The first, and last Allen & Ginter post on Waxaholic.

This week marks the start of my least favourite time. Ginter time. Don't get me wrong, I love the product. And if I had more $$$ I'd chase the set. But we here in blogger land know what Ginter time means. It means All Ginter All the time. 24/7 on approximately 365 blogs for the next 6-8 weeks.
Now I try and read all of your blogs, because I truly enjoy reading everyone's differing opinions on stuff. The world is flat, Johnny Depp is a good actor, Yadier Molina is a good catcher... you know.... But sometimes it gets to be too much.
So, like last year, I will make one post about A&G and then no more (unless a card or two gets shown off in a trade post of course) After this, you may come to Waxaholic for a brief respite and a Ginter free zone.
We'll have cake and punch. It'll be fun.

So on we go to my two pack break. Here's what $9 got me.
Pack One:
First card I see, Brandon Beachy. Awesome.
 And to bring me crashing back down to Earth, Ty Wigginton.
 a former Brave, Rafael "I go where the big money is" Soriano
 A hit! It's.... It's ...... Robinson Crusoe. Er... Cano. Craptastic. A guy you hardly hear about, until he lucked out in the Home Run competition. But seriously, why was he even there? If anybody actually collects this guy, offer me a Brave relic somethingorother and we'll swap.
 another former Brave, Mini Derrick Lee.
 Strasburgjo!!!! A year too late I guess...
 and some worthless insert of Lance Berkman.
 Pack Two: Can I improve on pack one???
No. The answer is no.

Miguel Cabrera.
 Nick Swisher. And my scanner is not playing tricks, nor am I hurt like Night Owl, it really is that bad off center.
 former Brave Tim Collins. We had Tim for five minutes before trading him away for some Maple Bats.
 The man no one wants.... Carlos Zambrano
 Grady Sizemore
 Mini Marmol! I always think of Robert Munsch when I say his name...
 One of the Astros many pitchers named Rodriguez.... this one is Wandy. Seriously. Wandy.
 and how would any pack break for a 2011 baseball product be complete, without a David DeJesus card.
All except Mr Beachy are for trade.... especially for any Braves or Adam LaRoche cards you may have.

Have fun Gintering!!!!!! Come back here for a well deserved break.

I pulled a mini Beachy and a regular Freeman if you want them.

Probably Ginter free for me.

I think I know someone who collects Cano

Captain Canuck said...

love you Suzy... ever so helpful. Is it you? Or is this going to be like cracking the Ginter Code?

Find the Cano Collector!!!

Trey J. said...

I'll look around and see if I can find some Braves for you. I'd be interested in the Berkman. Mostly cause he is an ex Astro AND I've got many great memories of New Braunfels, Texas. I'd even take the Wandy off your hands if we can work something out.

Do you really think you do not know a Cano collector? Hold it for me and i will find something for you.

Nothing wrong with Ginterless blogging. I'll admit I've debated jumping into the Baseball game with A&G. Still haven't decided. I guess it's back to waiting out the lockout for me...

Captain Canuck said...

dayf: Very good.. I can always rely on you for the random and obscure.

Casey: you bet I want 'em... put 'em in my pile, thanks.

Trey: the Astros are yours.

Marie: so Pujolies has a bad year and off the bandwagon and onto Cano hey? Cool. The Robbie is yours.

More than likely won't see much (if any) Ginter on mine either. We non-Ginters have to stick together!

A2 Wolverine said...

I've got a McLouth auto...I'd use the Cano as trade bait.

You won't see any Ginter from me, either, unless it involves Hope Solo. And when there's a woman like Solo involved...
