Box Break: 2011 Allen & Ginter, Gint-A-Cuffs 3 (Bait Bait, Ain't It Great)

First and foremost, I'm collecting the Base Set, SPs included. I'll also be dabbling in completing the Ascent Of Man insert (I'm a sucker for colorful things), Hometown Heroes, Animals in Peril, and Step Right Up. I'll update my Want List soonish.

Oh, and just upfront, I bummed all of the below scans off of good old internet folk, since I lack a scanner of my own and don't have the patience or time to take that many pictures. So not everything that scored me points is pictured, because that would take forever. My box is not the winning box, so I figured it wasn't that huge of a deal.

If you see something you like, leave a comment and we'll get the ball rolling on a trade, or I'll add it to your pile if we're already in talks.

Boxtopper:


Teixeira N43 (+5) - I imagine I should lose points since it's a Yankee, but the Commish didn't specify when it comes to your run o' the mill N43s. I'll check in on that, and I did. Haven't heard back yet.

Better than what I expected to end up with points-wise as I was going about busting packs. I should be in for next year's edition of Ginter Madness in all likelihood.

  1. You are the second box with ALL Red Sox hits. I got one in mine too. Is this an ESPN set?

  2. :O Hit-wise you got virtually the same box as My Cardboard Mistress!

  3. Hey Greg! May you set the Nishioka mini aside for me? Thanks,bro!

  4. crap, too late on the Nishi mini. Well, the Revere black would be nice.

  5. An interesting box, you would think they could mix up the hits a little better.
    I would be interested in any Mets and Yankees since I am buying very little of the A&G this year.

  6. Once the first two Red Sox hits popped out, I knew the third one would follow suit.

    Oh, and I'm also collecting Uninvited Guests.

    Spiegel- Sure, it's yours.

    Rhubarb- Yup yup.

    B.A.- Not sure if I have any doubles of Mets/Yanks, but I'll set 'em aside if I do.

  7. Dude...that seriously sucks. I know it sucks because I also scored 186 with an all-Red Sox box. then the first hit of my second box was ANOTHER Lackey.
