2010 Allen & Ginter Blaster Box Crack

I couldn't resist buying the last blaster box of 2010 Allen & Ginter's from the shelves of the local Wal-Mart.  This is just a little tease for me with the 2011 version being released very soon. 


Rookies

Luis Durango (OF) has struggled mightily this season at Triple-A.  The Panamanian speedster was designated for assignment by the Padres on July 21, 2011.

Sergio Santos (P) was originally drafted by the Diamondbacks as a shortstop out of high school in 2002.  After signing with the White Sox in 2009, Santos was converted to a pitcher and is now serving as the White Sox's closer.  He has 14 saves so far in 2011.

Chris Johnson (3B) enjoyed a solid 2010 rookie campaign while batting .308 with 11 homers.  However, he has struggled so far in 2011 just like the rest of the Astros lineup.

Mike Leake (P) got off to a fast start as a rookie in 2010 going 5-0 in his first 11 starts but his effectiveness waned due to shoulder fatigue later in the season.  So far in 2011, Leake is 6-4 with a 4.19 ERA.

Chris Pettit (OF) is still waiting to receive any kind of meaningful MLB play time.  He only appeared in 10 games for the Angels in 2009 and only 1 game in 2011.  Pettit is currently trying to work his way back from an injury that forced him to miss the entire 2010 season.


Short Prints

Picked up this McLouth for my Braves PC.


Minis
Picked up a Delmon Young black bordered mini and his A&G back mini.  The LaRoche is also an A&G back mini while the Beltre is just the normal mini.  I've never typed the word "mini" so may times in the span of three sentences.


Inserts

Got one of these in each pack and I gotta say that I really don't like the look of these cards.  These cards just bore me for some reason.  Heck, even the newsboy on right looks bored out of his mind.


This is a Baseball Highlights insert of the Mets' Daniel Murphy.  He looks like a kid trying to chase down the ice cream truck in this picture.


And for the finale, some of the non-sports minis
