Product Details

Reaching beyond the standard card world of MLB stars, 2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball offers champions across multiple athletic pursuits and various subjects from popular culture.

Each Hobby box includes three hits that can be autograph cards, cut signatures, relics, book cards, original buybacks, or rip cards.

The diverse 2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball lineup highlights baseball players and a whole lot more. The first 300 cards are standard base options with the final 50 cards in the overall 350-card set being short prints. These are for subjects not issued in the main base set.

2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball Inserts

As is the case every year, the insert sets are split between full-size and minis.

Moving beyond baseball is Down on the Farm for the animals, equipment and tools found on...yup, a farm. Digging Deep focuses on treasures in the ground, including valuable gems and metals. Moving the search a bit higher, the panoramic Reach for the Sky! forms images of the most famous skyscrapers.

The mini sets largely provide non-baseball coverage. This includes Booming Cities Minis for areas with a notable population increase, Buggin' Out! Minis for insects, Citadels and Safeholds Minis for historic fortresses of the past, Safari Sights Minis for key elements of Africa, and Where Monsters Live Minis for the best places to find scary creatures. Retail-only Behemoths Beneath is for the giants of the sea.

2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball Autographs

As many collectors know, a crucial part of A&G is the non-baseball autograph lineup. Within the 2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball checklist, the on-card Allen & Ginter Framed Mini Autographs breakdown includes top names from many fields. Rare editions come via the Black Framed (#/25) and Hobby-exclusive Red Ink cards.

Also, the one-of-one Cut Signatures line features notable subjects from history and pop culture.

2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball Relics

Falling under the memorabilia designation, the 2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball relics are not your typical MLB offering. In addition to Full-Size Relics and Mini Framed Relics for select base subjects, the possibilities include items of historical significance.

2020 Topps Allen Ginter Baseball Cards Have Ball Will Travel Token Relic Soto

Exclusive to Hobby, keep an eye out for the new Allen & Ginter Pin Relics (#/25 or less). These cards display "iconic pins from historic elections and events." The "Have Ball, Will Travel" Token Relics (#/5) set contains actual tokens from the city where the MLB superstar in question plays ball.

Other Hobby-only choices consist of Allen & Ginter DNA Relics with real fossil pieces and 100 Allen & Ginter Framed Originals Buybacks (1/1).

The Digging Deep insert mentioned above adds a Relic edition (#/10 or less) with pieces of the rare item, as well.

2020 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball Rip Cards

Averaging two per Hobby case, Rip cards present another run of cardboard excitement. For those not familiar with the A&G phenomenon, the serial numbered Rip cards—with 100 options in total—showcase a player on the outside and a mystery mini card on the inside. As the name indicates, this interior card can only be accessed by ripping open the exterior cover. Dual Rip cards, featuring 50 combos, are exclusive to Hobby and picture one player on each side. These cards house two minis.

As always, "to rip or not to rip" is the million-dollar question. Those taking the plunge can find Mini Exclusives cards, which are an extension of the base set, going from #351 to #400. There are also Mini Metal Exclusives (#/3), Mini Wood Exclusives (1/1) and hand-drawn Artist Originals (1/1)

Hard-signed box loader versions include Allen & Ginter Boxloader Autographs (#/15 or less) and Allen & Ginter N43 Boxloader Autographs (#/15 or less).
