Thread: Ginter Mania!
03-10-2013, 12:43 AM #1
Soooooo I may have been getting a little crazy buying up discounted blasters of 2011 and 2012 Allen and Ginter. To boot, my LCS has a bid board each week and an entire page of mostly 2011 A&G relics (9 of them) were up for grabs this week. Sent my wife there with my max bids to bid and pay for anything while I slept this afternoon. My haul from the bid board:
2012 Ubaldo Jimeneze Relic
2011 Papelbon Relic
2011 Geovony Soto Relic x2 (1 gray, 1 white w/ blue stripe)
2011 Xavier Nady Relic
2011 Aaron Hill Relic
2011 Jacoby Ellsbury Relic
2011 J.D. Drew
2011 Ivan Rodriguez
2008 Francouer Relic
Plus a 15-count page of minis, 5 inserts and 10 players. Of the 10 players, only 1 was one that I had. Picked it all up for a cool $15. Also, besides the obvious Geovony Soto dupe, only the Papelbon was a dupe of the relics I have, so really an excellent pickup there. There was a Chipper Jones relic I probably could have nabbed for an extra $3 but it was warped a little excessively so I stayed away from it.
I also have my promised 2011 Hobby Box break to post. I can promise you it won't be very exciting, but it'll go down in this thread/space. 3 relics that weren't very convincing and nothing else exciting. With all the Target discounted blaster craziness, found 3 more 2012 A&G blasters this morning that I quickly grabbed on my way home from work since I got stuck there for an extra hour and Target opened. There were some others that weren't marked as discounted I tried to convince the cashier to ring up at $11.99 since I had 3 that were clearly marked $11.99, but she didn't quite understand what I was trying to say (must not have had her coffee yet?) so I just went with the 3. I refilled one of my hobby box shells of 2012 A&G I have lying around with the retail packs, so I feel like I have a whole box again! Opened 3 this morning since I couldn't sleep and there wasn't much exciting. Pulled 2 base cards I needed and that was about it. More to come after work!
