Favorite Card of 2016 - Andrew Benintendi Topps Now #385

There may be a nonzero chance the image of Benintendi robbing a batter of a home run is re-used in a big league card in 2017 - but at the very least this was the first card to use this 'awesome outfield action' image and I had to wait only a month or so after the highlight for a card to be created, printed and be sent out.

Odds & Ends & Pins

Cards and things from Canada in all shapes and sizes. One of the joys of being a full on team collector is that you get to experience weird and wonderful oddballs that don't necessarily fit everyone's type of collection. In short, if it's got Cardinals on it in some way, it's something I am going to want. Show More Summary

Getting Back on the Horse with a Very Red PWE

On top of that, I haven't had much time for scanning in cards with the busy holiday season upon us. This combination has left me woefully behind in thanking folks who have sent me cards recently.

TTM autograph received: Joey Jay

I probably sent this request out at the beginning of 2012 and got it back the other day - I presume the lengthy hold up was due to an autograph promoter doing private signings with various retired players, who end up only signing through said promoter. Show More Summary

November's Loot

Another month in the books, another box from @thelootlocker to unpack. The Loot Locker is an online store/monthly service that sells a box of hobby packs and card supplies for just the cost of a blaster box.
