Today we'll take a gander at the cardboard side of the trade. This part of the trade is not safe for consumption, but they are just as tasty . . . at least as far as baseball cards go!
I miss Jake Arrieta. Man, was he a fierce competitor!
This one is from Panini's 2016 Donruss Jersey Kings insert. Nice card design.
Warning: do not watch if you are a fan of the Brewers. Also, watch the third base coach give him the stop sign. I guess the stop sign was merely a suggestion.
Baez... I'd say his instincts and baseball IQ are really top notch. Tags of runners, slides into bases, acrobatic defensive plays, and base running instincts are all things that make him really fun to watch.
Last card, and for this we go back to 2017 Diamonds Kings:
Kerry Wood, that I'm aware of is from 2013. This is a sweet card with lots of Kid K mojo! Sketches & Swatches is an excellent concept and I love the alliteration. The pin stripe is gorgeous, but it's not to be outdone by Kerry's signature. Did I mention this card is serial numbered? Oh yeah, it's 08/20. Boom! What a card!
Thanks for the fantastic beer and card trade, Matt! One of my favorite things to do during the summer is to enjoy a beer, flip through my card collection, and watch a Cubs game. You've given me lots of material to work with. Thanks again!
