2006 Topps Allen & Ginter

From BaseballCardPedia.com
Jump to: navigation, search


2006 Topps Allen & Ginter is a 350-card set released July 26th, 2006. Considered by many to possibly be the best baseball product of 2006, and winner of Beckett Baseball's Product of the Year for 2006, packs of Topps' first Allen & Ginter set were gobbled up by collectors shortly after release. Prices soared above Topps' suggested retail price as the hits just kept coming. Part of the appeal of Allen & Ginter, was a strong lineup of major league players joined by superstar athletes from other sports -- all in keeping with the spirit of the original Allen & Ginter sets.

The autographs, parallels, and game-used inserts were all outstanding, but the real prize were the controversial Rip cards. The Rip cards, which contained another miniature-sized card embedded inside the main card, were seeded at the rate of one-per-case. In order to get the mini-card, collectors had to "Rip" open (thereby destroying) the Rip card. Inside the rip cards would be either an autographed mini, a special limited mini, a unique Dick Perez sketch or an original 1887 Allen and Ginter N28 card.

As of January 2008, hobby boxes are available for $180-$225.


24 packs per box, 7 cards per pack

Each waxbox should yield two of the following (on average): Framed Autographs, Framed Relics, Printing Plates, and/or Allen & Ginter Original cards. Each case will include an exclusive Rip Card which may contain a repurchased Allen & Ginter card.

Each Hobby Box is packed with an exclusive Box Loader which would yield either: an N-43, N-43 Relic, N-43 Autograph, Postcard, or personalized Autographed Postcard.

All 350 base cards are available in the following mini-sized parallels. All cards measure 1-7/16" X 2-5/8"

  • Minis
  • A&G Backs
  • Black Bordered
  • No Number on Back (limited to 50 copies)
  • Bazooka Backs (serial numbered to 25 copies)
  • Mini Wood (one-of-one)

NOTE: The 50 short-printed base cards are also SPed in the Mini, Mini A&G Back, and Mini Black Border parallels.


Inserted into Rip cards in 2006 Allen and Ginter, these mini cards are an additional 25 mini cards toward the base set. The cards feature additional pictures that are different from the base set for each player, and are printed on gray cardstock. Ryan and Clemens are depicted on different teams than their standard base card.

Dick Perez Sketch Cards

The Dick Perez Sketch cards were inserted at a rate of nearly one per pack and were printed on a thicker gauge of cardstock -- essentially making them an anti-packsearching decoy. Perez had a long history of drawing ballplayer portraits for card manufacturers, dating back to the early 1980's in Donruss. Unfortunately, Topps commissioned his drawings as sketch cards (2 1/2" X 3 1/2") -- way to be too small and fine -- thus losing much of the majesty and detail of the Donruss Diamond Kings.

As with the old Diamond King issues in 1990's Donruss, one player from each team is featured on a card, thus a 30 card set.

Original Sketches

Embedded into Rip Cards (see below), these are the original sketches drawn by Dick Perez that were used for the regular insert. Each one is completely unique and serial-numbered as a one-of-one.

Rip Cards

Kenji-Johjima.jpg?id=7cca91b0-b67f-4012-b890-47440a7f8678&size=original&side=front&.jpg Kenji-Johjima.jpg?id=7cca91b0-b67f-4012-b890-47440a7f8678&size=original&side=back&.jpg

Although not entirely a new concept (see 1998 Zenith) 2006 Allen & Ginter saw the introduction of the Rip cards. The cards were designed to be torn open and had a second mini card embedded inside. The mini card would either be an autographed mini, a limited gray back mini, an original Dick Perez sketch (1/1) or an original buy-back Allen and Ginter card from 1887.

The cards were seeded at approximately 1 per hobby case or 1:265 packs. There were 50 total rip cards with print runs varying from 10 - 99. A checklist with the print runs is shown below. Unripped cards carry a much higher premium, if you can even find one at all.

When Allen and Ginter was first released the demand for these cards was sky-high. Thus the price on these cards was significantly higher than other sets that had similarly serial numbered cards.

Although rarely seen on the secondary market anymore, these cards still demand a high premium. A ripped copy of #RIP2 Dontrelle Willis (#7/10) sold on EBay in January 2008 for $55. A ripped copy of #RIP35 Albert Pujols (8/99) was sold on EBay in Jan, 2008 for $10.

As a tribute to the orginal Allen and Ginter sets, a special group of cards were inserted as box toppers. The cards' dimension are the same measurements as the original 1888 Allen and Ginter N43 cards and are modeled in the same style. Each hobby box had either an N43 or a Postcard card inserted as a box topper.

Two different types of cards were inserted into the hobby boxes of 2006 Allen and Ginter as a box topper. Each box would contain either a postcard box topper or a N43 box topper. The post cards measure approximately the same dimensions as a standard US postal service post card. The card fronts feature a black and white picture from a location that would be associated with the player. The card back feature a short message from the player and a facsimile signature. The "stamp" of the post card features a small portrait picture of the player.

Inserted at varying rates based on different grouping, 50 relic cards were also inserted into the Allen and Ginter packs. Included along with the baseball game used relics were two cards featuring a necktie worn by George W. Bush and a sweater worn by John F. Kennedy. Both of these cards are extremely rare. However, it should be noted that the Mantle jersey relic is no more rare than the Huston Street or Travis Hafner cards.

The specific odds of finding a Framed Relic are as follows.

Personalized Postcards

Two different types of cards were inserted into the hobby boxes of 2006 Allen and Ginter as a box topper. Each box would contain either a postcard box topper or a N43 box topper. The post cards measure approximately the same dimensions as a standard US postal service post card. The card fronts feature a black and white picture from a location that would be associated with the player. The card backs feature a short message from the player, hand written by the player with a signature. The "stamp" of the post card features a small portrait picture of the player.

The Mickey Mantle card is signed by his son David.

The odds of pulling a personalized postcard was 1:3000 hobby boxes. Each personalized postcard is a unique 1/1. The Gary Carter appeared on Ebay in January 2007 and sold for $320. The David Wright was reportedly sold for $1325 in 2006 (Source - Beckett Baseball, Oct. 2006, Issue #259)
