Completed insert set – 2011 Allen & Ginter mini World’s Most Mysterious Figures

16 02 2016

Here’s a fourth mini set from Allen & Ginter that I’ve completed.  This is a catch-up post for a set I actually completed back near the end of 2014.

Set description:  “Furtive characters come out of the shadows on these 10 cards.”

Appropriate for the tone of Allen & Ginter, these mini cards highlight some of the mysterious figures in known history.

Set composition:  10 cards, 1:15 odds (2011 Allen & Ginter)

Hall of Famers:  Not a sports set.

How I put the set together:

  • 3 cards from 2 hobby boxes
  • 3 cards from trades
  • 4 cards from Sportlots

Thoughts on the set:  This is done in the semi-bizarre fashion of so many other Ginter sets, which are always a fun thing to collect.  This set is no different.

Card that completed my set: #WMF9 – Babushka Lady

2011 Ginter Mysterious Babushka Lady

I got this card back in August 2014 from COMC.  The Babushka Lady was a woman in a head scarf seen in recordings of JFK’s assassination.  She is seen with a camera “recording” the screen, but the FBI was never to identify the woman or obtain her photographs.

Best card (my opinion): #WMF7 – The Man in the Iron Mask

The 1998 film by that title, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich, is one of my favorite movies.  This figure was a prisoner in France during the reign of Louis XIV.  He wore a mask at all times, and was usually held in a prison with two doors so no one could hear him.  His actual identity has long been the subject of rumor; Voltaire speculated he was an illegitimate half-brother of King Louis.
