Yesterday I began the process of ripping my first 2016 Allen & Ginter box. And then earlier today I had a chance to rip pack #2. Of course, I'm way too impatient to settle for only pack today so let's rip another!
Box 1 - Pack 3:
13. Kevin Gausman
36. Alex Rodriguez
117. Robin Yount
120. Kenta Maeda
131. Brooks Robinson
280. Paul O'Neil
340. Roberto Osuna (short print)
Regular mini: 142. Jake Arrieta
I first read about the drama involving card #120 over on Night Owl's blog - it turns out there are two versions of card #120 (both Dodgers). The common version is the Maeda rookie that I pulled. There is also a super short print #120 (Julio Urias). I would have liked to pull the Urias instead given what people are selling them for on eBay right now.
On the other hand, as a set collector the question is: Do I consider both versions of card #120 part of the base set? I do consider the "regular" short prints part of the base set...how about the super short prints?
I have no idea what to think of it...maybe if I pull myself the Urias I'll give it more thought!
