This is sort of an informal poll, but I’m just wondering what your favorite product was over the last 10 years. Why did you like that product so much? What would you have done to make it better?
Pretty simple question.
Mine would probably be 2006 Topps Allen & Ginter baseball.
Why? Well the rehashing of the over 100 year old designs was a great start. They product looked beautiful from the start. The autographed checklist was also extremely good, filled with talented Major League players as well as icons such as Hulk Hogan, John Wooden, and Mike Tyson.
More great selling points were the buyback of original 1887 Allen & Ginter mini cards that were inserted into the product, the rip cards, and just the overall quality of the set Topps put together that year.
While I had a lot of other products I really liked including 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen baseball, 2005 Donruss/Playoff Absolute Memorabilia baseball, and 2003-04 Upper Deck Exquisite basketball, Allen & Ginter began a phenomenon that even the casual collector could get into.
What would yours be?
