Default 1 more box of 2013 Allen&Ginter....1 more rip...and something nice inside!

Took a last minute detour to my LCS after work today and found myself with mostly 2013 allen and ginter and 2012 Exquisite FB left on the shelf.
Having got a 1/1 one of a kind from the last case's rip card, I decided to try 1 final box of A&G since the other boxes from that case apparently were very subpar in their breaks.

box was non-eventful until the rip card showed up...

Being a Giants fan, didn't really want to rip so I held it off to the side while I went through 1 box of Exquisite FB. Box was ok, had a RG3 dual auto rookie bookmarks auto so it wasnt too bad.

The rip card was staring at me. Daring me to open. Couple guys at the shop, along with the manager Freddy and Steve-O were there...some friendly encouragement to rip. I told myself, what the heck, I'll rip and keep the Cain rip card, no biggie.

...saw the color of the card....Ranger logo...was thinking "Nolan?".

Not Nolan but was at least as nice...

Props to Freddy, SteveO, and the others guys there for the cool pull! That was fun to pull something nice out of a single rip for once!
Might take it to White Plains to show off and maybe nice trade bait haha

Awesome card! I thought they would be hand-numbered 1/1 though on the back, right?

For some reason, they don't write the 1/1 on the wood mini versions of the EXT mini's.
Thats a really nice pull, congrats!

I am glad we talked you into ripping that card especially how difficult it is as a Giants fan to do so. I say WELL worth it Ed. One and done left and right.
