Trade with Holmbergs Corner from Sweden

Rasmus, of the YouTube channel Holmbergs Corner, contacted me about sending me some D-Backs cards. We arranged a trade about a week later I got a package from Sweden. Thanks Rasmus! Go check out his YouTube channel.

Check out what he sent me.

First up are a couple of Finest base cards including a Chris Owings RC and a Paul Goldschmidt, both of which I needed.

Next up is a sweet Finest Sterling insert card of Goldschmidt.  Another card I needed. In fact, I didn't have any of the cards he sent. 

Here is a blue parallel of Martin Prado from 2014 Bowman. 

Next up are two autographs of Jake Barrett. The base and then the gold parallel numbered to 50!

Finally, this 2014 Triple Threads jersey/auto of Didi Gregorious. It must have been a redemption and so I thought I'd scan it with in the top loader with the Topps sticker on it. 

Thank you so much Rasmus! I'll be sending some Brewers your way soon!

October 23, 1993

In Game 6 of the 1993 World Series with the Blue Jays leading the Phillies 3 games to 2, the Phillies took at 6-5 lead into the bottom of the 9th. With two men on, Joe Carter came to the plate and hit a 3 run home run off Mitch Williams to win the game and the World Series in walk-off fashion.

Not sure why I wasn't watching the game on TV, but I remember listening to this game on the radio and going crazy when Carter hit the home run.

Happy Birthday Robinson Cano!

Robinson Cano was born October 22, 1982.

Here is his 2003 Bowman RC.

Here is a 2001 Topps Update All-Star Stitches. Since I was at the 2011 Home Run Derby, this is probably my favorite Cano card.
