My 2020 Ginter Framed Relic Collection is Nearly Complete!

I haven't bought myself a single pack of 2021 cards.  Instead, I've been putting my "card cash" towards purchases of older cards that have been lingering on my want list.  This year alone, I've placed two big orders with Sportlots and another order with COMC, plus a fair number of eBay purchases.  

Speaking of eBay purchases, my latest envelope to arrive at my house held a single card that I bought off of the 'bay.

That's a Roger Clemens relic from the 2020 Allen & Ginter framed relic set.  The Clemens was the third-to-last card that I needed for the 70 card relic set.  With the Clemens in hand, I'm now only missing two cards:
2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Wants:
Framed relics:  
MFR-HA Hank Aaron - Milwaukee Braves
MFR-TW Ted Williams - Boston Red Sox
Unfortunately, both missing cards are "whales" within the set!  Who knows how long it will take me to track either of those cards down...never mind getting both of them!

At this point, the real question is probably which set will I complete first - the 2010 Allen & Ginter framed relic set or the 2020 framed relic set?

For the 2010 set, I still need quite a few relics (seven total) but the missing relics don't have the same "name power" as the missing 2020 relics.
2010 Topps Allen & Ginter Wants:
Framed relics:  
AJ.  Avery Jenkins
DH.  Dan Haren
DU.  Dan Uggla
KF.  Kosuke Fukudome
LB.  Lance Berkman
NF.  Neftali Feliz
RH.  Ryan Howard (bat only)
I guess all I can try and do is slowly chip away at both sets when/if a relic comes up for sale that is affordable.  On the bright side, my current plan is to only chase the relic set on the years ending in zero so I've got nine more years before I will start another relic build!


  1. That's awesome that you're down to only two cards. Hope you're able to complete it sooner than later.

  2. Good luck on the 2 whales to finish. ["Abide" on SCF / TCDB]
