After this post, we will be halfway through box #3 of my 2016 Allen & Ginter purchase. As you'll see momentarily, the second hit lurks within the next four packs!
Box 3 - Packs 9 - 12:
Two more Numbers Game cards, two more base short prints (including a Trea Turner which is new to me I think). The Numbers Game cards were of Matt Harvey and Willie McCovey, both of which I think I needed as well.
Sticking with the regular sized cards, I pulled a pair of Baseball Legends. The Honus Wagner card is particularly nice if you ask me - it works within the old timey feel of Ginter!
My minis were also pretty good - three regular backs (but the Beltran is a short print) plus one insert - another nice Subways & Streetcars card.
For my money, the Subways & Streetcars is the early favorite for best mini set in 2016 Ginter.
And finally, the promised second hit of the box:
Yeah, that would probably mean more to me if I knew anything at all about racing. I've never even heard of Ricky Craven before - but at least the relic isn't grey or white.
That's it for the first half of the box. So far, it's been better than box #2 but still nowhere near the quality of the first box I opened.
