It may have been a holiday stateside, but it was just a normal mail day up here. And the mailman brought me a small envelope from a Sportlots. I'd used the birthday lists on baseball-reference to find candidates for the binder, but that only covers people that reached the majors. Finding minor leaguers was a little harder, but searching for "February 14th" with google turned up some new candidates.
The problem is that most minor league cards go for about $2 - $3 at COMC. I guess the seller wants to capitalize on people that want "their card" or the card of the guy they know from work. However, the sportlots seller had them for $1.00 each, si I jumped on 4 new cards.
I don't care that they didn't reach the bigs. Their cards are still honoured members of the club.
the photo at this company's site, I think this card is shown in the lower corner below the framed jersey.

Welcome to the 2/14 binders!
