2008 Allen & Ginter is Out!!!

As usual, I will probably buy a couple of packs or blasters when they show up at the department stores. I will make an attempt to buy a complete set (with a Fukudome card, un-numbered, but considered #351) at the National. UPDATE!!! I'll still go to the National, but I can scratch buying the set there because I found this for $93.00, and it comes with the 50 card state-flag set.

As for insert sets...I'll probably see if someone has complete sets for cheap (the US Flag ones, and the World Leaders specifically...note to self, must get more than one Glorioa Macapagal Arroyo card to give to parents). If there are vendors at the big show selling other complete sets for decent prices, then I'll get those too.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I want to win the "Crack the Code" contest. Already, dayf, the Cardboard Junkie, is attempting to at least even the playing field by posting codes found on the Bay. I'll probably find the rest at the show.

I think they said there were 20 cards total. I'm pretty sure that the code is the same for all 20 cards, so if one is cracked, the other 19 should be easy to figure out (darn, there are numbers too).

To all those participating and dreaming of having their mug on a 2009 Allen & Ginter card, good luck to you.

I'm not a set builder, but if I was ever going to put together a set, I believe it would be 2008 Allen & Ginter. Just look at the player selection both new and old. Mantle, Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, etc. to go along with A-Rod, Pujols, etc. What a great looking set!
