First Cards

I finally had to do some shopping on my way home from work yesterday, and as luck would have it, I had to drive right past a place that I knew had some baseball cards. Since I started this blog last month, I've mentioned a few times that I was going to start on my card collection, I finally did.

I bought two packs of 2008 Allen & Ginter's, and a handful of Topps Opening Day 2010. I haven't opened the Opening Day cards yet, but wow those Allen & Ginter's cards are gorgeous! The look, the feel, just the sheer enjoyment of opening those packs was great. I have a terrible feeling that my "Want List" is going to continue to grow and I may have a hard time just collecting Royals and fantasy team cards. Being a completist, I'm already positive that I'm gonna have to chase down more of these Allen & Ginter's cards, they are beautiful little pieces of cardboard art. I only wish they were a little less expensive.

Without further adieu, here are the cards I opened last night:
