(39) 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter State Relic Complete Set | eBay


*Blowoutcards $5000 Allen & Ginter Bounty Exchange Rules

In order to protect the safety of all people that may attempt to be the
first to offer Blowout Cards a state Relic set for the Bounty of $5000,
and to protect the integrity of the promotion, Blowout Cards will allow
a 30 minute time frame from the point that the National opens to the
general public on Thursday 8/4 at 10 am, in which people may offer their
complete state relic set. During this 30 minute time-frame, all people that offer a
complete set will be considered among the first to offer the set for the
$5000 bounty. Each of these people will have an equal chance to exchange
their set for $5000.

Blowout Cards is only accepting one set for the $5,000 bounty.
Therefore, if multiple people are among the first to offer to exchange
their set for the bounty, each of these people will receive an entry
blank. One entry blank will be randomly selected to decide who will be
offered the $5000 for their set. Each person may only receive one entry
blank.

The only way entry blanks will be utilized for this promotion is if
multiple people show up at the Blowout Cards Booth during the first 30
minutes of the show opening to the general public. After the first 30
minutes of the show being open to the general public it will be on a
first come-first serve basis without the use of entry blanks.

Blowout cards employees are not permitted to participate in this promotion.

You must be at least 18 years old to exchange your set for the $5000 Bounty.
Blowoutcards reserves the rights to alter or change this promotion at any
time.

Really? Even at $100/each (which is high) it would cost $2,900. What am I missing?

At last count, yes. There are a lot that are combined (like New England, Deleware/Maryland/VA/WVA, Tennesse/Kentucky, etc).

Just to clarify, there are probably more than 29 but I think the max possible is around 40.

Multi-state cards:
NC/SC
VA/WV/MD/DE/DC
KY/TN
PA/NJ
MA/ME/VT/NH/RI/CT

SO you have to exchange the set for $5000. So basically one of the BO guys just wants to buy it it seems like. It does say exchange it.

So $80-$100 per (being generous) is ~$3,100-$3,900. You could make a quick grand or so but you run the huge risk of someone else being in front of you in line.

I wouldn't do it unless I was already sitting on a bunch of these.

They all fit together as a map though, right? It'd be fun to put them all together and get it framed and such.

It is a great promotion and creates publicity for the set.

What exactly are these "state relics" anyway? And why are they worth so much?

$60 is basically the average for the "lesser" states, and then $85 for the more popular states. If you'd be the first one to submit it, great way to turn your $2500 into $5000.
