Trinity, Killer Patch

I do not dabble in the non-licensed sets too often, but I will bend that rule for something really cool.  I have had my eye on a couple of cards out of the Leaf Trinity set the past few weeks.  While I am not a huge fan of Leaf, they do a great job of getting recent draft picks to sign and include some really cool patch pieces too.  Initially, I was looking for some of the players who were on the NC State baseball last year.  Then I found a few Cardinals cards that I really liked.  

I decided to focus on Luke Weaver cards.  I saw him pitch for USA Baseball and Florida State the last two years and was impressed with his play.  Plus the Cardinals have done pretty well the past two years with Michael Wacha and Marco Gonzales.  So, this is what I ended up landing....

I am not sure where the patch piece ranks in my Cardinals collection, but it is pretty spectacular.  There were other cards with pieces of his name or number, but I decided a piece of the Cardinal would be even cooler.  Hopefully Mr. Weaver will make it to St Louis, but if not, this is still a really cool card. 

Oh, and the title......

  1. That was the best and most craziest season of Dexter in my opinion. Also, nice card!
