Here's the N43:
Holy Crap! If this in any indication, my box should be absolutely amazing.
N43 Autograph of Ian Kinsler 12/15. (+30)
Aww, too bad he isn't on the favorite player list! This is a very nice looking card. I love the blue ink and Ian has a legible signature at least. Being hand numbered is also a bonus in my books. The hand on the bottom right reaching for the baseballs is a little odd, though.
Okay, it's 1:15 now, haha. Time to open the next few packs.

(This cards look much better in person, as many of you know. My scanner is on the way out the door, so I'm lucky I at least get an image. The background color on these cards is a light green. You can kinda see it on the Kinsler above)
