The other night when I got home from work I was greeted with a package on my doorstep. I knew exactly what it was and couldn't wait to open it. I had bought a box of Allen & Ginter and Topps Chrome from Big D's Cards in North Carolina. Jimmy the owner has been great to me with buying box from him. Today I thought I would share my hits from A&G. I will be honest I wasn't sure if I want to buy a box or not due to the fact that I haven't had the greatest luck in the past. I will let everyone judge if I did good or not.
The first cool card I pulled was a 10th anniversary issue border card of Chad Tracy. I recognized the name, but wasn't really familiar with how he was a player. After doing some research I found he only played 9 years spending 6 of them with the Diamondbacks. He actually had a good career with them, but the next three years he really didn't do much else. I believe now he is a special instructor with the Nationals.
My first relic that I pulled took me about half way through the box before I pulled it. A Ryan Braun uniform piece relic. It is just a plain white piece of the uniform, but it is in the shape of the number 10 for their anniversary (10 is also my favorite number which I wear for playing sports). Now with the Braun card I wasn't overally excited about either. He has been linked to steroids and he has lied about the use of them I could care less.
Next relic another uniform piece, but featuring a gray away uniform of the Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia. Captain Crunch as has struggle lately, but at one point in his career he was one of the most feared pitcher in the game. Maybe he can bounce back to his old self or maybe he will have luck pitching out of the bullpen which I just read a rumor about today.
I don't if this card is any good or not. Some young pitcher for the New York Mets, Noah Syndergaard. I also read that the autographs come in two colors, blue which is common and red which is out of /10. This is probably one of the best cards that I have actually ever pulled. It didn't come until the second to the last pack in the box. When I looked at it, I knew this card made the box for me.
