Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in. Available as an online exclusive, 2015 Topps Allen & Ginter assumes another form with the online-only, 10th Anniversary Issue. Known simply as 2015 Topps Allen & Ginter X, the cards are printed on black stock.

The limited product is basically a black parallel of the main A&G release. The most obvious difference is the dark color scheme. In addition to the black card stock, each card features a 10th Anniversary Issue stamp along the side.

Outside of the base set, collectors can find a variety of inserts from the standard A&G set. These do not feature the black stock.

Promising two hits per box, each pack yields seven base cards and one Mini card. Both Autographs and Relics are available, with the signed cards averaging 1:2 boxes. Boxes come with 16 packs and will retail at Topps.com for $69.99.

Although the first official date of sale was 9/9, several of the base cards surfaced a few weeks early on eBay.

  1. Topps just doesn’t give a sh** about collectors or over saturating the market. Another example of cards that could have easily been added into the regular A&G but Topps decides they can screw more money out of collectors buy offering a spin off product. Next we’ll see an A&G super mini product for no reason, just like for Topps Chrome.

    Design wise I love black cards because they make the other features standout especially if they are in gold or silver. But they should have been in regular A&G for the prices people are paying for products now-a-days it’s simply a ripoff to have to buy multiple product boxes to complete sets or master sets.

    Does anyone actually like or agree with the constant product add-ons that should have been in the original products?

  2. It could have been a subset in the initial release with serial numbering. People would have complained about that too however. I’m just not sure if another A&G product was needed. We shall see.

  3. Maybe it’s just a one time thing for the 10th year but here’s what really rocks my boat. According to the article ” several base cards surfaced a few weeks early on EBay” This being an online exclusive and they still can’t make a release actually release on the date that was predetermined? What a joke! I saw these at Target actually today so maybe that’s where those came from. I don’t believe they had the better “hits” in them and I didn’t realize this was what they were until just reading this article. But if that is where they came from why? Make a release actually be a release Topps!

  4. Bennett Scott They were not available at Target from what I have seen, but I would think the black box would make it very obvious if they were. Topps never explained why online-exclusive cards were showing up weeks ahead of time on eBay.

  5. I ordered it. Black cards are always cool. The customer service at Topps is the worst. Do not ever expect them to respond to an email or answer the phone, EVER. It’s time for another company to win the MLB contract for trading cards. MLB would be smart to choose like three or four compainies to promote a little competition in this market. Therefore, forcing the production of a better product.. Where is Upper Deck?

  6. I received my boxes today and opened up the first box and was dissapointed that none of the Full Size or Mini inserts are distinguishable from the original products inserts. They are the same inserts without any stamping. The buybacks got the special “10th Year Anniversary” stamp, but they didn’t doing it to any of the inserts from this year including the relics.

  7. Wish the regular listing had the black border. Sharp set!

  8. It’s only fair to compare this product to the prior release of the Allen and Ginter for this year. It’s obvious in the design of both products that on the boarder the run was made to accompany the tenth anniversary stamping. When I look at both it is strange that players skin appears very spotty, this became more evident in this black version. Packages looked like they held more product until I was surprised when there was a thick layer of Styrofoam filling. The quality is nice but it does not do justice for the price. Insertions including buybacks from last year was a letdown. Topps may just have made out best with keeping the suspension until launch of the products. The phrase curb appealed seems fitting.
