It's hard to believe that July is almost over already. The month certainly flew by...and with school starting back up next month, I have a terrible feeling that my last couple weeks of summer vacation will be over before I know it!
At least I have some 2016 Allen & Ginter to cheer me up!
Box 2 - Packs 17 - 20:
Pack 17 had another base short print (Ryan Zimmerman) but the real highlight was my fifth mini insert out of the box - this time a Laureates of Peace card of Henry Dunant. Pretty cool - and now I am one card closer to completing that set.
Pack 18 had a Stephen Strasburg regular mini plus an Eddie Mathews Baseball Legends card (to go along with a David Price Numbers Game card). Nothing really jumped out at me though so I'm resting the scanner for this pack.
Pack 19 had a Nick Castellanos base short print and a Ty Cobb Legends of the Game card but the only thing worth scanning was the Jake Odorizzi A&G back mini - the third such A&G mini from the box.
Pack 20 yielded our third US Mayors card (yay!) along with a Numbers Game card of Jacob DeGrom. Of course, most people would find the Justin Verlander relic to be the star of the pack...but I think I prefer the mini!
That does it for those packs - only four packs remain in the box (and now we've located all three promised hits). Of course, the first box had 4 hits so you never know I guess!
Life is like a box of chocolates
