2009 Topps Allen & Ginter Sell Sheets are Live!!!

The sell sheets for the product that EVERYBODY is waiting for are now live. Please take a look and see what is in store for the 2009 edition of Topps' Allen & Ginter set:








The preliminary checklist breakdown includes:

  • 350 card set, 50 short prints,
  • 263 (for some reason, card #'s 24 and 228 are not even listed) veterans,
  • 36 "Rookie Card Logo" players (31 TBD's)
  • 25 Historic figures/landmarks including Samuel Morse, Louis Braille, the Alamo, and the Electron)
  • 24 Champions (Michael Phelps, Dominique Wilkins, and Jason Wong)
Who's Jason Wong? He's just the guy that cracked the Allen & Ginter code from last year, winning himself a spot on the 350 card checklist!!!

Mini inserts this year include two-20 card sets. Creatures of Legend, Myth & Terror include the Loch Ness Monster, the Yeti, Cyclops, and other monsters of yore. The other, World’s Biggest Hoaxes, Hoodwinks, & Bamboozles, include con men like Charles Ponzi and Bernie Maddoff, and hoaxes like Spaghetti Trees and Cold Fusion. (Topps probably couldn't get a certain rival card company executive to agree to appear in this set...)

Product information can be found here. As always, the checklist is subject to change.

Sincerely,

JayBee Anama

I have to think of something appropriate for the Bernie Madoff card when/if I get it.

Something symbolic and as destructive as he was.

Unless I missed something on the initial checklist, I'm wondering why Mantle, Ruth, Robinson, Gehrig, etc. are not included in the base set? Mantle has been in the base set before and I thought for sure with the CMG agreement, they would include Ruth, etc. I guess they still could be as there are several cards "TBD" just thought Topps would include and hype the CMG players as part of the set.

On a side note, it will be interesting to see what the Invisible Man card looks like. :)
