    This Ginter talk gave me the itch. I bought 3 boxes today and did very well. Pulled two autos, Crawford and some other dude. Pulled a Zambrano Silk card
    and a Papelbon rip card......numbered 58/75..JERSEY #!!!!!!

    Still did not pull a Babe Ruth. Surely someone on here has an extra!

    Kevin
  • They must have really over produced A&G this year. It was gone from retail by Oct 1st last year.

    anyone have any rip cards they want to trade i need 10 more to complete the set of 50. i have some extras to trade and a whole bunch of other stuff.

    i need rip mini #'s 353,356,362,366,369,371,373,378,383,390.
  • I have to admit the card is pretty nice. I was at the card shop today and he had a couple hobby boxes. Tried to get me to buy one. But, the market was so flooded this year that I can't justify buying anymore. I've got what I'm looking for already. I would like the Big Foot cards though.
  • BunchOBullBunchOBull Posts: 6,194 ✭✭✭
    I'm just looking for the remaining Frank printing plates, the Bazooka back number 01/25, and a NNO mini.

    Nice run you've got there Doran...very nice. I keep hoping the Frank silk from '09 Topps pops up numbered 01/58...I'd love to own the first of both of his silk cards.

    And Kevin...I know...this blaster had been sitting on the shelf for 6 months or more...I've looked at it a million times. Today was the day. While it wasn't spectacular, you can't ask for a much better blaster across the board...unless there is a king or something in it.

    I just thought I would visit this thread one last time before it is buried forever in the dust left by 2009. I was at my card shop today and picked up three
    boxes of 2008 Ginter. I had been on a tear pulling 3 rips and 2 plates from these "boxes off the truck". As many of you know, I am a huge Phillies fan
    and a huge Ryan Howard fan. I was lucky enough to pull an N43 box topper autograph of Howard months ago. Today I did the impossible and pulled the Game Used
    N43 Ryan Howard. These are 1:256 packs and there are 10 of them in the set. What are the chances not only of pulling two cards, one 1:400+ boxes the
    other 1:250+ boxes of the same player AND of the player you collect!

    oh and then I turned it over......numbered on the back 6/25 HIS JERSEY #!!!

    What magic are you planning for 2009?

    Good Luck to all!

    Kevin

    I bought a blaster about a month back and pulled a shark and no number mini Ichiro. Both went on ebay and helped offset the cost of my 2009 case.

    Good stuff Kevin.

    Coincidentally I just came from Topps online store where I ordered 10 packs of 08 AG for $29.90 delivered. I just can't wait for my 09 stuff.

    It has been a long time since I have posted. Unfortunately, due to life's unfortunate circumstances, I have to sell my Allen & Ginter collections. I would rather avoid the eBay route and give the folks here first crack. All cards are mint and have been kept in binders/sheets in a non-smoking, non-humid environment.

    Here is what I need to sell/move...

    2006 Base set (1-350 w/SPs), 30 Dick Perez cards, and 16 misc minis/relics. Highlight of the minis/relics is a Mark Grudzielanek bazooka mini #1/25

    2007 Base Set (1-350 w/SPs), 30 Dick Perez, all 50 flag minis, all 10 Roman emperor minis, the complete 5 card snakes set, 18 misc relics and autos (including a Jon Papelbon auto), and 30 misc minis (Mantle AG, Dice-K AG, Ichiro and Bruce Lee black borders...).

    2008 Base set (1-350 w/SPs and the Kosuke Fu*udome NNO), all 50 state cards, all 20 World's Greatest Victories cards, all 50 world leader minis, all 17 baseball legends minis, all 10 Team Orange minis, all 5 pioneers of aviation and all 5 deadliest sharks cards, 12 misc World Icons minis, 23 misc relics and autos (including an Andre Ethier auto), and 25 misc minis which include an Ichiro black border and a couple extra Team Orange.

    I've priced these out on eBay and have discounted roughly 20% to the averages I've seen there. I am selling each binder individually or will sell all three for an additional discount, but I will not piecemeal anything within each binder. These prices are also firm.

    2006 binder: $50
    2007 binder: $150
    2008 binder: $130

    Or, all three binders for $300.


    I will foot shipping within the lower 48, but any further and we'll need to negotiate that.

    Please reply by private message if interested. Thanks!

    Hi Mosaic

    It's good to hear from you, I wish it was under better circumstances, but I hope things will get better. You have been an excellent trading board member for a long
    time. Those prices you have listed are a very good deal to someone. Wish I could help you out but heritage had me at hello.
