I finally received my A&G box in the mail the other day. I've been so busy I haven't even really had a chance to take a look at it yet.
I can't believe I've been waiting for this since the middle of June. I really should have gotten on the ball a lot sooner to order a box.
Most of you have probably grown weary of Allen and Ginter by this time so I won't bore you all with every little detail of this box, but I will start with the boxtopper.
I actually forgot about these boxtoppers so it was a nice surprise. The planter's expression coupled with the "One Card Inside" inscription almost seems to say "Come on in, there's cards inside!! Get cracking buddy."
So I did. I got a Jay Bruce card. Really wish it would have been about three other guys besides Bruce, but it's nice I guess. I figured these cards were a lot bigger and thicker than this from looking at scans online. Sort of an anticlimatic beginning to my Ginter-Fest. He sort of looks blind in this card too. Weirds me out a little bit.
Here's the back if anyone's interested.
I'm too tired now, so I'm going to leave the rest for later.
