Ginter Nine....DONE

It's been awhile since I have posted a competed nine, so I thought I would share with you my completed page of relics/autos from Ginter 2010. Whoops, looks like we have a Drew duplicate in the binder (why didn't I notice that earlier??). As you can see, my pulls included my first red auto, a supposedly popular auto of a professional bowler and a yet-to-be-redeemed auto of latest Pirate talent Andrew McCutchen. I am looking forward to that one. As relics go, I could have had worse luck I suppose.

Since I originally scanned these, I have dived (doven?) into some retail packs and have actually pulled a couple more shiny relics to add to this list. They are not scanned yet, but let me jump on eBay to see if I can find them...

Ah yes, the perpetual Aramis Ramirez pulling-ability has reared it's ugly head once again. He was my very first hit pull ever, and the hobby continues to remind me that Aramis Ramirez does, in fact, play for the Cubs. Maybe there is a hidden Lincoln etched into the bat.

Another Cubby from a retail pack, Jeff Samardzija, who is currently mired in AAA but is expected to make a call-up before next week. I don't know a whole lot about the pitcher, but a smurfy blue jersey is a welcome change of pace from the rest of the pack.

Of course I only have room for nine relics, so if any of these are jumping out at you and you want to make the swap, I would be happy to discuss with you! Leave a note or send an email.


  1. I only count 7 relics and 3 autos.

    Maybe even 2.5 autos...

  2. well, since the McCutchen is still unredeemed, it is technically a zero, but even if I do redeem it, it will most likely still be a zero until Topps sends me an auto "of equal value".
