2012 Topps Allen and Ginter Gold Border Mini Pack

In the 2012 Topps Allen and Ginter Value Packs available in retail stores you get a bonus pack with three "gold bordered" mini cards.  I bought one of these value packs tonight and let's see what we got.

Chris is on pace to record 48 saves this year which would be twelve more than he has in 2011.  His 2011 total of 36 saves was 13 more than his 2010 total.  So with that in mind, I'm projecting 60 saves for Chris in 2013.

I fell like this photo of Adam was taken right after he was designated for assignment.  

#123 Adam Lind Gold Mini
 At first I thought this card was mis-cut but it's just that Greg's photo is not perfectly centered on the card.
#292 Greg Gumbel Gold Mini
 The coloring of the cards isn't any different than the standard 2012 mini.  Here's Ichiro's mini to compare:
#229 Ichiro Mini
The difference seems to only be in that these special gold bordered cards have gold part that is bled all the way to the edge of the card.
