While I spend a lot of time collecting Cardinals, Rays, and Durham Bulls players I do dabble in the Tigers a little bit. As mentioned before, my in-laws are Michiganders and my brother in-law and father in-law are both pretty big Tigers fans. We talk a little bit of baseball. I have some good Tigers cards and thought this card looked awesome:
2008 UD Premier Patches Ivan Rodriguez Dual Patch
It's just a pretty incredible card. The tiger patch has to be as good as it gets for a Tigers card, so this card found a home in my collection for the moment. I was also able to pick up another Topps Tribute card for my Cardinals collection.
2002 Topps Tribute Ozzie Smith Bat Card
I had picked up a Ken Boyer from Topps Tribute in Part 1 and was happy to add the Ozzie to complete my pair of bat cards from the Wizard. I am going to have to go and check out my checklist of the Cardinals in the Tribute set to see how close I am to having on the relics cards. In the meantime, I am happy with my most recent trip into Big D's. I will be heading back next weekend for a Trade Night event Jimmy is hosting at the shop. Should be fun.
