Ernie Banks 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter – Base
There were a lot of things that I liked about the 2013 release of Allen & Ginter – and I am not a ‘Ginter Guy’.
Of all of the prior A&G releases, I think that the 2013 set brought us the nicest framing. The muted Blue works well with a lot of team color schemes, and when the portrait features a Blue background, like this one of Ernie Banks, it ties the whole design together very nicely.
As a vintage collector that loves his legendary Cubs players, this is a match made in heaven.

It is the Blue that ties it all together without being ‘too Blue’. The framing is perfect, the background is just right, and the wording under the player’s image is the icing on the cake.
