Mike Matheny 1996 Leaf Signature Silver auto
Matheny, of course, is the Cardinals' first-year manager, and I'm dying to see how the former Wolverine can get his Pujols-less team into the postseason. At the same time, I can't help hoping Chipper Jones ends his career with a magical World Series run (but that's only if the Tigers falter!).
If this card looks fairly familiar, that's because I previously picked up the more abundant bronze version and blogged about it here. That puts me one Gold version away from a nice trifecta, plus 100% of Matheny's hits ever produced. Not bad at all!
And now I wish a hearty good luck to your favorite MLB playoff team as long as they aren't playing the Tigers. And screw the Yankees, of course--nobody likes them.
