2009 Allen and Ginter Set Is Done!!! Thanks Rod!!!

My 2009 Allen & Ginter set is complete!!! The magic of the internet? Not really. Actually, it was complete and I didn’t even realize it. I have stacks of trades that I am slowly scanning to get them ready to post. On Monday I received a package from Rod, author of the Padrographs blog. It was great stuff, but it was filed away in a team bag on the dining room table on Tuesday morning. I noticed the Aki card, but it didn’t click that it was the card I was waiting for to finish this bad boy off. Last night, Duane from Democratic Roadkill blog pointed out that card #222 was Akinori Iwamura. When I got home, I searched my Aki book, searched my Aki cards in the display and nothing. I was pretty bummed because people have sent me this card. I have the mini of it in all 3 flavors...
So, I guess the set was technically completed on Wednesday when I got the AJ Burnett card from Justin, but I didn’t realize that till today. Lazy Troll, stupid Troll, but a Troll with a complete Allen and Ginter set!!! The funny thing is that I think I have had 5 or 6 copies of this card in my hands the past few months. One went out for a TTM and I think others went out to other set builders. I knew I had the Aki card, I knew I had more than one, so he went into my “tradable dupes” pile. Wow, what a bunch of nonsensicle ramble...Sorry readers, I feel like an idiot, but I’m happy to KNOW that I have a complete set! To celebrate I am scanning both sides of the Aki card! I will probably also have an extra cup of coffee, too. The Troll knows how to party! As a note of interest probably only to me-the back of the Aki card was my 500th scan in the month of October. Woo hoo! Thanks Rod!! Set is done!! Go Angels! Troll out.

  1. Wow, you keep track of SCANS??!!!!

    Congrats on finishing A&G. That's very cool. I'm still 2 cards short. I'll probably get them this weekend at the card show.
