Last night had to hurt if you're a Cardinals fan. I don't think the Redbird faithful thought Wainwright would get knocked around like he did.
I thought I'd soothe the burn a little for the few Cardinals fans who read this blog by showing them a card I picked up for nothing, literally, from my old card shop owner's house.
This 2002 Leaf Rookies and Stars Jim Edmonds Dress for Success card fits nicely into my relic type collection. It features a piece of "game worn" jersey and shoe.
I like these because they show the actual jersey and shoes the swatches were taken from, at least according to Leaf. This one is #82/250, which begs the question, how many swatches can you get from a pair of shoes? Is it 250?
You tell me.
Don't think for a minute this means I'm rooting for the Cardinals. I'm still mad at them for beating my Rangers a couple of years ago. I'm not rooting for the Red Sox either.
I'm hoping for a tie...that never ends. Until pitchers and catchers report at least.
