2011 A&G

24 packs // 8 cards per pack

'Any 3 of these cards in every box - autograph cards / relic cards / printing plates // rip cards // book cards '

I received the following:

111 unique base cards and 3 duplicates

12 SP's -- EXCELLENT -- (my other 2 boxes only received 6 each box!!)

As in other A&G issues, the cards are printed on stiff manilla stock. The design is a bit different this year with the Allen & Ginters banner taking a more prominent spot on the front of the card. One would have trouble picking out the 2011 reverse from any of the other previous year's backs.

INSERTS (Lots!!!)

*********************

2011 Allen & Ginter is again a hit with collectors - especially set builders. I like the SP's grouped together at the tail end of the set and not scattered through out the set. The 'code cards' are kind of strange - at least to me - with designs on the corners of the cards - both in gold and black. I'm sure someone will solve the code - just not me!!

Several folks have been excited about some of the non-baseball additions to the set this year as well - WeeMan, Holtz, Picabo Street, Heather Mitts, Cheryl Burke, and of course - the Prince and Kate!!

No autos in this box, but the autos I have seen are cool - on the card and really look great.

The mini inserts are good chase cards - and the Hometown Heroes is a great insert set to chase - 100 cards.

Overall grade A+ a quality issue.

Go buy several boxes and send the Rays to me...

What are the cards with the little designs? in the corner like the 'Jones' card in your post? I got one of Fowler #189 and don't have a clue.

Thanks, Rich

Rich - those are the 'code cards' - comes in gold and black. I don't have a clue to the code either....

Thanks for your review. I would be interested in any Orioles cards (base/minis) that you have particularly the Jones code card (not that I'm going to try to solve the code). Let me know what you want in trade. Here's a little help finding them:

61 Brian Roberts, 78 Luke Scott, 97 Zach Britton RC, 228 Brandon Snyder (RC), 264 Adam Jones, 269 Derrek Lee, 314 Nick Markakis SP, 317 Brian Matusz SP and 321 Mark Reynolds SP
(No Hometown Heroes or Sketches so don't bother looking for any there. There are 4 Relic cards if you happened to get one of those.)
