Melvin Mora, 2000 Upper Deck SP Authentic #172
Though I've always had an appreciation for the 19th-Century style and florid quirkiness of Topps' Allen and Ginter cards, I never have mustered up the nerve and the cash to jump headlong into an attempt at collecting the set. Instead, I buy a pack or a blaster now and again and wait for the Orioles to trickle in through trades. So I have a bunch of Melvin Mora A&Gs but little else.
However, I'm always on the hunt for freebies. I just entered a contest at Coolio Cards for a chance to win a hobby box of 2010 Allen and Ginter. Will I win? Probably not. But it's worth a shot.
