    I think but not 100% sure that it's not Nolan Ryan's auto but the auto of the artist and I just assumed the artist is Asian or something and the inscription is some sort of series of letters or something, IDK.

    There were plenty of good cards that never surfaced, including Thomas.

    I don't know how anyone could NOT rip a single or double rip card. I mean the odds are pretty good that you'll get something much greater than the rip card in mint... not to mention that you cans till keep the rip card after ripping, it is a PC item anyways most likely.

    For the record, I bought an already ripped Albert Belle rip card last year for a few bucks and consider that to be owning the card for checklist purposes

    FYI...the 1/1 sketches are damaged. The white 'texture' is NOT supposed to be there. I emailed Brian Kong ( artist) directly and he confirmed this. He is looking into it with Topps. horrible to see something like this happen.

    This year might be strongest A&G set since I started collecting again (well after the legendary 2006 set came out). My box had a Snoop Lion relic that, sadly, wasn't a blunt wrapper, and an auto of Jenny Dell's cans. I wanted to pull a Bourdain relic or auto (my girlfriend and I watch his shows religiously), but no luck, but picked up the relic for $10 on a BIN.

    I also got a completely blank mini, no printing on front or back. I can't decide if it's a mistake, or a wierd A&G gimmick.
    I'm DelBacon on Sportlots, tons of great cards!

    Might be a huge stretch, but try putting that blank mini under a blacklight to see if something turns up. Maybe it is a codebreaker piece, or something odd. They had the invisible man SSP autos from a couple years ago that had no autograph, but when you put it under a black light there was an autograph on it.

    I think I might concur with the celeb/entertainer auto lineup after finding a list/sample of each one of those. Definitely more appealing to me than I remember from past years.
