A horse in the race

We start the last pack with a horse. Yup - A&G baseball cards at their quirky best, The Berber is a horse from back a thousand years. A nice full background for the size of the mini.

Further A&G-ness with this one circa 1939  New York. I don't know what is more shocking, the 40 cents per ride price, or that many times people ended up stuck/suspended for hours when it malfunctioned. That is better than the consequence of falling though I guess.

We end with base cards, including *shudder* a Jonas brother...

7 Packs, 42 cards, 140 points.

Not too shabby overall when we look at where it sits, coming in fifth so far. We shall see how that stacks up in the end.

That does bring an end to the Dave and Adam purchases from what is now almost a year ago. That did well, and I had fun - not bad for about $250 CDN all in, I'd say. Not sure if I'll be making the trip again this year as we are looking at Disney later this year, but if not this year, maybe in 2020. Time will tell.

  1. Topps included a Jonas brother? A&G is known for having celebrities and entertainers... but gotta admit that's seems like a weird pick. I wonder how many baseball card collectors are fans of him.

    1. You would think it is a small minority of crossover fan base between Jonas and baseball.
