Making Serious Progress on my 2010 Allen & Ginter Relic Set! (A Sail and a Swimsuit)

Back in 2010, I went way overboard buying Allen & Ginter.  In fact, I ended up with so many packs (and so many relics) that I decided to try and collect the entire relic set.  The 2010 relic set was actually the first relic set that I had ever tried to complete...and it will likely be the last seeing how it is now 2016 and I'm still missing a lot of relics from the set.

However slow my progress may be, this past week saw a nice jump in the action.  Thanks to one seller offering combined shipping, I managed to grab two more relics for my collection.

The first is of Mike Parsons - Surfer of the World's Largest Wave on Record according to his card back.

The relic bit from Parsons is actually a piece of swimsuit.  That's certainly way more interesting than your typical white or grey swatch for most baseball player relics.

My other relic that I was able to land was of Zac Sunderland - Youngest to Sail Solo Around the World.

Sunderland's relic is even more unique - it's a piece of his sail (though not necessarily the sail from when he went around the world).

With those two additions, I now own 75 of the 100 relics.  For the record, here's what I still need just in case you have any 2010 Allen & Ginter relics lying around unloved.

Ginter's framed relics rule! Best of luck nabbing those final 25 cards for your set.
