Topps Allen & Ginter

It’s here – the latest Allen & Ginter offering from Topps. Joinging the box break of this fine product is SCD editor T.S. O’Connell, a big fan of the vintage-style cards. Let’s get down and dirty:

Today’s Feature: Topps Allen & Ginter

  • 8 cards/pack
  • 24 packs/box ($75)

There’s a lot going on with this set, from autograph and relic cards to N43 box toppers and more insert cards that you can imagine – Minis, World Leaders, Dick Perez Originals, etc.

We busted open a box with plenty of good material, at least in the variety of content. There’s too much to break down by insert/specialty, so we’ll just showcase the relic cards, black borders and let the video do the rest of the explaining,

Relic cards

  • Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini (boxing glove)
  • Troy Tuluwitzki (jersey)
  • Michael Young (jersey)
  • Prince Fielder (bat)

Black Border Minis

  • Jeff Francis
  • Hanley Ramirez
  • Michael Young

And now to the video:

    Fantastic! Thanks for the fast help and the great job you guys are doing. Keep up the good work and keep helping the hobby survive. Little things like this make it enjoyable to visit the site and always make me want to continue to come back .Thanks again,Brett

  4. brett 75 on said:

    Harris you should know the answer to that question .Depends on who you know….At least at that price you get 24 packs unlike the UD Goudey which is now a box of 18 compared to last years 24 pack box for the same price.What happened to the 6 other packs to big to fit in the box? Brett
