2013 Topps Archives Football Short Print High Numbers Guide

2013 Topps Archives Football Short Print High Numbers Guide

When 2013 Topps Archives Football was first announced, the base set was advertised as being 200 cards. While that's still the case, there are also some short prints that bookend the set.

2013 Topps Archives Football short print high numbers start at number 201 and appear to run through number 240 (Topps has yet to release a final checklist to confirm this). Short print subjects are all retired players. Many are pictured on the same design as their Topps rookie cards but with different photos. This means a lot of variety.

Like other Topps Archives baseball sets, the focus is more on fan favorites than big-time legends. Inserted 1:4 retail packs (likely similar for hobby packs once they're released), completing the set will be somewhat challenging but not impossible. They shouldn't be too expensive either. The main set has several all-time greats like Joe Montana and Emmitt Smith, but they're not short prints.

Below is a full high numbers checklist as well as an image gallery.

  1. Does anybody know the print run on the Sparkle cards?

  2. brian » Topps usually does not announce print runs of unnumbered cards.

  3. Most of the gallery does not appear to be designs from rookie seasons, i.e. Jeffires 1991, Ismail 1999, McCaffery 1998, Hampton 1993, Gault 1990, Rozier 1990, Brent Jones 1993, Joyner 1993, Simmons 1992.
