What I've Been Up To...

I wanted to briefly assure those of you that read this blog and say, "Hey! This guy likes Allen & Ginter!  Why isn't he blabbing like crazy about it??" Well, I've been Gintering, I just haven't been posting about it.  In the past week I've opened a hobby case, some retail, and have made a couple Ginter-related eBay purchases as well.  I'm in the process of writing and posting a case recap/summary but that won't come out til probably August 1st or so (when I announce the contest winners).  I have, however, included a brief taste of my pulls.

I will tell you this much though.  I did okay on the case.  Not great, but not horrible either.  The cards I liked the most came from very unlikely places.

I'm going to try and update my haves/wants lists ASAP as there's still quite a bit on both of them.  I've decided this year I'm going to try and collect a set of the framed relics (mostly because the frames are purple and I love them), so if you happen to have any of those I'll trade for them because I almost certainly won't have them yet.

There will be plenty of minis that I'll still need as well (regular back and inserts).

Yes, I got 3 insert mini case hits instead of the normal 2!  WOO!

Last, but not least, I still have my contests going and they're still open to enter!  They all have a deadline of tomorrow at 11:59 PM so get in now!  There's even a couple of contests that still only have 3 entrants!


  1. Nice pulls, will enter some contests tonight. Finally scored some retail yesterday

  2. Can't wait to see how your case shapes up! I too am working on all the mini sets, plus (maybe) the framed relics...and the Pride of the People box toppers. Are you doing the mini parallels this year?

    1. Yeah, I do the regular back mini parallels every year. I've only actually finished one set so far though...

    2. Ok cool, I'll hold off on listing my regular back minis on eBay until I know what you want!
