Mandatory Allen & Ginter Post

So it’s been about a week or so since I posted. Looks like I’m falling back into some lazy habits. I blame it on the Tour de France (fantastic time sucking TV), house projects, and the joys of living in Florida during the summer.

Now it’s time to jump back on the horse and see what’s going on in the world. It looks like the entire blog-o-sphere is infected with Ginter-fever, and I’m not immune. As a reward for completing the floor installation of our bedroom (only 3 more rooms to go!) I stopped by the ol’ card shop to see if had any boxes.

Not only did he have three boxes, he also had a price that was comparable to the on-line dealers. As a matter of fact I might have come out ahead, I won’t bore you with all the base cards, but I will list the parallels. All of these are available for trade except for the Cabinet card. Here we go:

Cabinet card: The South Concedes the War

Excellent card for a history major who had quite the fascination with the Civil War as a kid. I think I might have to frame this up, it almost counts as “art".

Baseball Highlight Sketch Cards:

Albert Pujlos
New York Yankees
David Wright (x2)
Francisco Rodriguez
Ichiro (x2)

Wow that’s a lot of sketch cards for one box you might be saying to yourself. Well a couple of them came from blasters I bought over the weekend. I really like these cards, too bad the O’s haven’t done anything in the last few years to be included.

The “Hits”:

Ryan Ludwick Jersey
Grady Sizmore Jersey
Magglio Ordonez Jersey

Well I guess they’re not horrible, but they are the three players that I have no problem trading away.

Black Bordered Mini’s:

Art Pennington - #97
Chris Duncan - #99
Roy Halladay - #123
Chase Utley - #165
Lastings Milledge - #252
Chris Young - #344

Nice looking cards. I also have a bunch of regular and A&G backs available for trade. Send me an email for the ones you need and I’ll see if I can help you out.

Mini National Hero’s:

Winston Churchill - England
Toussaint L’Ouverture - Haiti
William I - Netherlands

Hoaxs, Hijinks, Ruses, etc…:

Cold Fusion
James Reavis
Anna Anderson

Creatures of Legend, Myth and Terror:


Crack the Code Parrallel:

Jered Weaver - #134
Jeff suppan - #135
Jim Thome - #167
Scott Rolen - #223

The code might have been cracked, but they’re still nice cards to have.

So let me know if you need any of these. As always I’m looking for Carl Crawford cards (including the base for this set as I didn’t pull one in my box), help with uncompleted sets and random O’s and Rays cards. Oh and if you a spare Chupacabra card you can send me, you might be considered for induction into the Wasteland Hall of Fame.

I thought the exact same thing about the Cabinet card. We pulled the same one.

I've got two more boxes on the way to me, but I'd be interested in any insert mini (plus any regular back mini) that I don't pull in my boxes.

FanOfReds...after you sort through your other boxes let me know what you need and I'll get them out to you. Good luck
