This year I am chasing the full Allen & Ginter set and was actually hoping for a complete set when opening 3 hobby boxes. However, Hobby Box 2 & 3 contained 99% the same base cards (thanks Topps...) so I still am in need of a bunch of 2012 A&G. Sam at theDailyDimwit is facing the same situation so this was a good opportunity to help each other out on this front. Yesterday a bunch of A&G cards arrived, helping me to close in on completing the set. So if you have any spare 2012 A&G (or other years) lying around do check out my Want List. I still have plenty of A&G base available for trade !
Now let's have a look what kind of cool cards Sam send my way! Two great-looking base cards !
Federer had a difficult first round today at the Olympics, still the most likely to win gold in my view.
Sam also included a bunch of Historical Turning Points inserts and one of the World's Tallest Building inserts ! As a non-US citizen I am actually a bit sceptical about the "fairness" of this insert series as 90% or so are buildings from the US while in all honestly, there have been a lot of tall(er) buildings build in Asia (Singapore, China, Korea, Taiwan etc) in the last 5-10 years. But I get it, it's mostly a US crowd buying this product :-)
Lastly, mini's !!!! Some Yankees, Rivera!, and some of the mini inserts !!
Thanks Sam for a cool trade and helping me get one step closer to completion !! If anyone is looking to trade A&G let me know !
