2011 Allen and Ginter 2-Box Break Part 3: The Inserts

Code Cards (FREE SCANS!!!!):



The Markakis is a short print, as well.  Why didn't that card come in the Gint-A-Cuffs box? I mean, it's a short print code card from the favorite player list.  Where was that kind of combo when I needed it?  All of these are for trade.

Floating Fortresses:




 These are not for trade.  I was originally only going after the Monitor and Merrimack, but these cards are sweet.

Minds that Made the Future:



I am a nerd.  I love these cards.  The set is a little bit big, but I'm going for it.  Not for trade.

Highlight Sketches:



I think these are really well done this year, with the exception of the horizontal pictures.  If they had put horizontal frames on them, I would absolutely love them.  Nevertheless, I'm collecting them.  Not for trade.

Ascent of Man:



Easily the most talked about cards this year, I'm still not sure I'm sold on them.  They are completely not what I thought they were going to be.  I borderline hate these cards.  I also borderline love them.  I am the "/" in "love/hate".  I am collecting the set though.  Not for trade.

That's it for the inserts.  Of course, that leaves the hits, which are coming soon.
