2013 Allen & Ginter's Blaster Pack 1

As promised here is pack one of the blaster I bought yesterday:

I love the design on this one.
Topps version of my daily feature "Blow Out the Candles".  Though more inclusive (they didn't have to find all the pictures and videos), it does have a similar mix of sports and pop culture personalities.

Jose is 8-5 and has won his last three starts giving up just four runs in 23 innings.

If you're a big fan of A&G it's probably because of cards like this.  I do watch Man vs. Food on occasion so this one is a winner for me.  Kind of wish they had used a food related image though.

I don't know what to say about Ian.

Joey Bats is staring you down.  I do approve of the Blue Jays uniform change.  I never liked the angry Jay version.

Pretty good one for my first mini.  Maddux and Glavine HOF next year.  Will Smoltz be in the Class of 2015?
Overall I like this year's design. The framing is subtle and the images are allowed to fill the card.  This pack delivered with a good mix current players, a fun non-sports subject and a legend mini.  

Stay tuned for pack 2!
