I mentioned this in my post yesterday, saying that I picked up a non-SP set of Allen & Ginter 2008 cards. At $10.00, it was too great an deal for me to refuse. So, I figured "Why not take care of a week's worth of posts by looking through the set and showing some of my favourites?". Seems like a plan. It beats being creative.
Before I start, I've got a question. It seems that a previous owner of these cards was a heavy smoker, and the cards do have that tell-tale odour. Is there any way to clean that from them? When my next door neighbour tried to burn his house down by welding on his front porch, I pretty much had to go through a bottle of Febreeze at a rate of 1 per room to clean the stench. I don't think that's the best option.
OK. Aroma related issues aside, away we go. I'll do this in groups of 50.
#16 - Hiroki Kuroda. I love this one because of the back of the card. Stats from his Japanese career on the back?! Awesome!
There's a quick thumb through the first 50 in the set.
