Unusual inclusions in Allen & Ginter just keep coming … by Chris Olds

The annual mystery that is the Allen & Ginter baseball set keeps evolving on the day after the popular Topps product’s arrival.

From Topps employee autographs to the Jack and the Beanstalk bean Relic card, there seems to be more unusual inclusions than ever.

Among them? Fire-eater Hubertus Wawra‘s torch wicks, champion stacker Max Poser‘s dominoes, illusionist David Blaine‘s playing cards, Preston Pittman‘s turkey caller, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson‘s leotard, Tony Hawk‘s skateboard, Rory the flying dog’s Frisbees, and juggler Anthony Gatto‘s pins.

And we’re sure this is just the start of some of the unusual inclusions …

See them all after the jump.
