The 2017 Contest of Gintery Goodness - Part One

Woo!  Allen & Ginter is around the corner... and you know what that means for this little blog!  

I'm holding contests.  Yes plural. 

The prize structure is roughly the same from past year, though I cut out the option of getting the entire set because that's basically what everyone seemed to want.  I wanted to be able to offer this prize to more people so now you get the base set plus 20 random SP's and will have the great privilege of chasing down the remaining 30!  Depending on how many people end up choosing this, I may increase the number of random SP's.  My plan is to have zero extra SP's in my collection after awarding these prizes.

Otherwise, if you are lucky enough to win one of these contests over the next couple weeks you will get to choose your prize from the following:

  • complete base set plus 20 random SP's of 2017 Topps Allen & Ginter
  • A selected 2017 Topps Allen & Ginter relic/autograph or two (2) full sized relics (by you) from those I pull (there will be a minor number of disqualifications, but you'll get to see the full list before choosing this option)
  • Your choice of six (6) 2017 Topps Allen & Ginter base baseball box toppers I pull
  • Your choice of 20 A&G back minis
  • A copy of every duplicate I pull from the 2017 Topps Allen & Ginter What A Day! set (on average this should be about 3/4 of the set)
  • Your choice of 30 duplicate inserts (mini or regular sized, minis count as 2)

I would note that these are all limited by who ends up wanting what.  Obviously, I will only pull so many inserts/minis/ect.  If needed, I'll have a drawing to see who will get to pick their prize first.  Regardless, everyone should come away happy.  I'll probably throw in some random goodies just because I feel like it as well!




Your first avenue to entry is simple, and is identical to last year!  Simply comment on this post!  So easy!

All commenteers will be thrown headlong into a random drawing.  Last one standing will get a prize of their choice (see above).

  13. I am really on the fence about collecting the set this year. Getting the base set without buying any packs would definitely sway me, though. I just miss the minimalist designs of the earlier A&G sets. I ended up really liking the 2016 look, but I'm not so sure about this year.
