2009 Allen & Ginter Blaster Boxes

Well, I am still waiting for my cases to arrive, so I broke down and picked up a few blaster boxes of 2009 Allen & Ginter from Target. Here are a few highlights (there weren't a lot).

This Beltran No Number mini was the only semi-big hit. Love watching Beltran play, especially when he was with KC.

National Heroes George Washington. Cool card, but now whenever I think of George Washington, I can't help but recall Slater's rant on Martha Washington and her "cash crop" in the classic film Dazed and Confused.

My favorite current player, both for his brilliant pitching and quirky media quotes. Wish it was centered a little better.
