I have had a really rough month with posting cards consistently, but I really wanted to get a #MyCardMonday post up before the end of the weekend. This week's card comes from the 2011 Topps Diamond Die Cut Set. These cards could be earned by typing in a code from the back of a card into a website. Some codes earned collectors vintage Topps cards, while others gave them a crack at one of these cool die-cuts. I have a few I picked up that year. For #MyCardMonday I picked a copy of Jon Jay:
I picked Jay because he is having a great season for the Cardinals. The Redbirds have been a frustrating team to watch this year, but Jay is posting a .309/.280.401 line with a 119 OPS+. All are career highs. While many Cardinals fans thought he would not stay on the team through the offseason, he has been a pleasant surprise and one of the few consistent contributors to the team. I loved collecting Jay cards the past few years and have not found as many this year, but looking back through the old ones always makes me happy.
