The Cardboard Junkie 2009 Allen & Ginter Freakout has officially begun

IT'S HEEEEEERE. Live. Available to the public. You can't pre-sell a one of one, 2009 Allen & Ginter is open for business. Mario with the scoop as always. I can now officially go Allen & Ginter Crazy.

AND I SHALL

I finally got up the courage to watch the Beckett break. For all you conspiracy theorists out there, I'll have you know they only pull four of the ten possible 1/1 cut autos instead of the seven they usually are allotted. You can watch the break here if you wish (the cards pulled are actually pretty interesting), but I'm not responsible for personal items broken in a fit of rage or any cardiac-related medical conditions suffered by my more excitable readers out there. I was able to get through the break with only mild nausea caused by Chris Olds' reciting of the autograph list. Michael Phelps, Michael Phelps, Michael Phelps, Michael Phelps, Michael Phelps, Michael Phelps, Michael Phelps, Michael Phelps. MEH.

In other news, The Case Breakers are hard at work and posting on eBay. Well, there's at least a few of boxes worth of inserts up there. Since I am sadly not likely to have the time or the resources to build all the insert sets this year I will instead do what I did with the Heritage SPs and download the images off of eBay instead. No I'm not kidding, in March I did an eBay search for "2009 Heritage SP" and downloaded the best image I could find of each short printed card. There's always a way to be a collector even in the toughest of times. Expect non-stop Ginter for the next couple of weeks folks, we're off on a crazy ride...
