2008 Topps Allen and Ginter

This is part of a $19.99 blaster box break [seven packs plus one extra] from Target - I love these cards, but on a 'budget,' I'll probably be looking for random base cards in bargain bins, common boxes, et al, while busting the occasional pack [if they don't dry up and also remain 'reasonably priced.'].

Pack seven [Six cards listed per pack/six actual]
#223 Roy Oswalt
#38 Andruw Jones
#54 Takashi Saito
#132 Gary Matthews Jr.
- simply a horrible signing by the LA Angels of Anaheim
#40 Justin Upton - mini
#109 Joey Chestnut - U.S. hot dog eating champion; USA! USA! USA!

Pack eight [Six cards listed per pack/seven actual]
#129 Joey Votto
#70 Matt Holliday

#313 Harriet Beecher Stowe - short print / Uncle Tom's Cabin
#108 Alex Romero - mini
#US 5 Chase Utley - California State Flags insert
#16 Hiroki Kuroda

#284 Daisuke Matsuzaka - the much hyped Japanese import is having a stellar sophomore season in the U.S.
