2012 Topps Heritage Minor League Carlos Martinez Magenta Printing Plate
I found this card over on my Facebook page where it was pulled by Ryan, a great baseball card trader. He can also be found in several of the trading groups, but is always really cool to work with on trading. Anyway, I sent over a nice Ryan Bruan autograph for the Martinez plate and we also traded out a few nice relics cards from my side for a few nice autographs and relic card for my end of the deal.
2008 SPX Young Stars Signatures Chris Duncan Autograph
First up is a nice Chris Duncan autograph from the 2008 SPX set. I actually own almost all of the Chris Duncan autographs, but was still missing this one. I collected Chris Duncan cards for awhile after the 2006 World Series since he was one of the key players on that team. He has since retired due to a neck injury and works in St. Louis in talk radio.
2010 Donruss Elite Tyrell Jenkins
I also received a 2010 Donruss Elite Tyrell Jenkins autograph. Jenkins is one of the better pitching prospects in the highly rated Cardinals minor league system. He is considered a little bit raw, but is a fantastic athlete and was recruited to Baylor to play football. Jenkins is also a great follow on Twitter and really interacts with his fans and followers.
2007 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Bruce Sutter Jersey
Lastly, I received a Sweet Sport Bruce Sutter jersey. The card has a cool picture of Bruce Sutter with the awesome shaggy 80s beard and a piece of powder blue Cardinals road jersey.
