A&G Relic Exchange Update & Contest Results

Less than a month ago I introduced the A&G Relic Exchange to a lot of support. A free contest was held to kick it off, with a lot of worthy entries. I'm pumped to random off the winner, but first, let's see the booty that was added over the last few days. A month ago there was 50 A&G relics in the program, today there are more than 150! 

Here are a boatload of 2012's that I picked up via Ebay:

The next seven came via Judson at My Cardboard Habit. I'm hoping Judson had a helluva weekend on the lake and isn't nursing too bad of a sunburn. 

Rosario has become one of my top unintentional PC guys. He has so many good cards!

I traded out a 2013 Paul O'Neill not to long ago, so I was pumped to restock!

This is now my favorite celebrity relic. I was hoping it would be a piece of his suit (like the 2012 Gumbel) but it appears to be a t-shirt. Still cool!

If any cards look off-center, it's because my scanner likes to autocrop at weird times. The nice thing about mini-relics is that they're pretty universally solid on centering. 


There were 48 entries in the contest - Everyone is eligible to win one prize

Grand Prize: A 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter Blaster Box
2nd Prize: Your choice of any A&G relic from the exchange database
3rd Prize: Same as 2nd prize, but 2nd gets to choose first


2nd Prize: Hackenbush
3rd Prize: Roger

Congrats guys, thanks to everyone who played! If you had your eye on an A&G relic, feel free to email me to set up a trade! 


  1. Wow...too bad I was only eligible to win 1 time! :-)

    Thanks a ton for the contest, and if there are any relics in the blaster that are not Brewers, they are going into your relic pool.

  2. Congrats on a super contest. I'm humbled to be the 3rd place finisher. Anything Cardinals will do (after Tony L & Hackenbush have chosen of course). BTW the Wainwright hasn't arrived yet (as of 6/16) so I guess the USPS got hungry and ate!

  3. Hey, Thanks so much! I'm tempted to take the Mark Cuban but I have to go with John McEnroe. I'll e-mail you my address.
