Talking My First Case Break: 2014 Allen & Ginter!

I've never broken a full case of anything before, but this year, I saved up and used some store credit at my LCS to get a full 12-box case of 2014 Allen & Ginter. The boxes started out kind of slow, but got progressively better, and although I never got that gigantic mega-hit this time, I think I'm overall pretty satisfied with the break.

The best part? Out of all 12 boxes, I didn't get a single duplicate mini, relic, or autograph card! Obviously lots of base duplicates and a few duplicate inserts, but otherwise, pretty great collation.

Boxtoppers:
>Brown Border:
- Pedro Martinez
- Mike Trout
- Bryce Harper
- Jacoby Ellsbury
- Chris Davis
- Jose Abreu
>Oversized Base
- Miguel Cabrera
- Roberto Clemente
>Landmarks & Monuments
- Yosemite Falls
- Mount Rushmore
- Jefferson Memorial
- One World Trade Center

Base: still have to collate it and find out how many sets I can make, but I'd estimate being pretty close to two.

Mini base: 129/350, including 22 SPs between 301-350.

Mini A&G Back: 61/350 including 4 SPs.

Mini black-border: 30/350 including 1 SP (Mussina).

Pastime's Pastimes: Complete set of 100.

Fields of Yore: Complete set of 10.

Festivals and Fairs: Complete set of 10.

Air Supremacy: Complete set of 20.

World's Capitals: Complete set of 20.

Natural Wonders: Complete set of 20.

Mini World's Deadliest Predators: 11/21

Mini Where Nature Ends: 16/25

Mini Outlaws, Bandits, and All-Around Ne'er-Do-Wells: 6/10

Mini Little Lions: 9/15

Mini Larger Than Life: 6/10

Mini Into the Unknown: 10/15

Now the more exciting stuff....
Red-Border Minis /33:
- Darryl Strawberry 22/33
- Albert Pujols 12/33
- CC Sabathia 30/33
- Iron Sheik 04/33
- Roberto Clemente 27/33

No-Number NNO Back Minis:
- Felicia Day
- Miss Universe Maria Gabriela Isler
- Koji Uehara
- Bill Rancic
- Jay Bruce
- Polar Vortez ()

Mini Athletic Endeavors SSP:
- Shovel Racing

Mini Urban Fauna SSP:
- Tadarida Brasiliensis (Mexican free-tailed bat)

Red A&G Back /25:
- Billy Williams 22/25
- Didi Gregorius 12/25





Full-Sized Relics:
- Aroldis Chapman (white jersey)
- Adrian Beltre (bat)
- Adam Jones (grey jersey)
- Domonic Brown (white jersey with maroon pinstripe)
- Andrew McCutchen (grey jersey)
- Anthony Rizzo (blue jersey)
- Matt Carpenter (white jersey)
- Jose Fernandez (white jersey)
- Jose Bautista (white jersey)
- Matt Moore (light blue jersey)
- Kyle Seager (bat)
- Bryce Harper (bat)
- Ian Desmond (bat)
- Matt Adams (bat)
- Ryan Braun (black or very dark blue jersey)
- Adam Schefter (3-color fabric piece, lt blue, dark blue, & white)
- Prince Fielder (grey jersey)
- Judah Friedlander (yellow fabric piece)
- Pedro Alvarez (grey jersey)
- Miguel Cabrera (bat)
- Laura Phelps Sweatt (black fabric piece)
- Joey Votto (grey jersey)
- Michael Eisner (crazy multi-colored fabric piece from a tie or something)
- Felicia Day (3-color fabric piece, grey, green, and white)









Framed Relics (I kind of can't believe I didn't get more of these....):
- Buster Posey (red frame, white jersey)
- Matt Moore (red frame, white jersey)
- Carlos Gonzalez (green frame, bat)



Framed Autographs:
- Wilmer Flores (Mets)
- Kevin Clancy (Blogger)
- Didi Gregorius (Diamondbacks)
- Chuck Zito (Actor)
- Mark Roth (Bowler)
- George Springer (Astros)
- Tanner Foust (Race Car Driver) RED INK 03/10





Framed Silk Card:
- Ernie Banks 08/10



Framed Mini Printing Plate:
- Bob Feller Magenta 1/1



Rip Cards:
- Shin Soo Choo 67/75
- Carlos Gonzalez 45/50

Yes, I did decide to rip the rip cards since they were higher numbered. No regrets:
- EXT mini #362 Robinson Cano (Inside Choo)
- Mini RED AUTO 03/10 Will Middlebrooks (Inside Gonzalez)







Also if you were curious, I got 5 Jose Abreu rookie cards and at least one Desmond Jennings full-size base card with no number on the back (probably a red herring for the Ginter Code this year).

While I didn't get a "huge" card from the case, I really enjoyed opening it, and I am happy enough with the results! Some things will be for trade/sale, and some will not. I'm happy to discuss if anyone wants to inquire on certain things. I know I am looking for a Felicia Day auto/red auto, so I would be interested in that for a trade situation.

Thank you for looking!

Thanks, man... all the good hits came out of the last 5 boxes of the case. I was a little scared it was going to be a total bust, then hit the rip with the red auto, the red framed auto, the two red back minis, and the printing plate in succession!
