2016 Allen & Ginter: Box #4 - The First Eight Packs (A Brooklyn Mini & an Autograph)!

When I first started opening up my Allen & Ginter boxes I was doing a single pack per post.  Before long I went to two packs per post, then four, and now eight.  I think that's a bit of a statement on the set seeing as how I now feel I have very little to say about most of the cards...

Anyhow, we've made it to the second half of my six box purchase.  Let's rip the first third of box #4!

Box #4:  Boxloader

Once again, I pull a basic boxloader - but again at least it is a new (to me) player.  So long as I don't get any duplicates I guess I'm happy enough - though part of me does hope to pull a rare boxloader still!

Box #4 - Packs 1 - 8:

Let me begin by saying that Box #4, through only eight packs, is already better than Box #2!  There are a LOT of highlights from this box, but let's begin with my second Brooklyn back mini card - this one numbered 02/25 (Brooklyn backs are seeded 1:146 packs so I've done well getting two in four boxes).

The other minis of note included an A&G back mini of Matt Harvey, a black bordered Brandon Drury, and a US Mayors card that I needed.  Good stuff there as well.

And finally, if the above stuff wasn't enough - I pulled my first 2016 Allen & Ginter autograph:

That's Trevor Story - the guy who had an amazing early part of the year!  Autographs aren't easy to pull this year - seeded 1:48 packs or about 1 per every other box.

At this rate, this box has a chance to usurp even the rather great box #1.  I'm obviously happy with the goodies so far - and now I can't wait to rip into the rest of the box!

That's a pretty impressive 8 pack run. Story's auto is pretty nice. That seems to be more rare these days.
