Moving Up the List


A couple of cards of the Cardinals franchise catcher from as he moves up the list of games played. 

Yadier Molina played his 2000th career game today, as he recently passed Ozzie Smith to move into third place all-time in Cardinals history in that category. To celebrate the achievement, here's a couple of nice Yadi items from Trevor of Bump and Run.

I don't often see Opening Day jerseys or autographs (could this be my first OD jersey?) because the odds of pulling them are usually so low, so I was pretty excited about this one. My scanner turned Yadi's red jersey swatch into more of a bubble gum colored square.
From the 2018 Topps sticker album comes this Yadi. I need to get more stickers. I wonder if there's a good way to acquire stickers (or packs) in bulk these days.


There were other non-Yadi cards to be found as well. Here's a pretty cool photo from what looks to be a night game. I'm really tired of hearing sports announcers talking about the lack of fans in the stands these days, but here's a reminder of the fan-filled days.


Trevor also became one of the latest to help out with the 2020 Topps Heritage cause. I just need 20-some odd cards to finish off the base set now.

Thanks again to Trevor and everyone else who has sent cards this summer!

I'm assuming Musial is one of the two players ahead of him, but drawing a blank on who the other person could be. Ozzie would have been my guess before reading this post.

Musial is #1 by a wide margin. Yadi will have to play a couple more seasons to have a chance at catching Lou Brock at #2.

Oh man. Can't believe I drew a blank on Brock. I kinda got stuck on thinking it was some 1920's or 1930's player.

The OD jersey and 2018 Topps sticker designs are sharp, much better than the flagship designs of the past couple years.

(p.s. thanks for the PWE!)
