    Attention attention all 15 topps a/g base set builders

    There are NO SP'S in the base set SP's are only in the mini sets

    Thought everyone would like to know

    ...And to add there are no retired players in the product so no Jeter Koufax Ripken or Ryan or any other Hall of Famer

    When we trade I go the extra step for a fellow collector. I send out the best packaging. I use sleeve covers, sandwich between cardboard protectors tight yet firm fit. Use of bubble wrap mailer often with delivery confirmation. I do not send damaged cards. I require the same respect. I understand trader ratings isnít required I urge you to make the effort to give those ratings.

    Beckett is showing base 301-350 as short prints same as usual. With any luck, I will sort my 2 boxes tonight to get a feel for it.

    Thanks,

    This is from Baseballcardpedia.com

    http://baseballcardpedia.nfshost.com...%26_Ginter%27s

    "NOTE: The last 50 cards in the (full-sized) base set are NOT short-printed; however, their corresponding Mini parallels are. We have put the "SP" flag on these cards for your checklisting convenience."

    But yet this is from Sportscollectors Daily:

    http://www.sportscollectorsdaily.com...inter-preview/

    "The base set will include 350 baseball veterans and rookies as well as public figures and the usual non-sport type features. Fifty of those cards will be single-printed and fall one in every two packs."

    And Beckett.com is listing 301-350 as SPs.

    Hmmm.....

    I opened 1 box and 2 blasters and have 33 cards from 301-350

    Your honor would like to submit into evidence

    COPY AND PASTED FROM BASEBALLCARDPEDIA.COM
    2015 Topps Allen & Ginter's is a 350-card set, scheduled for release the week of July 22nd. This is billed as the "Tenth Anniversary" of the popular product, although this is not accurate. While 2015 is the tenth "TANG" set, Allen & Ginter's tenth anniversary will be in 2016 -- ten years after the release of 2006 Topps Allen & Ginter's. Nonetheless, there are a number of Tenth Anniversary commemorations in the 2015 edition. As usual, each 24-pack Hobby box will include three of the following: Autographs, Relics, Rip Cards, or A&G Originals.
    The set is notable for having the first certified autographs of Ichiro in a Topps product -- not to mention the first Ichiro Topps cards of any kind since 2012. The product will also include autographs of the cast of the Rocky films, signed in character, as well as autographs of selected 2015 NBA draft picks. Also, for the first time all 350 base cards were printed in equal quantities; however, the corresponding Mini parallels will have SPs .

    Base Short Prints Set Checklist 50 cards. The full-size SP cards appear to be as common as the base cards this year. Cards #301-350 are still short prints for the mini parallel.

    If this is accurate, and I hope to find out tonight if it is, then I will be very happy. I am getting tired of chasing SPs in all these sets.

    2 boxes almost sorted. 39 cards in 48 packs from 300 to 350 so I would say these are not short printed in the base set. That works for me. When I get to it I will be trading minis, inserts etc for base cards to finish my base set. I have no interest in keeping the minis around.

    Thanks,

    The biggest issue I have now is that with 2 boxes and 384 cards or so I should have enough for a set or at least be very close. I can tell you that I am not close. Not sure how far off yet but it is less than half but more than a quarter to go for sure.

    Thanks,

    I opened two boxes and feel like they were the same box. Which is pretty much a repeat of last years break for me.
