2012 Topps Allen & Ginter Retail

Allen & Ginter is always a hot set. So I suppose I'll rip some retail!

My personal opinion of A&G is so-so. I'm not nuts about the base set in terms of set collecting but they do make for nice TTM autos. The framed mini GU and AUs are pretty nice. The Ginter code chase thing is way beyond my patience level so I don't really bother.

Here's what I got!

Jon Lester...an important part of the struggling Red Sox this season.

The minis fall one-per-pack. Here is Miguel Cabrera. Hard to believe he isn't even 30 yet.

Something old, something new! Brooks Robinson and Brandon Belt.

Uh oh... something thick!

Nice! Mitch Moreland framed AU. A nice retail hit. I've enjoyed following the Rangers since their resurgence (I guess it is just a "surgence" since they were never contenders until recently) and Moreland is certainly an important part of their organization.

Nice!
