The Topps Company is still hitting Home Runs with its popular Allen & Ginter product. A classic late 1800’s card design with a unique card stock, that gives these cards a special feel. The base set will again be one of the few sets collectors still try and build. Just like the old days!
The best place to try and build that set would be to visit your local hobby shop. Also try visiting eBay to get the card you need to fill out your set. Here are some listings on ebay going on right now of some of baseball’s top players.
