The 2013 Allen & Ginter’s Review Hub

That’s right, you lucky people, as promised a few weeks ago the Review Hub is back, albeit in a somewhat limited capacity.

This Wednesday is the official street date of 2013 A&G and as you all know this is an incredibly popular release in Topps’ Baseball card calendar! I did a brief preview of the product when the details first came out back in January which you can read here, or for a more detailed look you can have a read of this piece from my buddy, and vintage Topps collector, Craig Parker over in Texas!

I anticipate that there will be plenty of reviews popping up all over the place so make sure you bookmark this page and keep coming back over the next few weeks to check up!

So lets get the ball rolling with the reviews, and the first one is hot off the presses from this weekend’s National Sports Collectors Convention over in Chicago, where Chris Olds of Beckett Media teamed up with Topps for an exclusive preview break of two sealed A&G boxes ahead of their Wednesday release. This was the first time that any of us will have seen this product so feast your eyes on this video!

Further reviews will pop up as soon as I find them online!

The 2013 Panini USA Championship Baseball Review Hub


That’s a hell of a mouthful of a post title!

Apologies for the delay in setting this one up but this particular product has been out a week now and has been really well received by critics and collectors alike! It doesn’t hurt that the cards look great either, so well done Panini for this one!

At around $70 a box and a guaranteed four hits (a mix of memorabilia and ) this set is well worth your time and looks an incredibly fun break!

Anyway, you know the drill by now! Here’s a list of links to reviews that I’ve found online over the last few days. More will be added over time as more reviews start to appear!

The 2013 Topps Archives Baseball Review Hub

Here we go again!! Another in a long line of Topps releases in the first half of the year!

2013 Topps Archives hit the streets yesterday!! I was a huge fan of last years set but wasn’t as sold on this years based upon early views! I love the notion of producing cards of modern players in old designs but it is an idea that can run out of steam pretty quick!

However I may well be swayed as I start to see more appear on eBay and hopefully I get hold of a blaster or two in the not-too-distant future!

Anyway, here’s the latest review hub in all it’s splendour!! Remember if you see any reviews for 2013 Archives Baseball out there please send them along and I’ll post the links here!

The 2013 Topps Museum Collection Baseball Review Hub

With Baseball card products dropping like every 10 minutes or something at the moment, we turn our attention to Topps’ latest high-end release, 2013 Museum Collection!

Now I’ve read a lot of people questioning the logic and business sense of releasing two high-end products so closely together (Tribute released last week) but great looking and really expensive cards are our crosses to bear, I guess!

This really is a set for Game-Used relic lovers as it’s crammed full of jersey swatch and patch cards, with a side-order of bat cards and autos thrown in for good measure!!

And the cards look absolutely beautiful this year! I loved the look of last years as well, by=ut Topps have really upped the ante this time around in the design department!!

Anyway, on with the reviews!

You know the drill by now!! I’ll scour the web, looking for product reviews and then post the links below, keeping them together in one nice and handy location!

The 2013 Bowman Baseball Review Hub


Now this is the one (along with a few others I dare say) that I’ve been waiting for!

2013 Bowman Baseball from Topps hit the streets yesterday, Wednesday 8th May, and has already set the Internet afire with the anticipation of all those new Chrome Prospects autos that we can get our grubby little mitts on.

I’ve got another post brewing about the greatness of Bowman Baseball that will see the light of day in the very near future, so I won’t bombard you with any more hyperbole at this stage.

I expect we’ll see a good few reviews over the coming weeks for this always-popular product, so keep checking to see what all the other collectors have to say about the awesomeness that is – Bowman Baseball.

The 2012 Panini Prizm Baseball Review Hub

There seems to have been a glut of Baseball card products released over the last couple of weeks that’s making the constant and consistent updates of my ‘Review Hubs’ a bit of an uphill task.

So far we’ve had Gypsy Queen and Tribute from Topps, along with Triple Play and (as of yesterday) Prizm Baseball from Panini!!

Despite that I still wanted to get a ‘Hub’ in place for Prizm as I get the feeling this will be a popular one with plenty of folks having a lot to say about it!

So send in any links you have to reviews, whether they’re your own or belonging to another site, and I’ll get them posted below.

The 2013 Topps Tribute Baseball Review Hub

Wow! Products are falling thick and fast at the moment and I’m struggling to keep up 🙂

We’ve got a couple more Topps releases over the coming month but firstly we’ll turn our attention to 2013 Topps Tribute, which hit the stores a few days ago!

Tribute is Topps’ first high-end release of the year and one of my favourites! The cards just look so damn pretty!! However due to the high price point I don’t expect that we’ll be seeing too many reviews of this, but I’ll put this particular ‘Review Hub’ in place just to see what rolls in!
