TriStar Recap Part Quarttro

I think for this episode of TriStar recap I will show off the Redbird’s autos and non-Redbird cards picked up. All of these were scored for $2 per.

Patrick Wisdom 2013  Bowman Inception & 2013 Bowman Chrome
Third Baseman Patrick was #52 in the 1st round (52nd) of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft. He attended the near to us in the Bay Area- St. Mary's College of California (Moraga, CA). He is currently at AAA Memphis where he is hitting .196. Reviewing his stats shows a mid or lower .200hittier. I don’t see Patrick making hit to the bigs any time soon, or ever-based on his hitting. You need to be a power corner.
Luke Weaver 2014 Bowman Sterling
Luke is a lefty pitcher from Florida State drafted first round of the 2014 Major League Baseball Draft. He was the 2016 season Cardinals' fourth-best prospect .

Oscar Taveras 2014 Bowman Sterling
What can I say about OT.
Mike Mayers 2014 Bowman Chrome. This makes my third copy –but for $2 worth a gamble. Will check Ray's have list.
Mike was the Redbird’s 3rd round of the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft out of University of Mississippi.  He is with the AA Springfield Cardinals where he has a 3.54 ERA for 2016 and is 2 and 2.

Ray over at Cardinals All the Time follows these folks much more than I do-he has seen a few of them in action.
Next up-one of my favorite Topps annual issues. Spring Fever-I will always pick these up-now I just have to put my check list together. I think I have mentioned before how much I love the colors and the photos-most certainly a winner.
2014 Topps Spring Fever Clayton Kershaw and Paul Goldschmidt              
Last non-Redbird cards are the 2001 Topps Archives Reserve. Again for a dime-I am grabbing these all day long. Again, I just now put a checklist together.

Willie Hernandez, Hoyt Wilhelm (One time Redbird),Frank Howard.

Dick Groat (One time Redbird),Thurman Munson,Paul Blair,

Ted Kluszeweski,Herb Score.
Thank you for reading-next up will be the dime box finds.


  1. Thanks for thinking of me on the Mayers, but I already have it. You are spot on with Wisdom. I doubt the Cardinals cut him loose though because he has a great glove and a lot of pop. If he could hit .250-.260 he would be a useful backup.

    Wish I could go to shows with $2 Cardinals autos.

    1. One of the few benefits of living in the Bay Area for the Redbirds' fans. I have my doubts on Mayers, what do you think?

    2. I doubt he will make it as a starter. He had some health issues, and with so many other options like Reyes, Cooney, and Gonzales there is no room. Might have an outside shot as a reliever, but I do not think he throws in the upper 90s like most Cardinal relievers.

  2. I missed out on 2001 Topps Archives Reserves? Shaking my head.

  3. they and the Topps Reserve and Pristine I go goo goo for
