Topps reveals Ginter buyback auto list



By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

This year’s edition of Topps‘ popular Allen & Ginter line is the 10th version of the retro-styled brand and one of the inclusions in this year’s product that makes it stand out is something we’ve seen before.


Each box includes two regular-sized buyback cards and one framed mini buyback. In some instances, though, the cards are autographs.

On Thursday, Topps released the list of signers for the buybacks.

There are 26 players who signed previously issued standard cards. They are:

Moises Alou
Craig Biggio
Ryan Braun
Robinson Cano
Edwin Encarnacion
Freddie Freeman
Nomar Garciaparra
Luis Gonzalez
Ken Griffey Jr.
Bryce Harper
Adam Jones
Andruw Jones
Clayton Kershaw
David Ortiz
Dustin Pedroia
Jorge Posada
Buster Posey
Hanley Ramirez
Mariano Rivera
John Smoltz
Anthony Rizzo
Troy Tulowitzki
Mark Teixeira
David Wright
Mike Piazza
Roger Clemens

There are other buyback autographed cards — buybacks of previously released certified autographs — that appear to be limited to just one copy in some instances.

    BS, these aren’t buy backs. They are left overs from previous years. There are others that are not on this list. Weak.

    Topps really messed this release up. All the empty rip cards and even stamping non a@g minis and framing them. I don’t know what is going on over there but this is a bigger disaster then tribute.

    I’m glad, for one, that these whiners won’t be buying this product (yeah, right!). More for those of us who appreciate the diversity these inclusions bring to the game. Good job, Topps. Now, when will you be signing the agreement to bring “The Mick” back?
