Kerry, the great mind behind Cards on Cards, has become my dumping ground for all cards of Cardinals. I sent two packages to all the #SuperTraders last year to help me pare down my collection and all my Redbirds found a good home with Kerry. He sent me a padded mailer last week, and oddly enough, the contents looked really familiar to me.
Except for one glaring detail... no longer were the cards predominantly red, but instead they were now of players wearing blue.
Magic? Yeah, I think that's exactly it. Magic. I wish I had the power to turn all my Cardinals cards into Cubs cards. That would be a fun trick.
There were lots of cards in this package and many of them filled holes in my Cubs collection. I only have about a handful of cards from the 1986 Fleer set.
I always like the glossy All-Star insert set from Topps, and I kind of wish Topps went back to it instead of placing the All-Star players in the update set.
Greg Hibbard was a an average pitcher, but Flair was a beautiful set. So, you get a card of Greg Hibbard.
Nomar! Woo-Hoo! Another for the player collections!

If I had to collect one set from 2016 I think it would be Bowman Platinum.
The last card fills a big need in my new Cubs World Series Project. I'm trying to obtain one relic or autographed card of every key contributor to the Cubs World Series champion team.
What a fun assortment of cards, some of which I hope will also fill some holes in my Cubs FrankenSet.
Thanks, Kerry! I haven't bought any new cardboard of late, but once I obtain a padded mailer's worth of Cardinals on cards they'll be headed your way. 😀
