So now the election season is over, at least for the next two years, and the vomit has receded from my throat since seeing the Cubs win the World Series. I thought a few weeks ago that I would catalogue Cardinals' autos and relics. I mean how could this take long? Well this wouldn't be the first time I miscalculated the time it takes to accomplish a task-though this I don't think is the issue. I think the issue is that I was being naive. Either way it is a sisyphean task.
Man what do you speak about? Well I am only through 2003, though not necessarily an exhaustive list since I may have missed a few, or uncertain whether a player such as Ted Simmons was depicted as a Redbird or a Brewer-with out trying to find an image-however I am certain the numbers aren't that far off. So drum roll please.....through 2003 I have put in a spread sheet 857 Cardinals' unique autographs! This includes parallels.
and 1192 Relic/Game Used Cards all of which are unique, though this includes parallels. Both lists include dual Auto/Relic-Game used cards.
