A&G's Red Auto, Printing Plate and more...

As most of you know, I have not been a long time baseball card collector (like most of you) but I only started collecting last year. Since then I have bought several boxes, just to get a feel for what's out there these days and to see which products I like. One of the products I like a lot is Allen & Ginter given its great look and feel. Today I just wanted to share some of the nice pulls I had from the few 2008, 2010 & 2011 boxes I opened in recent months. The first great pull is a nice Auto of Matt Kemp, really like the look of this card !


My second great pull was a Tom Glavine relic card, not a super special card for most of you I guess but for me it brings back some good memories as Tom almost threw a no-hitter in the first baseball game I attended in 2004 against the Rockies. 

From the 2010 set I pulled my first ever printing plate !! Never pulled one after that and it's not even a baseball player but still it's always special to pull a 1/1 printing plate !!

From the 2011 set I have pulled some fun stuff, two very nice cards in particular. Firstly, my only red auto out of the A&G set, a 6/10 red auto of Ranger Josh Hamilton !

Furthermore, another non-baseball card but one of a boxer, Pacquiao !!

Thanks for checking out my best A&G pulls. Later this week I will share with you my best non-A&G pulls so stay tuned !

  4. Just started following after I saw you claim a team in The Dimwit's box break. That Hamilton is the sweetest card I've seen in a long time. Thanks for showing it!!

  5. That Josh Hamilton is still amazing. I've still never pulled a printing plate myself.
