2018 Topps Allen & Ginter Non-Baseball Autographs Breakdown

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.

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.
