Topps has released a preview of 2011 Allen and Ginter. Beckett has it here.

At first glance I am torn. It is very 2009 Upper Deck to me. I am sure I will end up collecting it, if not for the regular set than for the minis and weirdness that comes out of every box.

But man, I don't know. Oh well. In a few months I will be able to see them in person and decide.


  1. Agreed on the look, a lot busier than normal. Won't stop me from collecting the minis though!

  2. You're right, it does have that 2009 UD vibe going on. I still like the base design and I too will probably end up buying handful of packs...assuming the budget allows (the release is right around the birth of my 2nd daughter)

  3. When do they stop calling it Allen & Ginter because it bears no relationship to the original set? I don't mind this design or anything, just curious how long they can pretend that's what this is. -Andy
