Another Allen & Ginter etopps set coming soon: Super Bowl Champions Set

This was posted on the etopps website yesterday (1/17):

eTopps and Allen & Ginter are proud to present this very special

Super Bowl Champions collection featuring NFL icons who have
helped lead their teams to Super Bowl titles. In the true spirit of
Allen & Ginter, this extraordinary collection will celebrate the
historic performances of these superstars in helping their respective
teams win Championships. Until now Allen & Ginter has been limited
to baseball releases, but this will allow collectors to experience the
beauty of Allen & Ginter with top NFL Superstars.

To celebrate the Super Bowl we will begin offering cards from this collection on Monday, January 21st at 1PM EST and continue offering additional cards on Monday, January 28th. The collection will include NFL Super Bowl greats including Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw, John Elway, Joe Namath, Joe Montana and Roger Staubach.

The collection will be beautifully designed and delivered via the classic Allen & Ginter design (even staying true to the original Allen & Ginter size), but brought to life on stunning eTopps technology. Cards will be offered individually, encased and be sequentially numbered* .

*While the Allen & Ginter eTopps cards differ in size from regular

eTopps cards, they will continue to be encased in our standard
sized eTopps tamper-evident, plastic case with eTopps sticker.
The cards will be placed into a fitted frame and then fixed inside
of the case.

Be sure to visit eTopps on Monday, January 21st! Cards go on
sale at 1PM EST and be sure to come back on Monday the 28th
for additional cards.

This set is a strong buy even if you don't like every player listed. There are enough Allen & Ginter collectors and football fans to buy this as a set and you can be assured this set will sell out. Based on the other two A&G sets etopps has produced, these will most likely have a print run of 999.

And like the previous Allen and Ginter etopps sets, there will be a discounted shipping offer for a limited time. The 2007 Baseball Moments & Milestones A&G set had a $9.99 shipping offer to have them all the same serial number on the back of the cards.

The usual downside is this will become available in-hand months after their release but this wait is like all etopps cards. Though rest assured, if the Presidents A&G set is used as a measuring stick, you can sell this set easily on ebay with the same serial number.

As a reference, this is what one of the Presidents A&G card looked like:
