Topps has released its 2013 Allen & Ginter last week with surprises inside packs and inside the actually box. Which I like the idea, but once again also can give a black eye on the hobby. Make sure when you buy those boxes, that the top doesn’t have creases in it. The box I review here had a crease along the top of the box but was wrapped and couldn’t have been tampered with but might have been felt up like a pack at a retail store. Here’s a look at some of the pulls from my box of 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter.
