This pack has a bunch of stuff to discuss - exactly why I like Allen & Ginter so much year in and year out! Beginning at the top, Monica Abbott is a softball player who set NCAA DI records for wins, strikeouts, and shutouts for Tennessee from 2004-07. That's pretty impressive and certainly worthy of the "World's Champions" moniker.
I mentioned the Numbers Game cards before - they sure are loaded with numbers! I had to scan the back of one simply to show off how nice they are (in terms of information at least). Then again, I'm a numbers guy to begin with so maybe only I will like this set...
The Baseball Legends set reminds me too much of Gypsy Queen - and while I will try to collect the full thing (because I'm a sucker for all things Ginter), I can't say it's the most exciting set. I was, however, excited to pull my first mini insert - and once again I want to remind everyone to keep me in mind for any mini inserts that you pull - I'm sure to need a lot of them by the time I finish my boxes off!
