Found December 19, 2011 on The Cardinal Nation blog:
Every year at this time, I receive the autograph details for the St. Louis Cardinals Winter Warm-Up. The fan event is always held over Martin Luther King weekend, this time from Saturday, January 14 through Monday, January 16. In my annual just-for-fun endeavor, I look at rising and falling autograph prices from year to year. These are set by someone within the Cardinals hierarchy, and offer at least some estimation of the expected supply and demand for the autographs. In addition, the list of those signing for free includes over 40 names former, current and aspiring Cardinals. Also included for the second consecutive year are a trio of former Negro Leagues players, DeMorris Smith, Jesse Rogers and Sam Taylor. As always, the proceeds go to charity, Cardinals Care, so the needy are the true winners. Autograph tickets will go on sale online at at 9 A.M. on Wednesday, December 21. There is a limit of three tickets per player except for Lance Berkman and David Freese at on...

Who Will Play Center in St. Louis?

Does anyone want to go to St. Louis? After losing Albert Pujols to the Los Angeles Angels, it was unclear how the reigning champs would respond this off-season. Instead of going after the other marquee free-agents, the Cardinals appear to be shoring up their team through smaller moves. With the uncertainty surrounding Allen Craig — who had knee surgery in November — the Cardinals...

Free chances to win Cardinals spring training package

Earlier this month, I made a post in support of a great cause, the St. Louis Men’s Group Against Cancer. The group is running a series of raffles to raise funds for charities focused on cancer research, prevention and care. Since then, I learned the entry deadline has been extended through the end of the year. Better yet, I have been given a total of 12 raffle entries to be awarded...
