Obligatory Allen & Ginter Post

Unless you've been living under a rock today, you know that 2010 Allen & Ginter singles have hit eBay. Unless you're looking for Jason Heyward, you are probably not going to find an actual picture of a base card for the next day or two.

That's right. There are absolutely no pictures of any 2010 Allen & Ginter White Sox cards. I'm sure that will change in the next few days, but you can still buy the cards, sight unseen. I do appreciate the effort to put singles on eBay this early, but can sellers please stop using the same generic picture for every base card? Once your cards are up, start scanning some actual cards and replace those generic pictures.

As a former seller, I can sympathize with getting the product up as soon as possible. A good chunk of the sales are made when the product is brand spanking new. From my own experience, if there is an actual image of the card you are selling on each page, you can extend that initial sales peak for a while longer. The allure of showing the customer that you actually have the card for sale in your possession translates into even more sales.

Not that I'm complaining, mind you. I'm just anxious to see pictures of the cards I'll be collecting. When the first White Sox related images appear, I'll post them here. Until then, enjoy the picture of a card above from a cool insert set, Sailors of the Seven Seas.
