If I know one thing as a player collector, it’s that I rarely ever pull the card I want. As a result, I usually just buy the Burrell cards to save a little money on sets I don’t want to collect. Here’s the Burrell base card from 2009 SP Legendary Cuts, which is a good looking set but very expensive, given the large number of cut autos inserted into the set.
2009 SP Legendary Cuts #75
Sometimes, I want to collect a set, but the Burrell card is just too tough to pull and I always want two copies. That’s the case here, with Pat’s 2009 Allen & Ginter base SP card. I found a seller with 2 copies for $1, as well as the Legendary Cuts card above, and I just jumped all over it. Of course, now I will pull a Burrell SP in every box of 2009 A&G that I buy.
These three cards bring my total Burrell collection up to 955 unique cards. The Legendary Cuts base card lets me put that set to bed and the Allen & Ginter gives me a good start on all of the parallels from that set. Look for more Allen & Ginter parallels in the coming weeks.
