as P-town Tom does though. But Kerry, if you want to try it, I'd be willing to back you with a name change.
On to the cards (of Cubs)!
I think Addison Russell has a great career ahead of him. I have a couple copies of his base chrome rookie card, but this is m first sepia parallel.
Here are some vintage-esque players, and darn good ones at that.
Stickers! Four of the past five years of Topps stickers were including in the yellow bubble mailer. Very nice!
Here's another mini modeled after the 1951 Topps insert set. I don't usually associate Rogers Hornsby with the Cubs, because he played eighteen years in St. Louis and only four in Chicago. But, he's wearing Cubs blue so no harm in adding this one to the collection!
Did you know that Carlos Marmol lead all pitchers in the number of games finished in 2010? Neither did I.
