Insider Sports Card Hobby Tips 2011 Allen & Ginter Baseball Checklist



Something new for collectors who enjoy Topps Allen & Ginter baseball cards is an exclusive factory set limited to just 999 total sets. Instead of the traditional matted finish of Allen & Ginter cards - these cards from the exclusive factory set will have a glossy finish to make them very unique. In addition to the 350 cards from the 2011 Allen & Ginter base set - Topps is throwing in 10 exclusive brand new rookie cards not found in the original set.  Every card in the set is also serial numbered to /999.
The 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball Glossy Factory set is available online at the ShopTopps website for $99.99. Many of the single cards will be sold online - specifically eBay - as sellers will probably break up many of the sets and sell the cards individually.

2011 Topps Allen & Ginter Eric Hosmer Glossy /999 RC
These should be somewhat desirable cards because they are serial numbered /999 and many collectors will be trying to get the players they are after. $99.99 seems like a fair price if you are looking to sell the cards individually or keep the set complete to hold for future value. The per card price is only about $0.30 cents per card after shipping costs. Sending these cards in to Check Out My Cards or selling them on eBay is perhaps a viable option.

You Get: 350 Card Base Set From 2011 Allen & Ginter

In addition to the 350 card base set from Allen & Ginter - you'll also get 10 exclusive cards that are only available in the high gloss factory set. Several of these cards could be quite hot when these cards go live - specifically the Eric Hosmer and Dustin Ackley. Check the links below to see if anyone has these cards for sale on eBay.

2010-11 Panini Certified HRX Kobe Bryant Autograph Video Card

2010-11 Panini Certified Basketball
Kobe Bryant HRX Video Card


Serial Numbered #/10 - Gold #/1
Found Inside: 2010-11 Panini Certified Basketball

Approx Value: $1,425 - Sold on August 21, 2011


Panini went all out in the design and execution of the HRX Video Trading Cards found inside 2010-11 Totally Certified Basketball and fans of Kobe Bryant are paying huge money to get this stunning card. The Bryant version comes complete with a lengthy video that contains highlights of Kobe's illustrious career and a sit down interview with the Laker star himself. Toward the end of the video they actually show Kobe signing the card and serial numbering each of them himself.  Many other Kobe autograph cards found inside Panini products are also displayed. Ever the business man - Kobe checks an incoming phone call during the video that could have ended up on the blooper reel.

10-11 Totally Certified Basketball released on July 6, 2011 - and so far - this is the only product to contain the HRX Video Trading Cards. The other players who also have an HRX Card are John Wall, Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin. Kobe's version is certainly the most sought after and on August 21, 2011 one sold for $1,425 on eBay.  On Aug. 26 a Blake Griffin version sold for $420.00.  Inside packs of 10-11 Certified Basketball are randomly inserted HRX redemption cards that have to be sent in. The turnaround time was quick as collectors who redeemed in July already had their card by August.
