Cael’s Collection  – Cedar Rapids Professional Baseball Alumni Baseball Cards
     The alumni card of the day is a Hal Trosky ‘cut’ autograph card from the 2009 Upper Deck Legendary Cuts set that is serial numbered 19/34. I picked this one up at Grand Slam Collectibles out at Lindale mall a couple years ago. Check out the Cael’s Collection post yesterday. I talked more in depth yesterday about the different types of autograph cards you can pull from packs. This card is an example of a ‘cut’ autograph.
