My first box of 2016 Allen & Ginter has been a complete success in my book. I pulled two decent "regular" relics in Puig and Soler plus a rather rare framed relic of Pedroia. I found the Julio Urias (super?) short print base card to go along with a Brooklyn back mini (#/25) of Francisco Rodriguez. And the best part? All of that came in the first 16 packs.
Let's rip two more and see if this box is still holding another great surprise!
37. Dawn Spacecraft
183. Andrew McCutchen
211. Albert Pujols
248. Jill Martin
291. Kevin Kiermaier
292. Marcell Ozuna
The Numbers Game: 64. Dallas Keuchel
Reg mini (short print): 317. Yordano Ventura
The short printed regular minis are fairly tough pulls this year (seeded 1:13 packs). Not a lot else to say about this pack except that I love getting spacecraft in my Ginter set! So far, I think my two favorite base cards are the Dawn Spacecraft and the US Embassy in Cuba that I pulled in an earlier pack.
12. Trevor Story
91. Nick Hundley
133. Joc Pederson
164. Steven Souza Jr.
189. Buster Posey
The Numbers Game: 83. Matt Kemp
Natural Wonders: 19. Ngorongoro Crater
Reg. mini: 128. Aroldis Chapman
Nothing Earth shattering in either pack but that's ok - there were some nice base cards (esp. the spacecraft) and I'm happy with the Natural Wonders card as well.
