Thanks to the full 2017 Topps Allen and Ginter Baseball checklist, we have information about all the signers to be found in the product, which releases on July 19.
Among the most notable options, legendary modern boxer Floyd Mayweather is part of the set as both a base card subject and signer. Although nearing the end of his career, the undefeated boxer (49-0) remains in the headlines based on his push for a 50-0 record, as well as for his bout with MMA star Conor McGregor.
Other key 2017 Topps Allen and Ginter non-baseball signers include Hollywood stars Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar and William Shatner. Champions of note include jockey Gary Stevens, gymnast Laurie Hernandez, and coach of the 1952 Indiana state champion Hickory Hoosiers, Norman Dale (a.k.a. Gene Hackman).
Allen & Ginter has long made its mark on the hobby by including signed cards for stars from other sports. However, in recent years, a greater push has been made to also feature entertainers and personalities, including sportscasters, actors, comedians and reality stars.
The signed mini cards are framed and come in base versions along with Black Frame (#/10) and hobby-only Red Ink parallels.
Without further ado, meet the 2017 Topps Allen & Ginter non-baseball autograph subjects!
