2009 Topps Allen & Ginter: Mini No Number Parallel Set

 Complete Set: 350 Cards
  • Odds: Hand Numbered To 50

2009 Topps Allen & Ginter loves the Mini Card. The No Numbered card is just another way to get these cards in your hands. Hand Numbered to 50, these cards are not quite as desirable as the Bazooka Red Backs, which are hand serial numbered to 25, but offer up another cool variation.

The Rookie Card (RC) versions of these Mini Parallels would be a great addition to any collection. 2009 has 30 different Baseball RC’s to choose from.

The 2009 Topps Allen & Ginter Hobby Exclusive Silk Cloth Insert set is one of the coolest parts of the entire A&G collection. These Cloth cards are very sought after and offer up one of the great pulls in an ’09 hobby box. It’s hard for me to even think of a better non jersey/auto card out there.

Serial numbered to just 10, this hobby exclusive insert proves to be a very difficult pull. The Milky Way card to the right is really sweet!

These are full sized cards.  They feature a great looking border with the mini silk cloth inside the frame.

Be sure to check out what 2009 Topps Allen & Ginter Cloth cards are selling for on ebay.  Some of the less popular players can be had for a real bargain.

The Rookie Card Cloth’s would be a great card to own of your favorite young prospect.
