Trade with My Cardboard Mistress

My favorite Cardboard Mistress, and yours, recently offered up some Allen & Ginter relics in return for a few cards that he needed to finish off his Allen & Ginter run from 2006 - 2013. I happened to have one of the cards he needed so we arranged a trade.

I recently announced that I was going to start collecting Aroldis Chapman, so when I saw this relic was available, I couldn't have been happier. I am curious to know what jersey this came from though.

My Cardboard Mistress sent a variety of other D-Backs as well. Since the All-Star game was tonight, let's show off the D-Backs All-Stars first.

Paul Goldschmidt, America's First Baseman, started for the NL tonight. He had a rough night, but so did a lot of the NL squad.

Miguel Montero was a reserve and got one at bat in the top of the 9th. Unfortunately he flied out. I got three versions of this Montero mini. 

Patrick Corbin was an All-Star last season. He had been out this season with Tommy John surgery. 

Wade Miley was the lone D-Backs representative for the 2012 Mid-Summer Classic.

Jose Valverde represented the Diamondbacks in 2007. 

Randy Johnson appeared in 5 All-Star games as a Diamondback (1999-2002 and 2004). 

Here are the other cards that Adam sent. 

This is my first Chipz and I like it. I'm not sure what to do with it, but I like it. Thanks for the cards and Chipz Adam!


  1. The Chapman jersey is from a 1960s throwback the Reds used a few years ago. Not much of a fan of Topps using that jersey because of the bleached appearance of the material.
