Default 2011 Allen Ginter

Anyone know if this is coming out this year? Last year, the auto checklist came out during spring training and I havent even seen a blip of the product this year. Anyone have any info?

Here is the link...

YouTube - Topps Gypsy Queen

Topps is still making Allen&Ginter, they cut out T-206 and Chicle.

A and G is too big to cut out. Seems like they aren't putting out as much early-season info like they did last year. Maybe Topps is trying to cut out the constant delays by just not announcing anything.

They are cutting some lines and doubling up production on others. I read someowhere that A&G *will* be produced.

Dude, it looks AWESOME. I love Ginter. Bad move releasing this sneak peak before Gypsy Queen, IMO. Everyone will be gunning for this instead.

I might have to find some money to buy a box or two, especially with Mauer's auto being in it

Nice, they did good to bring back a better set of "Champions". Pacquaio. Not much to say there as I'm sure he will outsell anyone else on the checklist. After not including any boxers the last few years I'm glad to see their re-inclusion in this set considering how they were represented in the first 3 Ginters. Actually look forward to this release after skipping last years.

That Manny is going to be huge! I can almost guarantee that if he has red autos, those rip cards are going to sell crazy high.

Epic! Uninvited guests I like it.

Stan Lee..awesomeness!

Looks very good. I'm in for a few boxes and then tons of singles for me.

Looks like I am going to have to buy a few boxes. I love the new borders and the cards look beautiful as always. The flower cards say "plant and watch it grow", I wonder if there are seeds in them? odd, but interesting. Always love this set and with the new auto inclusions (Rudy, Gammons, etc.) I will have to pick some up. Thanks for sharing!

plant cards are supposed to really grow in a garden, there are supposed to be several varieties.

The cards look much nicer than the previous few years, and the mini sets are pretty creative... especially uninvited guests.

The Armando Gallaraga boxtopper looks sweet. I will definitely be picking one of those up
