I'm not sure what you mean by one female per year. This year at the very least, they have Hope Solo (US women's soccer goalie) auto and costume cards...

Be warned that what this break doesn't show you is that A&G is mainly a baseball product. While I buy a few packs every year, I am aware that most of my pulls are going to be baseball cards that I have little interest in.

Granted there is a lot of baseball to sort through, but there are about 30+ non-baseball folks...about a dozen women among them.
And, a lot of the chase and mini's are rather unique non-sport persons, places, events, and things you will likely not find in your typical non-sport release.

Enjoy!!! Thumb Up

Bought a couple of hobby boxes and 6 loose packs just for fun. I know full well this product isn't something you buy for "big hits" but it does have a lot of variety, and maybe I'd get lucky and pull a Stan Lee auto.

Got a nice assortment of minis, only 2 parallels, 1 black border and 1 A&G back.

5 base parallels.

5 jersey relics- Tim Hudson, Nick Swisher, Hunter Pence, Brian McCann and Mark Reynolds.

1 Bat Relic- Jorge Posada

1 Autograph- Andres Torres

1 Silk Card- Mike Stanton 09/10

1 Rip Card- SHIN-SOO CHOO 11/25







I had no idea about the value of that Choo, I almost ripped it

Non sport pulls:



Minis

Picked up 4 packs with my son. We got a "Horse Hair" hair cut card from the 2009 Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver. So, my first DNA card.
