First, I just wanted to notify bloggers using Blogger that those of us using WordPress are having a difficult time (or an impossible time) trying to leave comments on your blogs. Really frustrating.
Back last July my St. Louis area counterpart Ike from Ike’s Cards posted a trade bait image of a Killebrew leather nameplate; just so happened that I had a Rogers Hornsby that I could trade for it. Life got in the way, but eventually I sent Rogers and a few others off to Ike, and he returned a great package of Twins cards, including these:
clockwise, from top left; 2011 Topps Series 2 Leather Nameplate #MGL-HK Harmon Killebrew; 2003 Donruss Estrellas Leyendas Del Pasado #LP-8 Rod Carew; 2005 Topps Gallery Artist Proof #29 Justin Morneau; 2008 Bowman Chrome Orange Refractor #195 Denard Span [03/25]; 2005 Topps Gallery #36 Lew Ford; 2011 Topps Lineage Diamond Anniversary #8 Francisco Liriano
Thanks a lot, Ike — I’ll continue to keep my eyes open for other Cardinals cards in the future.
