A few quick Allen and Ginter thoughts

15 07 2009

Boxes have arrived and the wife and I have opened two packs a piece. She’s already pulled a relic (Sizemore), a black bordered mini short print (or boarder, as Topps calls it), and one of the Greatest Hoaxes cards. I’ve gotten this:


I had no idea what was going on this card until I read about who Opstedahl is on the back.  Even now I can say it’s not the best choice of pictures.

And I must say that this is one instance where the scans of the cards look nicer then the cards themselves.  At least the pastel watercolor background ones.  I don’t think I’ve ever felt that way before.  The “live action” cards with the real baseball images look great, though.

And because of the overabundance of Ginter posts, I won’t be doing a pack by pack breakdown. I’ll just post some cards here and there that I like. Or don’t. Whatever.

Is that guy…ahh…shaving a sheep? Is this some kind of Scottish sport or something?

What would it take to pry that Sizemore relic loose?

That’s what he’s doing. He’s the sheep shearing shampion.

As far as the Sizemore relic, I’ll shoot you an email when I’m all done. In case I get anything else of interest.
