2011 Allen & Ginter PREVIEW!

Hey guys, Drew back here! I almost passed out when I saw the first headline on the Beckett Blog just a little while ago, seeing this: "First Look: 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball Cards!" I look forward to Allen & Ginter each and every year and while it probably shouldn't exist anymore because each year is so similar to the past year, I still love the product. Take a look at some of the photos Beckett provided, in case you didn't get to see them already:

Here's a look of the base cards. Definitely did not expect this design to show up, as I've never seen it before. I'll have to see more than just one of my favorite player's base cards before I judge, but I think it looks pretty nice.

Here are a few mini inserts, one looking to be of flowers. Yawn.

A cemetary set? That is depressing!

Here's a preview of the new autographed cards for this product, this year they're sporting a dark blue border with red flowers in the corners. Each year the design maybe changes a little in color, but I seem to like it more and more every year. This looks similar but better than 2009 Allen & Ginter's framed cards, so that could be a plus.

Tennis great John McEnroe also got a card this season!

And we'll finish off with this beauty. Woah.

Thoughts? See Ya!


  1. Ah crap. When I had decided to not pursue this set... 'Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in....'

  2. Are these for real? The relic design is awesome as always but I am honestly not a fan of the base design...

  3. The base cards have quite a bit more going on than usual. They aren't as simple as I like. The relics and autos are awesome. I'll definitely be going after that Pacquio.

  4. I'm not a huge fan of Allan & Ginter. Hate the inserts they provide. The team collector in me keeps getting the Yankees team sets each year though. At least they shanged the base card a little.


I would love to hear what you thought about this post! Please feel free to leave a comment below. Thank you!
