2021 Topps Allen & Ginter Hobby Box Break

The original planned release for these cards was pushed back from a July release into mid August. That’s not a drastic change, but it does put it after the MLB trade deadline. That was one of the things that jumped out, when seeing recently traded players on their old teams. This happens all the time with late summer releases, however, as there’s just not enough lead time to fix them.

This release doesn’t change very much year to year, and even the base design looks very similar. It feels like this year there is less non sport fun included, but that may just be because of the choice of subjects. One thing that stood out as unusual was the collation. Normally, in a hobby box like this, you are unlikely to find duplicates. This time, two of the limited inserts ended up being duplicates. It’s not the end of the world, but it’s surprising to see.

A box contains 24 packs, with 8 cards per pack. It also advertises 3 hits, which can include autographs, relic cards, rip cards, printing plates, and book cards.

This box contained:

126 Base (42% of 300 card set)
12 Base SPs (24% of 50 card SP set)
10 Base Mini Parallels
6 Base Mini Ginter Back Parallels
3 Base Mini Black Border Parallels
4 Arboreal Appreciation
2 Birds of a Feather (Duplicate)
4 Deep Sea Shiver
6 Historical Hits
6 T51 Murad
2 Rallying Back (Duplicate)
2 Far Far Away
2 Mascots in Real Life

1 N43 Boxloader
1 Full Size Relics B Eric Hosmer
1 Full Size Relics B Max Muncy
