Allen and Ginter PacquiaoMany non-sport collectors like Topps’ Allen & Ginter series, even though the series is primarily a baseball release. We even have box breakdown threads in our forums for the 2007 series and the 2009 series. While it might be unusual for non-sport collectors to pursue sports card releases, many collectors like the retro styling, tobacco-card sized inserts, the autographs from folks outside of baseball, and other series components of Allen & Ginter releases.

    My husband and son would really like that Mat Hoffman auto. John McEnroe and Picabo Street, yep I’d like those. Thanks for putting this on my radar.

    A & G is one of the most fun sets out there – you never know what you’ll pull from a pack. Guy Fieri would be a great pull for me. This is one sports set that NS collectors will love.
