Delivery Time! 2010 Allen & Ginter in the House!

Anyone who reads my blog for any length of time probably realizes that I am a huge fan of the Allen & Ginter line of cards.  A few days ago, blog reader Tommy contacted me and offered up three base minis plus a couple of mini insert cards in exchange for some of my extra Ginter cards.  Consider that a done deal!

First, I was able to whittle my regular back mini want list down to 36 cards thanks to the three that Tommy sent my way.

In case you are wondering, here's what I still need from the regular back mini set:
6, 8, 20, 34, 51, 54, 58, 59, 91, 97, 106, 107, 109,  114, 137, 170, 178, 181, 184, 187, 200, 212, 228, 230, 231, 235, 241, 246, 254, 266, 274, 278, 280, 289, 294, 298
Next, a couple of tricky to find mini cards out of the World's Biggest set:

Russia:

Meteor Shower:

I'm getting closer to completing that set as well - in fact, here are the remaining 2010 Allen & Ginter insert cards that I need:
World's Biggest:  6, 7, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 19, 21, 25Celestial Stars:  CS 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
Tommy also threw in a couple of 2008 Upper Deck StarQuest parallels that I needed.

Honestly, I don't know why I'm still trying to collect these - it was a foolish decision on my part back in '08.  Even so, I appreciate it anytime I can knock some cards off my want list so consider me happy!

Thanks for all the great cards!  As always, if anyone else would like to trade - check out my want list and make an offer!
