2013 Allen & Ginter Yasiel Puig Mini, Clayton Kershaw Rip Card and more

Yesterday was the opening day of 2013 Allen & Ginter so I decided to stop by my local hobby store on the way home from work.  I picked up two hobby boxes at Triple Cards in Plano, TX and joined the rip party.  Two packs in I found an A&G back Yasiel Puig mini.  I decided to roll the dice and list it immediately as a one day listing.  Sometimes these hot rookies drop dramatically in price after a week or two, sometimes they don't:

In the same box I also pulled the full size Yasiel Puig card:

And a little later in that box I pulled one of the coveted rip cards.  A Clayton Kershaw numbered out of 25.  I've never had much luck with Rip Cards that I've decided to open, so I am playing it safe and listing it unripped.  That should cover a decent amount of one of the boxes.

I'll post more about my two box break later today, but overall I am happy with this year's version of A&G, and it's always fun to hang out at a good 'ole sports card store and rip with other collectors.

As a Dodger fan, I am insanely jealous.

Night Owl,

I did seem to have a Dodgers streak going for some reason.
