Allen & Ginter Anniversary Edition

I did not participate in this years Allen & Ginter's Gint A Cuffs, but my wife bought me a box for our 25th Anniversary.  Actually she first bought me a nook from Barnes and Nobles, which I was psyched about at first until I found out how few books are out as ebooks and how expensive the other ones were.  So we took it back and then I got the box.  I do not know why I continue to want boxes cause there are not usually many Padres hits and I can get a team set cheap on the bay, it is an excitement. 

 I opened the boxtopper and thought I had got Beardy or Ryan's box, also I got two baseball highlight sketch but they are both of Yankees, the Idiot and the Captain.
I did alright on the odds, everything came out just right.  I also got a Worlds Wordsmith of Homer, but I collect author cards so I am going to try and complete that set. 
These are the player minis, I also got John Garland of the Padres, but I will keep that one also. Everything else above is up for trade. 

I got 3 relics and an auto out of the box also.  Danks and Butler are jersey pieces, Adam is a piece of bat and Mr. Maybin signed the card.  I really like the framed relics and mini's this year.  I will probably put these on ebay.

Hang on to that Markakis N-43 if you don't mind. I'd love to trade for it.

I figured you would probably want it. It's yours

That is an old jersey on the Butler card. The Royals haven't worn black since 2006.
