Allen & Ginter World Champions - 2010 - MLB
24 packs - 8 cards per pack
'Look for Any 3 of the following inside: Autograph cards, Relic Cards, Printing Plates, Rip Cards, Cut Signatures'
I received the following:
135 unique base cards ( I am sure some of these are SP's - however, at this time I don't know which ones are SP's.) -- The base set consists of 350 cards - I received 38.6% of the base set.
This years set is in following with previous years. The cards are again printed on stiff cream colored stock. The front of the card features the player/subject of the card and the reverse has info (all written out - no numbers - i.e. three hundred four - not 304) about the player/subject. Crack the Code is back along with no number cards.

Allen & Ginter World Champions again brings 'champions' of many things to the collector. The Revolving Door... who could have lived without a revolving door or Allen Francis - national horseshoe champion, or how could we forget - Judson Laipply - the viral Dancer... This set will undoubtedly stir the imagination of many folks and even cause some to actually think about the history of our country.
Pet Peve of the set.... I have ripped 3 boxes - no Strasberg of any kind - no base rookie card, no mini, no nuttin'... bummer!!!
A&G collectors will have the thrill of the chase hunting down the illusive SP(s) to finish the base set and the brave souls who decide to put the 'master set' together complete with minis, black borders, and all of the mini inserts will certainly have their fun cut out for them.
This issue is also great for the TTM - through the mail - auto collector. These cards will be excellent for autos.
Overall Grade A- I wanted to get a Strasberg rookie.....
Go buy several boxes and send the black border Rays to me - and if you get an extra Strasberg - send it along as well .
