Topps Announces Stephen Strasburg’s Allen & Ginter Rookie Card Checklist
Topps has released more details regarding Stephen Strasburg's 2010 Allen & Ginter rookie cards. Contrary to some of the initial speculation by collectors, his base mini (#401) rookie card falls at the same rate as every other base mini card in the product. The difference between Strasburg and the other subjects in the base mini set is that Strasburg's card does not have any parallels (Allen & Ginter Back, Black Bordered, No Number, Bazooka Back, Silk, Wood and Printing Plate) like the others do.
Strasburg's second and only other card in the set is an autograph, which Topps says was inserted on a limited basis. They can be found via redemption and one (along with a copy of every other autograph in 2010 Allen & Ginter) will be given to the person who cracks this year's Ginter Code.
Strasburg's base mini card and autographed card can be found in both hobby and retail boxes of 2010 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball.
