I'm glad you said "too much baseball". I would buy A&G every year if it wasn't loaded with baseball. Topps hasn't figured out that some people want all the weird cards but not a sport they have no interest in.
Ah well....

Guess they are trying to cover all the bases.
(Pun intended) Twak

Anybody else open some boxes? Sheep

I've looked for retail boxes, nobody here has them. My sportscard dealer had a few hobby boxes, and I bought packs from him but he can't get any more.

The problem with this set is it's so massive, it's almost impossible to get a full set, let alone all the really neat minis.

A freind has bought 3 boxes of hobby, and each box had 3 hits, all baseball jerseys or bats. No rip cards and only one baseball auto. I'd rather get a couple of blaster boxes.

I almost bought a blaster today. . . I've been hearing how tough the autographs are to pull, so I didn't buy any. . . for some reason I'm less interested in this year's set than I have been for the last couple of years. . .

I'd like to pick up a couple of the autos, but some of the prices are crazy high. The card I was most interested in -- Sig Hansen autograph looks to have been pulled from the set. . .

I like A&G, it has some interesting stuff. I always buy a few packs for fun but didn't pull anything worth mentioning this year. I did buy this neat Shawn Johnson framed mini autograph though:

Out of five blasters I have pulled two autos and one bat card...all baseball. Some packs had two minis. In each box the minis average 50% non-sports and 50% basball.

That Shawn Johnson auto really looks good. I like the design of the A & G cards, especially the autos and relics. The design is the same every year, but the frame is a different color.

I'll try again this week for a blaster box.

despite my threat to stay away from this product, I was REALLY depressed the other day, and the wifey took me to Target to buy some cards. I bought all 4 blasters and did quite well.
I pulled one black border mini (Parthenon), 1 unnumbered mini, 4 Greek Gods, 4 Animals, 3 Monsters, 2 Greatest , 1 Wordsmith, 2 Bat relics, and 1 auto...

Holy ****.. The creatures mini are 1:288 hobby packs (don't know the retail odds) guess it was a decent break..

Not sure if I'll buy any more since Strasburg was a huge buying point now he's done for at least a year after blowing out his arm.
