Allen & Ginter 2010 Some packs from Target

I went to my Target and got 5 packs of Allen & Ginter 2010 and one Rack Pack of 2010 A&G. I also got one of those Extreme Value box packages from The Fairfield Company This one was the $9.99 version that had 4 packs (2007 Goudey, 2007 Upper Deck Series Two, 2007 Fleer Ultra, and 2004 UD Power UP) & 100 cards + Bonus. Well the Bonus turned out to be another pack (2004 MLB Showdown Card Game). I like the thrill of the hunt from these card boxes but I hate that they super glue the packs to the cardboard supports in the box. It makes it difficult to take the packs off the cardboard frame without bending or tearing the cards within to Hades, or you have to cut the packs which I haven't done but am thinking about doing next time. But this is not about that box this is about the 2010 ALLEN & GINTER packs I got. Since these are the retail packs of A&G there are 6 cards per pack (4 base, 1 mini and 1 "This Day In History" card), the Rack Pack is a 12 card pack.

  1. Those security blanks were to ensure no one stole the #7 Ryan Howard card... some valuable stuff right there!!
