Default Ginter X (Online Exclusive)

Who's buying? I see Judge base RC on the checklist, but no Bellinger RC. You can still buy 2015 X online, so it's probably overproduced.

Looks like there were 1000 boxes available (at least when it went live). Guess they could add more available inventory later.

I was going to grab a box, but SmartPost is $10. I might not be a buyer at $80. Maybe I'll see how they go and grab one later off eBay.

Valid point. Regardless of the autos, I prefer both the look and the price of this compared to the regular A&G

I might try some when Topps goes on the seasonal SALE promotion.

But...
1. Will they put anything with Judge and Bellinger on discount this year?
2. Will the stock still be available by those SALE period?

Those are the two questions I have in mind.

If I remember, Ginter X was a 10th (Roman Numeral X) anniversary set for Ginter...now they just keep pimping out the name.

Default Ginter X

Bought a case of it last year.

It was a dull rip (without rip cards). Not sure the checklist is accurate....last year they had no inserts, and the description lists 8 cards...7 base and one mini parallel. Seems like conflicting info.

So, if I am reading this correctly, you can pull NNO mini's from this online exclusive product that are identical to the NNO mini's that you pull from regular A&G release (and also the Red back /25 mini's)?

with judge and belly... yes this one will sell out no question

last year this went on sale for 38-40 months later.. maybe even 35 and they still have it...

plus all those parallels #ed to 5 and 1 this year... good move

They stopped being lazy

I am inclined to believe that is true, but why insert cards from one product into a different product? Also looks like the mini inserts are going to be in the X product too (well some of them anyway)
I think Topps is really trying to blow this brand to smithereens.

I read it everything is all black. so the nno and red backs are black fronts. so technically there would be 50 of a specific player in a red back. 25 with white front, 25 with black front.

I always buy a box of this just for fun. My auto last year was a Hank Aaron Mini Silver Auto so I'm definitely going again this year.

would be really cool if nno and red backs were black front...

would add lots of value..

But in the 2 years past they have done this.. you could pull inserts from the original product in ginter x... but never nno or red back

Just have to wait and see..
