cards on cards sends cards and cards and cards and cards

it's going to take me a while to show off as many of the cards that kerry from cards on cards has sent me over the last few months. i figure i had better get started before the next batch arrives...

if i recall correctly, kerry busted a box of 2006 bowman heritage a long time ago and offered up dupes to folks. i received some nice cards for the collection, including a card of one prospect named clayton kershaw!
chad billingsley rookie, too
and when is the last time you saw a julio lugo card on a blog? well, here you go
i must have received these cards early in the pandemic, as they arrived with a 2020 topps cody bellinger rainbow foil parallel
and a will smith card from 2020 topps heritage.
kerry was also kind enough to acknowledge one of my more obscure player collections by sending me a card of the current qb coach for the detroit lions, mark brunell

while these cards were still new to my collections, i received another envelope from kerry.

i am pretty sure i specifically claimed these first two cards - a 2001 topps heritage joe randa card
for my set build (20 years and still working on it!) - and a 1990 topps magazine card featuring barry larkin, eric davis, and chris sabo
hanging out in dodger stadium. you know i appreciate a good pun, and "battin' rouge" delivers.

i also claimed the twins in a 2019 topps "topps of the class" break, and received a couple of jose berrios cards 
as a result. kerry and the person who claimed the dodgers were kind enough to share the wealth, and so i also received cards of walker buehler and cody bellinger
as well. just missing kershaw for the team set. speaking of whom, kerry sent me this purple holo parallel 
of the future hall of famer along with the base version and a couple of other dodgers from 2020 panini donruss
which was great because i never did see these cards on any retail shelf.

the last cards i will share from kerry (for now) are these 2020 panini diamond king cards of walt alston
tony gonsolin
and vladimir guerrero
the vladdy all-time diamond king insert is a great addition to my vladdy pc, but all of these cards were appreciated!  trust me when i say i have only scratched the surface of what kerry has sent my way over the past year - more to come!

thanks kerry!


  1. Battin' Rouge is a good one.

    My favorite Will Smith song is "Summertime", from when he was still with DJ Jazzy Jeff.

    1. i don't really have a favorite tune of smith's (or of dj jazzy jeff and fresh prince), but i have used a couple of them to create punny titles for posts - for example:

  2. Wow. A Topps Magazine trading card sighting. Very cool. That Kershaw is nice too.

    1. topps mag cards do seem to be less visible than the baseball card mag cards, at least on the blogosphere.

  3. I have been meaning to do a blog entry on the Julio Lugo 2006 Topps Signature Moves auto, a Dodgers certified auto that is seldom seen. Never got around to it, and now with your comment, I may not again for a while. Hahah.

  4. When Kerry sends cards, he really sends cards!
