Autograph Week: Turning an Auto into Relics

I recently completed my second trade with Greg from Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle.  I sent Greg a Mike Stanton Autograph from the 2011 Topps Lineage set in exchange for a few relics that I need for my own 2010 Allen & Ginter relic set.  You can read about his end of the trade on his blog here.

This is my idea of a great trade - I ended up trading away a bunch of extra A&G inserts, plus the aforementioned autograph and managed to land three two relics from my set.

Here's what I got:

AGR-DWR.  David Wright

For some reason, when Greg offered this card I didn't realize that I already owned it.  As such, this one is available for trade...

The next two relics are most definitely not for trade as I needed both of them.

AGR-IC.  Ivory Crockett

The Crockett relic contains an "authentic shirt" of Ivory's...though it's a white swatch and his shirt in the photo is blue.  (I could pretend that the swatch is from the lettering but I highly doubt it.)  Even so, it's a cool card, and a tough one to track down!

AGR-KK.  Kelly Kulick

This is a perfect example of what makes me love Allen & Ginter so much.  Where else can you get a relic card containing a piece of a bowling shoe?  At this point, I have 63 different relics from the 2010 Allen & Ginter set - if you happen to have one that I still need, I'd love to try and trade for any and all that I'm missing!
