All The Hits From My Allen & Ginter Case!

with 9 comments

Ladies and gents, I’ve spent this rainy morning in Louisville scanning all the hits from my case of 2010 Allen & Ginter.  Pretty much all of this is up for trade/sale, but hurry, because a lot of this will end up on eBay soon!  Make sure to check out my trade list for this year’s set, as I have a lot of needs/extras!

First up, are the hits that I am definitely keeping…the Cueto auto didn’t come from my case, I acquired that in a trade.

Next up, the autos and rip card (which I ripped in 2.2 seconds after seeing it was Hudson)!:

On to the best of the jersey relics:

The rest of the jersey relics:

The bat relics:

The last of the bat relics and my mini hits (the red auto was in the rip card):

Let me know if there is anything in here you need!!

I’m FINALLY getting a chance to sit down and sort through everything from the case I bought…I’ll also add this to my want list at the right, and it will probably take me a couple days to fully update it (Much more to be added to this list…I’m going to need a TON of base cards that aren’t listed yet).  I’ll also follow up with a post with scans of some of the better hits.  For now though, just the list!

Picked Up Two Of My Error Cards This Week…Wait, What??

with 2 comments

As many of you probably know, I was awarded a card in this year’s Allen & Ginter set (card #165 to be exact!).  My goal has been to collect each of the 12 versions of the card and I’ve done pretty well so far.  I bought an entire case of Ginter this year and was lucky enough to pull 8 of my cards…7 base cards and 1 A&G back mini.  I was able to pick up a black border mini off ebay pretty quickly, and I’ve got a regular mini in the mail on the way to me.  Today I won an auction for the only no-number mini I’ve seen, for only a couple bucks (funny thing is, I offered the seller $10 just to end it early and get it out to me…he declined the offer).  I’ve been negotiating with a guy on one of the printing plates, but haven’t heard a thing about the other three, or the wood card (if you hear of anyone having these PLEASE let me know…I can make it well worth it!).

That just leaves the silk cards…I’m guessing if you’re reading this you know about the silk cards in A&G, but if not, each mini card in the set was also created on silk rather than cardboard, and there are only 10 copies of each silk card that were made.  I stumbled upon an ebay auction a couple weeks ago that has Brett Gardner’s silk card, only it had my name on it.  I had no clue if it was just an error on his card that ended up with my name on there, or if it was an error to my card where his picture ended up there.  After seeing another *correct* Gardner silk show up on ebay, I’m convinced there will be no correct silk of mine…oh well, at least I have my name on it and can say that I officially have an error card…

After speaking with Jason Wong, the 2008 champ, he told me he had only seen 2 of his 10 silk cards before (he was only able to get his hands on one).  Luckily, I’ve got two already and hopefully another on the way.

Oh yeah, Jason was kind enough to send me one of his signed cards (see above)…he’s a class act.

Speaking of signed cards, my first batch goes out tomorrow to everyone who sent me cards (still feels weird to sit down and spend time autographing things…don’t know if I’ll ever get used to that).  I was finally able to get a PO box, so for those of you wanting TTM autos of my card, please send it with a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

Nick Jacoby
PO Box 43196
Louisville, KY  40253

If you could, please send any versions of my card that are extras that I can keep (especially the minis).  I have a ton of friends and family asking for them!

Two Ginter Code Champions Teaming Up for 2010?

with 4 comments

That’s a crazy rumor I heard on the street today…Mr. Jason Wong himself, along with me, Nick Jacoby, may or may not be teaming up to tackle this monster of a code.  Ginter needs to be released in the winter so I don’t feel bad sitting inside all day analyzing every pixel of every card when the weather is so nice!

If Jason and I don’t crack this thing, I hope it is one of you fellow bloggers!

By the way, if any of you pulled cards with my mug on it, let me know so I can send something your way to get them!  I’ve got more people asking for a copy than I know what to do with, so it would be a huge help!
