First Allen and Ginter Pack of the Year

Finally broke down and bought a blaster box of 2010 Allen & Ginter. Here is the first pack.

Mark Teahen...most might consider this to be not to great of a start. But I always liked Teahen when he was with the Royals, and even though he is with a division rival now, I still like him.

Esmil Rogers rookie. Honestly not familiar with him, but all rookie cards are worth hanging on to for at least a few years.

The boy king, one of the most famous leaders in history.

2010 Allen and Ginter King Tut
Felipe Lopez. OK.

This Day in History Stephen Drew/The Battle of Iwo Jima. Stephen was born on March 16th, 1983 (OK that makes me feel old) and the Battle of Iwo Jima ended on March 16, 1945 (before my time, but have seen it on WWII documenteries on TV). I think I might like this insert set.

Lords of Olympus Persephone. I'm a little rusty on my Greek mythology so I had to read the back of the card to find out that she is the Goddess of the Underworld, son of Zeus and daughter of Zeus's sister Demeter (no comment). She was abducted by Hades and later rescued by Hermes.
