Theme Week: Completed Set Week - 2015 Topps Allen & Ginter - Mythological Menaces Insert Set

For the second day in a row, we look at a completed mini insert set from 2015 Topps Allen & Ginter, this time it is the Mythological Menaces set.  And, once again, I must thank Dennis (Too Many Verlanders) for sending me the final card that I needed for my set (in this case, it was Hermes).

Loki gets the first spot in the set.

The rather tricky to spell "Nanabozho" finishes off the set.

Card Design:

The card design is nice enough for the set.  I like that you get some actual information about each menace on the backside of the card.


With only ten cards in the set, it's hard to say too much about the selection of mythological menaces that Topps chose.  Taken as a whole, the set has a nice aesthetic to it when displayed in a 15-pocket mini card page.  I like how the general look of each card goes together well...they look good side-by-side as well as each standing on its own merits.


I'm a big fan of mythology so this set was right up my alley.  Even better, there were a number of mythological menaces that I knew little to nothing about (The Monkey King, Puck, and even Nanabozho come to mind immediately).  A good looking insert set that teaches me something?  That's a pretty good combination!  Overall, I love the set and give it a 10/10.

The full set checklist contains a total of 10 mini cards.  They are as follows:
MM-1 Loki
MM-2 Pan
MM-3 The Monkey King
MM-4 Puck
MM-5 Prometheus
MM-6 Wisakedjak
MM-7 Hermes
MM-8 Eris
MM-9 Coyote
MM-10 Nanabozho
