Retail is the only place to find 2021 RC players via the 2006 A&G Rookie Design Variations mini set.
Another common feature of A&G is the insert lineup that can be full-size or mini. Starting with the new full-size sets, 2021 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball works in Arboreal Appreciation for the tree lovers, Birds of a Feather for the parrot fans, Deep Sea Shiver for shark enthusiasts, and Rallying Back, which celebrates endangered species seeing a resurgence.
Of course, A&G is not all animals. Historic Hits identifies 50 of the all-time greatest hits in MLB history. Topps also goes retro with the reimagined T-51 Murad insert for top players. This set has Framed Cloth versions numbered to 51 copies.
The mini sets supply all-new themes, as well. Far Far Away covers celestial bodies, Good for You highlights healthy choices and Hats Off features a variety of headwear.
In addition, collect Mascots IRL, featuring MLB mascots "in real life," along with World Leaders from around the globe and World’s Largest, which displays huge items on the miniature cards.
In terms of the autographs, the 2021 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball checklist normally hinges on the non-baseball signers. Count on a large variety of subjects in Allen & Ginter Framed Mini Autographs. These can be found with Black Frames (#/25) or as the Hobby-only Red Ink version.
