A while back, 2011 A&G started showing up at discounted prices, so I picked up several different items. I got 9 retail packs, 2 rack packs, and a blaster. Let's compare the contents, starting with the retail packs:
I won't be showing un-SP base cards, because you've seen all of those. I managed 5 SPs:
I did score a number of cards for the PC:
I needed the Verlander for my player binder, since my other one is in my set. The Upton is a code parallel, always a nice loose pack pull.
The dupe Strasburgs stinks, but I needed the Aristotle for my set, so that's a big plus.
all you really want to see is the minis, though:
Three black borders in 9 packs is pretty awesome. Saunders is a former Hokie. I considered collecting him, but lost interest pretty quickly.
Getting 2 cards for my player collections and 1 for the set is pretty good given what I already have, and the rest of the cards were pretty good, so not bad for 9 loose packs. BTW, the loose packs were 25% off, so they ended up being $2.25 apiece, or about the price of a blaster all together. Not bad for Ginter.
Stay tuned in the next few days for the Rack Packs and Blaster.
