Mail Day #4 - Auto's and Inserts

I've got some bigger things to post, but I wanted to do a quick pick up post here before I forget.  I have done some trading recently with some friends on Twitter and picked up a few cards from eBay.  None of the Twitter pickups are Cubs.  However, I did go to my LCS and picked up a couple packs of 2016 Topps Heritage Minor League and found a Rizzo I didn't have in my PC.

First up is an Andy Pettite from 2016 Bowman's Best, a Harold Baines auto /50 from 2016 Stadium Club, and an Anthony Rizzo /199 from 2013 Topps Archives.

  • The Pettite insert is awesome because they used the 1996 design.  I plan on picking up more of these.  
  • The Baines auto popped up on eBay for cheap, so I grabbed it for trade bait.
  • Lastly, the Rizzo my LCS had, so I grabbed it for the PC.

Next up I have a couple of Gypsy Queen autos of Trevor Cahill and Christian Yelich.

  • The Trevor Cahill auto goes to the 2016 Cubs  roster auto/relic collection I started.  Check the PC tab on the blog to see how that collection is going.
  • Christian Yelich was part of a twitter trade I had.  He is a good young player that I think I'll start collecting when I see his stuff for cheap.

Finally, the two packs of 2016 Heritage Minor Leagues didn't give me much.  I got a cool insert of Billy McKinney and a blue border parallel /99 of Osvaldo Abreu.

I'll add the Harold Baines auto to the for trade section of my blog.  More trade items will be added shortly, now that I'm organizing my cards.
