2017 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball

This should be a nice little box to go through. This is the very last of the boxes I picked up at Dave & Adam's last year, so finishing this box will knock off one of my goals for this year - the easiest of them.

So glad they include an extra pack because that allows be to take one off the top for the unopened pack collection...

With absolutely no cards from this set, will be nice to see some added here. As for a reminder of the scoring...

Base card - 1 point (yes, all cards get a point)
Base card need - 2 points
Base variation card - 20 points
Base card Toronto card - 5 points
Base variation Toronto card - 50 points
Insert Card bonus - points based on odds - if 1 in 4 - worth 4 points, double if a Toronto card

With no further ado...pack number one...

No short prints in the base cards from this pack - the base set is 350 cards with the last 50 being short print. That aside, some pretty nice base cards including a sweet Ernie Banks.

This Upton is a mini A&G backed card. I like the mini cards, except for the storage issue because of their being, well mini.

We end with a staple of A&G - a fish insert. Mmmm....Salmon....

1 Pack, 6 cards, 18 points.


  1. Not sure about that pack. We'll see what is next.

  2. Which one is the extra pack? C'mon Topps, just stop with that....

    1. I am waiting for them to try a box that comes with 2 packs plus 10 bonus or something crazy like that. It's not like they sell the boxes with only 7 packs and this one happens to have an extra.

  3. Fishing lure insert? Lol. Interesting.
