A 3 Pack Break of Allen & Ginter

After reading blog after blog singing the praises of this year's edition of Allen & Ginter, I decided that even though I already paid for a full set that I'd buy a few packs, just to see what all the hubbub is about. Needless to say, I was not disappointed by the cards that I got after opening the packs.

Now, instead of typing out the cards that I did receive, I figured that it would be easier to just scan all the cards from each of the three packs at once, and then make my comments afterwards.

Pack #1 had:

Not a bad pack. Got a Manny, an Alex Gordon Nebraska card, but the key to the pack...a card of the Pope!!! I should have read the checklist a little more closely, because I don't remember seeing Pope Benedict's name among the world leaders on the checklist. If I didn't get the Gloria Macapagal Arroyo card (President of the Philippines), this isn't a bad card to have instead.

Pack #2:

Nothing to write home about here...except for getting a Griffey card, along with the Soto mini.

Pack #3:

We have a winner!!! Got Joba? Check. Got "Rampage" Jackson? Check. A Joey Votto RC Logo card? Check. A relic card of someone good? Carl Crawford is good.

Decent pack breaks. The relic cards seem a lot easier to come by this year, so I'm glad I pulled at least one. Seeing these makes me look forward to getting the rest of the set.

I've been haunting the local Target waiting for a blaster box of these. No luck yet.

:) Me too! I am not in the market to buy A&G hobby this time.

On that note, I saw Americana II boxes at Wal-Mart...strange.

I really like that Hunter Pence!
