2016 Topps Allen Ginter Hobby Box Break

One of my favorite releases of the year returns with more of the same.  For me, Allen & Ginter almost isn’t a baseball card set, as much as an everything set.  Sure, the set’s primary focus has always been baseball, but you also get an assortment of various other champions and unique insert sets.  You can even find from movie characters this time.

It seems to me there is less flair this year than normal, however, for some reason.  Maybe I’ve grown accustomed to more inserts or variety, but it feels a little lacking in this installment.

The boxes advertise 24 packs of 8 cards, with 3 hits per box. Those hits are primarily full sized cards with relics, but also include framed mini relics, printing plates, and framed mini autographs.

This box contained:

128 Base (42.7% of 300)
12 Base SP (24% of 50)
13 Mini
3 A&G Mini
3 Black Mini
2 Ferocious Felines
2 U.S. Mayors
1 Subways & Streetcars
12 The Numbers Game
5 Baseball Legends
5 Natural Wonders
1 Full Size Relic A Jose Abreu (Bat)
1 Full Size Relic B Mike Greenberg
1 Mini Relic Adam Wainwright
