2012 Allen & Ginter - M L B

24 packs - 8 cards per pack
'Look for any 3 of these in this box - Auto'd cards, Relic cards, printing plates, Rip cards, and Book cards'

I received the following:

126 base cards // 12 SP cards - 126/300 = 42% and 12/50 = 24%
and NO Duplicates --- YES!!!!

Allen & Ginter is again following the pattern of success that has been Allen & Ginter since it's reemergence as a modern card issue. The card design remains consistent with all previous issues. Why fiddle with success?

Allen & Ginter is a great set for the set builder and an excellent set for the master set builder -- both are within reason. I like the way most of the sets now have the SP's grouped together - much easier for the collector and even the pack ripper - to know what they have quickly.

The auto - blue Sharpee - on the card - very well done - THANK YOU!!

IF I received any #ed cards, I did not see them and don't know if there are any in the issue. I have been told that I was fortunate to receive an auto - most boxes that have been ripped here in Orlando have had 3 relics.

Overall grade A - good effort by Topps to again produce a winner.

Go buy several boxes and send the Rays to me!!

Duane - Check the back of your A&G minis, a lot of people are missing the NNO minis (No Number). Limited to only 50 copies each!

Peter - I forgot to ask - shall I fold it to fit a regular envelope or cut it into smaller pieces to fit? Your choice!:eek:

I love the design for the 7th year in a row. Good job Topps! Thanks for the review Duane! I love the "spiderweb" look of the black borders, and the Highlight Sketch cards. I love pretty much everything about this year's product. Oh, and that Jeter box topper looks familiar.. that looks pretty sweet too.

Thanks for the review Duane. I didn't like A&G when it first came out in 2006. I really didn't like the design and the fact they had non sports cards in a baseball set, but I have come to really enjoy it. LMK if you pulled any of these.
