Is Topps Allen and Ginter The Most Hyped Product Ever?

For the last 2-3 years the Topps Allen & Ginter Product has been one of the most popular products ever.  The cards look nice plus you get the chance to pull out a cut signature of a historical person or maybe pull an original 1887 Allen & Ginter card.  My question for you is this:  Is Topps Allen & Ginter the most hyped product ever?  In my opinion, yes it is.  I can understand how many people like to put sets together but it just seems to me that this product is missing something.  Personally I think there are too many base cards and not enough hits.  There is suppose to be two hits per box out of the 24 packs.  You need a lot of luck with this product to pull something nice.  Usually what you will pull is two plain white jersey cards of two semi good players.  I know I have been going on and on about not being such a big fan of this product but the rip cards and the DNA cards are pretty cool.  I still would like a unripped card for my collection.  What do you think?

  1. TA&G is not about “pulling hits.” It’s a set collector’s set.

    Personally, I think they should make the base set even larger (400-500 cards) and reduce the number of “hits” to one-per-box.

  2. I never really found interest in Allen and Ginter, but I see its value. It is basically a set collector’s dream and in the process of the break, you have the chance to pull a really nice card in the autos/dna/ripcards.
