These were really nice cards, so I decided to take my car, with it's new gas cap up to Big D's for one last time. Seriously. So, here's what I ended up adding to my collection while I was in the store:
This card was picked up by another customer at Big D's who found it at a Flea Market in Raleigh. Being the resident Cardinals fan at Big D's the guy asked Jimmy if I would be interested in this card. Of course I was interested. I have always loved these Postseason cards and thought this patch piece looked really cool. I was trying to figure out what part of the Cardinals logo this piece came from, but I cannot quite put my fingers on it. As nice as this card is this is the second best Cardinals card I picked up Saturday.
This card is just awesome. Alan, an Orioles collector, pulled it from a box of 2015 Topps, along with a cool looking Pujols coin card. After talking it over for awhile we agreed to a trade that landed me this cool Carpenter and another Cardinals autograph which is en route, for a Ripken autograph. You have to give up something, and while the price was high, I am ecstatic to have landed this Carpenter Postseason autograph. Probably the best Cardinals card I have out of this long running insert set from Topps base sets.
