A bit of a baseball batch from Bubba

Got some interesting cards in a recent trade with Bubba's Bangin' Batch of Baseball Bits. Some highlights:
My first 2017 Allen & Ginter. Do they all have shiny backgrounds or is this some kind of parallel? Either way it looks great.
 Speaking of A&G, what does it mean when there are variations with flowery borders? I've seen that in many different years' sets.
 Bowman Platinum is an underrated shiny set.
 The Studio credit card baseball cards are well known, but Skybox did a frequent flyer subset a few years later.
 The backs even feature a fake strip with which to swipe your card.

  1. Nope, the normal base cards are not shiny like the Sanchez. Figured I'd send you something unique. It's a hot box foil. The Gregorius mini is a "black bordered parallel". Glad you like!
