The Final Final Blaster Box (Maybe)

Posted: January 26, 2009 in Baseball, Blog

Well I know I just posted stating that we had purchased our last box of 2008 Allen & Ginter, however that changed. This is the story: we were strolling through our local Target looking at baby stuff, when we spotted 2 boxes of Allen & Ginter. So after discussing the economic times and how close we are to finishing the set, the wife finally agreed. Who knows maybe she will even surprise me tomorrow and pick up the last blaster box at Target while I am at work.

Yet, out of this one blaster box, we pulled 15 cards needed for our set, one relic card, and a black border mini of Mark Teixeira. Now we are down to needing just 66 cards, so if you have any we need (the list is on the trade page) please let us know. My goal is to finish our set by the time my son is born.

With the 2008 Allen & Ginter, my wife and I have found a number of ways to collect. First we were only going to collect the base cards, then we included the SP (Short Print), and after talking a little bit about it we added in the state flag cards. Well today we were looking around and we were surround by minis, so we started a binder for just the base and SP minis (normal and A&G back). Not really sure what to do with the black border ones yet, but at this rate anything can happen.
