I do like the black borders on the relics. A good choice.

Well that looked like fun! A&G is back! Too bad it was only a blaster … And there were no Men in Hats cards. That’s too bad.
Gonna run out to Target and pick up a box or two. I didn’t pre order a hobby, but I think I’ll place an order today … The cards look great…… Except for the Bubbleboy relic…WTF?!?! Thanks for the preview, Chris.

I want the Balloon Boy card.

I thought it was illegal to make money off a crime. The whole balloon boy thing was a crime, they were charged. I hope they didn’t make money from selling the balloon. Any money should have gone to the police for all the wasted resources spent on this crime.

Hello Jeff, my name is Mike Fruitman and I own Mike’s Stadium Sportscards in Aurora, CO. The Heene family auctioned their craft with the procedes going to relief efforts in Japan after the tsunami. After purchasing it, I reached out to Topps in order to have Balloon Boy relic cards in Ginter. The Heenes did not profit from it and instead used it to assist others who needed it.

It has been interesting reading the responses of collectors. It seems most appreciate it adding to the diversity of Ginter. I am just glad to contribute to one of the most popular releases of the year.
