2014 Topps Allen & Ginter's Jumbo Pack #2: My First Red, Mini Maddux, and Mardi Gras

If all goes well, my hobby boxes of 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter should be here on Friday.  That will give me something to open (except for the one box that I'll need to save for Gint-a-Cuffs).  Unlike previous years, I didn't lock in a case of Ginter early enough (never had the money) and with current prices being what they are (i.e. incredibly high for some reason), I won't be getting a case this year.  That makes me sad - but it also means that I'll try to be a lot more proactive on the trade front in order to complete my set.  So before I get to the next retail jumbo pack, let me say this:

I WANT YOUR 2014 TOPPS ALLEN & GINTER'S INSERT CARDS (reg. sized, minis, and box toppers).  If you have any for trade, please let me know!

Now, let's get to the second jumbo pack!  This time, there was no great hit so I'll start with the top panel.

27. David Ortiz
56.  Jason Heyward
96.  Madison Bumgarner
190.  Kolton Wong
221.  Adam Eaton
236.  J.D. Martinez
338.  Andy Pettitte

That's one less short print that I'll need to track down.  Other than that though, I have to say it was a boring top half.  Let's hope the bottom half is more interesting.

58.  Tyler Skaggs
102.  Todd Frazier

My first Red out of Ginter!
257.  Adrian Beltre
Pastime's Pastimes:  Jered Weaver
Festivals & Fairs:  Mardi Gras

As I said before I posted the contents of this pack, I'm hoping to complete ALL the insert sets (both large and small).  As such, I'm happy to land the Mardi Gras card!
Reg. mini:  127.  Greg Maddux

A&G back mini:  149.  Jose Canseco

I don't currently plan to complete this year's mini base set.  I think my hands will be plenty full trying to track down all the insert cards - and plus, I need something for trade bait!

Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

Sat Nam Kriya Yoga

Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.

Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

Ananda Vrindavan Campu PDF

Govinda Lilamrta PDF
