Today’s the day.

It’s been marked on the calendars for some time, but  2012 Topps Allen & Ginter officially arrives in hobby shops today packing the eccentricity that collectors have come to expect from the tobacco-style, retro-inspired release that has been a Topps staple since 2006.

From Hall of Famer autographs — a lineup perhaps not matched in past Ginter releases — to pop culture inclusions, there is literally something for everyone in this one.

While we’ll have more on Ginter soon, for now check out the selection of images from the product after the jump.

    Man, I’d kill for that Kate Upton auto or Kemp RIP Card. And that Koufax plate looks amazing!

    That Ozzie Smith/Jimmy Rollins bat knob card is absolutely incredible. And you guys don’t even have the picture of the inside with the knobs!

    Cracked a box of this, and got an Anthony Rizzo auto, a Bob Knight Jersey, and a Brian Wilson Jersey card. Was very excited, though about the entire box. There really is something for everyone in this set, and sometimes the “hits” aren’t always the cards that excite. Loved the minis, the skyscraper cards, and the historical figures cards. Was a lot of fun to break. Thank goodness I ordered a case that will come soon!
