The main 2017 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball set has 350 cards. Joining the veterans, rookies and retired players are champions and other notable figures from outside the sport.

Every other pack has one of the slightly less available cards. The base set has almost 50 Rookie Cards, including Aaron Judge. Others include Dansby Swanson, Andrew Benintendi, Trey Mancini and Yoan Moncada.
Most of the parallels come in a mini format. In addition to the basic versions, there are Allen & Ginter Back (1:5 packs), Black Bordered (1:10), No Number, Brooklyn Back (/25), Glossy (1/1), Framed Printing Plates (1/1), and Wood (1/1). Exclusive to retail are Gold-Bordered Minis. On the rare side are Autographed Relic Book cards and Dual Autographed Relic Book cards, which have two players. Both are numbered to 10 or less. Cut Signatures come from personalities with ties to history and politics. These are all one-of-ones.
Rips Cards return in both single- and dual-formats. These offer the temptation of whether the collector should keep the rare card in tact or wreck it to reveal a potentially better card inside. Inner Rip Card exclusives include 50 additional Mini Exclusives that expand the main set to 400 cards. These have Metal (/3) and Wood (1/1) parallels are well. Artist Original cards have mini paintings done directly on them.
