Allen and Ginter wood mini cards, I assumed they were made out of wood. Little wood chips the size of a regular mini with the picture on front. I don’t even think I thought there was a back to the cards.
I saw a Kevin Kouzmanoff for sale right before I went on vacation last week. I sniped that sucker and made sure I won it. I received the card the day before I left for vacation.
I tore into it quickly all the while thinking, how cool this wood chip card is going to be.
But it’s not wood. Since I have never seen one of these cards in person before, I really had no idea these cards weren’t really wood. It’s just cardboard - not that there is a problem with cardboard.
This card is just a regular mini from Allen and Ginter with a wood-tint finish on the front. They could really make the front any hue they want this way, but they chose wood and for years I went on thinking these were actual wood cards.
I’m not disappointed that I own another Kouz 1/1, but I was definitely disappointed to learn that this wasn’t real wood. … There are so many jokes I could make here, but I am just going to end this post in saying, yes, I like wood.
