5 Retail Packs: Pack #3
August 19th, 2009 by slangon

Last Ginter pack. Go.

Pack #3: 2009 Allen & Ginter
09AGloney#69 James Loney – You know what I like about the Dodgers? That the number on the front of their uniform is red. That’s called a pop color.

09AGteixiera#137 Mark Teixiera – Although I’m not a fan of the Evil Empire, this is a pretty nice card. Game action. Horizontal format. Home run trot. Actually, is that a home run trot? Or did he hit a deep fly ball, the center fielder just caught it, and now he’s taking a sharp turn towards the dugout?

09AGcarpenter#239 Chris Carpenter – Wipe that smirk off your face, Carpenter. When you get through a full season without hurting yourself, then you can smirk.

09AGjeter#323 Derek Jeter – Funny tidbit about me and Derek Jeter. We share the same birthday. As in we were born on the same exact day, June 26 1974. I guess if I were a Yankees fan, that’d be cool. Now it’s just annoying.

09AGleeAGM#72 Carlos Lee Mini A&G Back – You know that guy that somehow always shows up at every party you have, even though you never invite him?

09AGjurrjensNP#NP50 Jair Jurrjens – I was going to write some smart-ass stuff about the Mets win over the Bravo’s last night, but then I realized how ridiculous that was. Instead, I’ll just say it’s nice to see a young pitcher who certainly seems to be on his way.

Well, it’s starting to look like I’m at the saturation point with 2009 Allen & Ginter. I think out of the last 10 packs I’ve opened, I’ve only gotten a couple of cards that I needed. Looks like it’s time to try and finish out the set through trades.

So we’ve gotten over the hump on these 5 packs. The last 2 are Topps Series 2. Stay tuned.
