More Update Trade Bait

The MLB playoffs this year have been a blink and you'll miss it affair, at least for me this year. We're already two games deep into the ALCS with the Yankees down 2 games and about to hit the road while Jeter lies in a broken heap. Meanwhile, the Cardinals sent Lance Lynn to the mound to start Game 1 and he didn't last long. Considering he's been used primarily out of the bullpen since the playoff madness started, it's not that surprising that he ran into a tough inning. The Cardinals built a big lead early and were once again able to ride their bullpen to a victory on the road. Game 2 is tomorrow and I can't wait.

In other news, I picked up a few packs of Update at Target yesterday along with a jumbo rack pack. I'll spare you all the gory details, but here are some images of the more tradeable cards.

This has to be one of the more boring inserts of recent memory. It reminds me of some of the Ultra and Upper Deck inserts from around 2006-2007.

Cain is scheduled to take the hill for Game 3 at Busch if I recall.

This is a painful trade to think about if you're a Cardinals fan. St. Louis has been on the right side of a lot of big trades, but not this one.

I know him! He pitched tonight. This is a Target exclusive parallel. I might lower my standards and hit one of the other big box stores soon for more of these.

Carlos Corporan joined a long line of head scratching roster filling players that wore the Astros jersey this year.

Nice retro uni.

This feels Photoshopped to me. That number seems large and it is sitting at a weird angle. Anyone else care to weigh in?

If only I knew a Rangers fan... oh wait, I do.

Pretty sure Obama won't take Kentucky this year. I somehow completely missed the news that these Presidential Predictor cards would be included. It seems like the odds on me getting one weren't very good.

I won a Twins virtual coin. Yay?

This was a good set of packs if you're an Angels fan.

I don't have much to say about the Reds. I'm still getting used to them being the Cardinals primary rival, and it's weird.

Just drop me an email or a comment if you're interested in any of these or anything else from my trade bait posts.


  1. Hey I Like the Angels! I'll see what I can come up with in return if that's cool.

  2. Can you set that Nathan aside for me. I will include more cards on our trade. I will send you an e mail this afternoon
