Most folks know about my preoccupation,
obsession and deranged interest in acquiring
the Topps Allen & Ginter issues 2006-2008.

Well, the sickness has a new symptom -
2009 Allen & Ginter. I had planned on
purchasing 5 cases with an option for
a sixth. Financial obligations and other
responsibilities have crashed that party.

While I had to eat a substantial restocking
fee on the cases, my chase for the 2009
set has progressed due to the generosity
and thoughtfulness of the fine members
here at Trading Card Central.

July 29th, I received the following from
Bob, (road_runner_1964) . . .

user posted image

That is every card (minus 1) that he pulled
from a two Hobby box break. An absolutely
remarkable gesture from Mr. 264, it will not
be forgotten.

August 3rd, I received these from
John (Johnny Number 5) . . .

Yes, that is a Bazooka in a batch of freebies.
Unbelievable, John! It will not go without just
compensation.

August 3rd, I received this from a trade
with Ankesh (coltsfan23) . . .

It's nice to have a Wood card this early in
the chase. Thanks for the trade, Ankesh.

August 6th, I received these from a trade
with Aaron (pspstatus) . . .

Love the Bazooka's, thanks for the trade Aaron

In yet another phenomenal act of generosity,

3 A & G back minis (1 is a SP) and 3 SP regular back

August 10th, I received this from
a trade with Lucas (troygoesdeep) . . .

Lucas went out of his way to offer me
a shot at this fine autograph. Thanks once again!



August 10th, I received this from
a trade with Chip (bravesfan09) . . .

Chip, I really appreciate this trade, the
No Number Minis are killer!

My partner Shawn (sasports) and I had a trade involving
other sets. He volunteered to help me out going
after some of the funky stuff out of this years Allen & Ginter.
Well, to say the least, he was successful.

He claims to be my student, well, today the teacher
has his hat in his hands for you Shawn. Thank you, immensely!

Folks, let there be no doubts, financial obligations notwithstanding, I am
going to chase this set as Hard, if not Harder than last years stuff.

To everyone that has traded, offered and sent me gifts from this issue . . .

I can't thank you enough and your contributions will be treasured.

Thanks for the looks & Collect Hard!,

I am very happy to contribute to your obsession. Acts of kindness couldn't go towards a more deserving member. Seeing everyone's generosity just makes me proud to a member here.


I collect rookie cards. Please check my list to see if you have anything I need.

I am looking for Don Mattingly cards that I don't have. Base, Inserts, Patches, maybe GU or Autos.
