PACK BREAK: 2016 Allen & Ginter Baseball x2

After work yesterday I stopped by Duane’s Sports Cards to pick up supplies.  As you should know by now, I find it difficult to buy just supplies.  I’m not into baseball, but I know that the Allen & Ginter set is popular, so I bought a couple of packs.

I didn’t even know what I was looking for when I opened it in the shop.  I didn’t get any autographs or relics.  I checked Beckett.com for info on the set.  It appears I just ended up with commons.  I tend to buy two packs at a time and it’s what I’ve come to expect.

I ended up with one short print (#313 Stephen Vogt), but short prints are 1:2 packs.  Odds were the same on the Numbers Game insert set, but at least I did get a Mike Trout.  My other insert was a Reggie Jackson Baseball Legends.

Both of my minis were rookies: #126 Greg Bird and #190 Jon Gray.  I also pulled two base rookies: #125 Carl Edwards, Jr. and #231 Kaleb Cowart.

Nothing earth shattering, but I am a fan of retro-looking sets.  It’s unlikely I will pick up any more of these, but it was worth picking them up for the pure enjoyment of opening a couple of packs.
