Mixing in a unique assortment of champions, athletes, celebrities, entertainers, broadcasters, and many other career pursuits, the 2018 Topps Allen & Ginter non-baseball autographs continue a hobby tradition that has produced considerable demand in the past.
Naturally, there are still plenty of top MLB players who provide their signatures to the A&G release, but the non-baseball subjects in the 2018 Allen & Ginter checklist normally help up the firepower for the eclectic brand.
Another key component of A&G is the presentation. Most collectors are likely familiar with the hard-signed mini card that is housed in a tropical frame. This frame is synonymous with the Allen & Ginter brand, as are the red-ink signature versions, which tend to be among the rarest autograph options from the product.
The John Boyega autograph is interesting as it features a 2017 A&G card in a 2018 A&G frame. Boyega was actually an unannounced surprise in the set.
The overall Hobby odds for the Framed Mini Autograph insert is 1:58 packs, with low-numbered Black Frames falling at 1:527 packs and Red Ink versions coming 1:1,443 packs. The Full-Size Autographs line, which includes both Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, averages 1:4,163 packs.
But, it ultimately comes down to the overall quality of the 2018 Topps Allen & Ginter non-baseball autograph lineup. To offer a clear picture of the selection, we have the full 41-card checklist along with images of each subject and a quick note about where you have likely seen them.
It does appear that multiple autographs, including several of the bigger names, are issued as redemptions. These are noted in the guide below.
