Allen & Ginter Week: 2012 Blaster x2

If you don't see Jake Gyllenhaal on the front of that box, you're blind.

Bryce Harper RC...or Bryciepoo as we call him in our house.

Short prints because...well, just because.

That Jackie Robinson card is a thing of beauty.  I'm always happy to land a Verlander...even if he does have a slight Goomba-head.

Very nice.

World's Tallest Buildings is a decent set, but you just ended up with too many of them.  Seed the 10-card sets a little lighter, Topps.

Larry and Dave dropped in from Willow Cove.  I once had the pleasure of speaking with Dave's Deputy, Mr. Danny Young.

What's in a Name? Letters...

These are either regular backs or A&G backs.  I don't remember.


These are definitely black borders, though.

Caesar looks a little pale.  His salad is delicious, though.  <-is p="" say="" that="" to="" weird="">Horatio Nelson -> Horatio Alger -> Flowers for Algernon....that's what my brain does.  Flowers for Algernon is amazing and if you've never read it, you should.

I'm just going to go ahead and say these are the two best whales.  Sperm Whale is a close third.  Narwhal is awesome and deserves to be in a class by itself.

Another day, another relic.  I still really like the black borders.

Come back tomorrow for some 2013 A&G.

The narwhal is the unicorn of the sea.
