Free A&G Cards and a Julio Lugo Hit (?)

There are some kind people on the forums sometimes.  It is pretty rare, most people insist on trading by Beckett value, which I find sometimes unrealistic.  I also don't subscribe to any price guides so I do not myself operate that way.  But there are some decent folks out there too.  Just recently I created a thread about my recent A&G blaster which got me one Red Sox card.  I offered to trade anything and everything from the blaster for Red Sox.  I got one response and he offered to send me the following base cards for nothing.  That is very kind.
1.  2013 Topps Allen & Ginter Ted Williams.  I am so happy Williams is getting a lot of cards this year.  What a fantastic hitter.

2.  2013 Topps Allen & Ginter Bobby Doerr.  Doerr has a ton of cards these days.  I am happy with that personally but I think there are some other players that should get cards.

3.  2013 Topps Allen & Ginter Jon Lester.

4.  2013 Topps Allen & Ginter Dustin Pedroia.

5.  2013 Topps Allen & Ginter David Ortiz.

6.  2013 Topps Allen & Ginter Will Middlebrooks.  He is back and hitting right now.  Hopefully he can still become the star he looked like last year.

7.  2013 Topps Allen & Ginter Jim Rice.  Another Hall of Famer, the most recent player to enter the Hall as a Red Sox.

And now the promised Julio Lugo hit:

8.  2008 Topps World Series Commemorative Patch Julio Lugo.  These were made to celebrate the 2007 World Championship.  I only had the Jason Varitek previously.  Lugo never did much for Boston but he will be remembered for being on a World Championship team.
