2013 Five Star Paul Goldschmidt

I stopped by my LCS on the way home from work this past Thursday and picked up this 2013 Five Star base card of Paul Goldschmidt.

It's numbered 56/75 and is much rarer than the autographed version which is numbered to 386. I've wanted this card for a while, but it doesn't come up very often on ebay, so when I saw it at my LCS for $8 I had to get it.

Trade with The Card Papoy

I got a package in from France the other day and we all know what that means. Kevin, of the blog The Card Pappy, sent me some sweet D-Backs from across the Atlantic Ocean.

Thanks Kevin! Your cards are in the mail. Here are some of the cards that Kevin sent.

This is one of the first Diamondbacks cards ever made.

Here are a couple of sweet Gonzo Stadium Club cards from the early 2000's.

Here is a sparkly Justin Upton. 

Kevin sent some newer Topps parallels including these two Aaron Hill cards. 

This Justin Bieber card found its way into the package. It's a 1st Print card so it must be worth big bucks. 

There was a nice Stephen Drew A & G bat card. 

This 2005 Prime Patches 4 piece jersey card of Luis Gonzalez is awesome! Thanks again Kevin!

So many awesome D-Backs relics from Bob Walk the Plank!

Matt, of the blog Bob Walk the Plank, has unloaded a plethora of D-Backs goodness on me once again!

When he asked me about the trade I told him I'd need to see if I could find some Pirates and then a couple of days later a package arrived in my mailbox.

I still need to find some Pirates, but I will hit you back Matthew!

Here is what Matt sent.

Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, but 7 Brandon Webb relic cards. You will see 5 different ones but that is because Matt sent 2 of the Fleer Tradition Stand Outs pants card.

Here are two awesome Luis Gonzalez cards!

Next is a Chris Young jersey card!

This 2014 Topps Chrome Black Refractor of Martin Prado is numbered to 100!

This Topps HD Steve Finley card was probably my favorite that Matt sent because it's so cool looking! The baseball is acetate so the jersey really pops! 

Thanks again Matt for all the awesome cards! I will find some Pirates to return the favor!

Contest Winnings from The Home Run Apple

Keith, of the blog The Home Run Apple, recently held a contest and I was one of the winners.

My main prize was this 2014 Stadium Club autographed rookie card of Phillies pitcher Mario Hollands.

Keith also sent a couple of D-Backs 2014 Stadium Club cards.

Speaking of Goldschmidt, here is a 2014 Topps Chrome insert of Goldy!

There were also these three 2014 Topps Chrome base cards of Chris Owings, Martin Prado, and Aaron Hill. Thanks for a great prize pack Keith!

Some minis and a Goldschmidt auto from Catching Rays!

My friend Joe hooked me up today with some awesome D-Backs cards! Joe and I work together and he runs the blog Catching Rays!

He gave me a 2013 Gypsy Queen mini team set, a 2015 Gypsy Queen mini of Patrick Corbin and an awesome 2015 Museum Collection Paul Goldschmidt autograph! Thanks Joe!

I typically end up with one or two D-Back minis from each set that has minis so to get an entire team set is just awesome!

I can't wait for Corbin to be back in the starting rotation. The D-Backs really need him!

Paul Goldschmidt was just named NL Player of the Week for last week, so it made this autograph from Joe even better, if that is possible. Nice clean card with a great looking signature and it's relatively low numbered at 199. Thank you so much Joe!

Mystery Pack from Ricky Russo

Ricky Russo offered up mystery packs recently and I picked one up. $29 shipped. He offered all four major sports, but I went with baseball.

Here is what I ended up with. A nice variety of old and new players.
