A&G Delivery and Want List !!

The set I am most looking forward to every year is Allen & Ginter and this year was no different. When I noticed that Chris at Nachos Grande was hosting a case break I jumped on the opportunity. The loot arrived yesterday, now also giving me a good view on my current A&G needs as I am planning to try to complete the full set including the inserts !!

Lets first have a quick look at some of the loot. I won't bore you with all the base & insert cards as there have been plenty going around the blogosphere in recent weeks. First-up my two autograph cards, I really like this years look-and-feel of these, sadly enough no Yankees but still two cool cards !

I also received some relics but coming from Europe I really don't know these people !

I was also lucky enough to receive one of the box toppers, Mattingly but not sure yet how I am going to store these (tips are welcome!)

I received plenty of short-prints as well included several copies of these Yankees. So if you are looking for any SPs let's trade !

One more SP and one of the Ginter code cards ! I liked following this years code, bringing me back to the old "adventure" days of Zack McKracken and Larry, Space Quest and all the others !

All in all an very cool case break so thanks very much Chris and already looking forward to next year ! First, however, I still need to complete this year's set. I have plenty of base, SPs etc to trade so let's do this !

I still need the following base cards: 6, 13, 50, 54, 58, 59, 68, 81, 84, 101, 110, 112, 122, 131, 138, 144, 155, 193, 228, 230, 232, 235, 236, 250, 272, 296, 297, 302, 307, 312, 316, 319, 323, 324, 325, 328, 333, 336, 337, 347, 348.

On my Want List Page you can see all the inserts, minis etc that I am still looking for. I have a pile to trade so feel free to contact me with your needs as well !!


  1. Hank Haney was Tiger Woods' golf coach for a while. I store those oversize cards all together in an old empty Ginter box. It's all I have until I get some pages big enough for them.

  2. Nice cards! Allen & Ginter is a great product!

  3. full size sheet protectors is how I store the one I have...
