2014 Topps Archives Baseball is another nostalgia fix that borrows from designs of the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Taking it a step further are cards from a pair of Hollywood hits celebrating significant anniversaries in 2014. Although the look may be different, the overall structure remains the same from the past couple of years. Hobby boxes once again promise two on-card autographs.

The 2014 Topps Archives Baseball set consists of 250 cards. There's a 200-card base set that uses the 1973, 1980, 1986 and 1989 Topps Baseball designs. The final 50 cards are short prints. Besides Printing Plates, there are two numbered parallel sets, Gold (#/199) and Silver (#/99).

The majority of the release's signature content falls under the Fan Favorites Autographs banner. These use old designs to offer on-card autographs. While it has relied almost solely on retired players in the past, 2014 Topps Archives Baseball sees current players added to the mix. Also new are Fan Favorites Autographs parallels: Silver (#/25), Purple (#/10), Sapphire (#/5), Printing Plates and Ruby Red (1/1). Exclusive to hobby packs are 1981 Mini Autographs (#/25) and Topps Originals Autographs (#/10). Originals are signed vintage cards that come with a foil stamp noting they're part of the buyback program. Other autographs in the release include Triple Autographs and Pop Culture Cut Signatures.

2014 Topps Archives Baseball also has Jose Abreu autographs.

Memorabilia cards once again take a backseat in 2014 Topps Archives Baseball. However, they're not absent altogether. 1968 Topps Relic Cards use a die-cut design, offering swatches from both retired and active players.

Major League, widely regarded as one of the best baseball movies ever made, turns 25-years old in 2014. Although there are some obscure cards for the movie, there hasn't been a mainstream collection -- until now. There are both basic insert cards and autographs that are fully licensed and use images from the film. Charlie Sheen is among the confirmed signers. Basic Major League inserts have five parallels: Gold (#/25), Red (#/10), Purple (#/5), Printing Plates and Worst to First (1/1). Major League Autographs have a Worst to First parallel as well that is numbered to 10.

2014 Topps Archives Baseball draws from several other sets for other inserts. The hobby-only 1997 Stadium Club Firebrand highlights past and present hitters with a die-cut design. Mini Tops Deckle are modeled after 1969 Topps Deckle Edge. These small cards have a black and white photo and come with a rough, stamp-like border. Other inserts include 1987 All-Stars and 1971-72 Hockey. All of these basic inserts have signed versions that are numbered to 25 or less.

As with past years, random hobby boxes and cases come with bonuses. Box toppers come in the form of 1967 Topps The Winners Celebrate. Basic versions fall about 1:4 boxes while Autographs are 1:77 boxes. Case loaders include original Topps player contracts.

A set of inserts based on the movie The Warriors that was originally announced for 2014 Topps Archives Baseball was cancelled due to a production error.

Product Configuration: 24 packs per box, 8 cards per pack
Price Point: Low- to Mid-End Baseball Card

Product Review

2014 Topps Archives Baseball Product Review

Reviewed by Ryan Cracknell

Good: Major League cards, nostalgia kick, focus on on-card autographs.

Bad: Flimsy card stock, bland autograph list.

The Bottom Line: Recycling designs from the past, 2014 Topps Archives is all about nostalgia even when it’s current players. The formula stays mostly true to the past couple of years, which is good in some regards and boring in others. The big coup of the product is the inclusion of Major League inserts and autographs. But outside of that, there isn’t much that’s buzz-worthy. Looking at subjects, Topps is reaching a point where they’re cycling back to an era where many of the retired players were around when autographs became a lot more plentiful. Perhaps that’s a sign that maybe it’s time for the vault to close on Archives for a while. It’s a fun brand, but it might be more important that it doesn’t overstay its welcome.

Staff Rating:
3.3 / 5.0

Card Design: 3.0/5.0

Not much is new in the design department with 2014 Topps Archives. It’s an intentional decision, but one that would be so much more impactful if the recycling approach wasn’t used in so many other places. It’s not that the designs are bad — there are lots that were left out — but more a case of the same old stuff.

The card stock, which adds an important but overlooked tactile aspect to the nostalgic setting the set brings, is completely off. While the colors are vibrant and crisp, the feel just isn’t the same. It’s also very flimsy. The one exception to this is the Firebrand inserts. Originally done on a wood-style stock, it’s replicated very nicely and brings back the throwback appeal — even if the original cards aren’t that old.

Oddly enough, my favorite designs in the product are the 1971-72 Hockey inserts. For one, it’s new for baseball so there is some unfamiliarity. Second, it works. It’s a fairly simple look that balances very nicely.

Checklist: 3.0/5.0

The inclusion of Major League cards is huge, even if there aren’t many. The basic versions are about as plentiful as most base cards yet the broad appeal they bring meant strong interest. The autographs are icing. It is somewhat telling, though, that the biggest cards in this baseball set aren’t actually baseball players.

The toughest part about the checklist this year is the Fan Favorites Autographs, one of the brand’s trademarks. There aren’t a lot of names that bring an immediate wow factor. Adding to this is the fact that a lot of them aren’t strangers to autograph cards. The Archives timeline has gone into the mid-1990s where autograph cards became much more common. In the past, the novelty of the set has been landing players’ first autograph cards, even if they aren’t big-time hobby stars.

The base set is solid. The mix of generations means that it’s pretty much all top players. The short prints make a complete set a challenge but it’s not daunting. Having both Masahiro Tanaka and Jose Abreu rookies as part of the short print list may frustrate some but it won’t add huge price increases over the long-term, especially once their rookie card checklists are bigger.

Value: 3.0/5.0

A funny thing happened shortly after Archives hit. Prices for wax soared. The combination of Major League Autographs and what appears to be a significantly lower print run over the last few years got people excited to the point that boxes hit what will likely prove to be unreasonable highs given what’s inside the average box. Should prices of unopened wax drop to more reasonable amounts on par with past years, the price will be solid given what you get. However, if you’re paying over $100 a box, you’re much more likely to be disappointed in this regard.

The Fun Factor: 4.0/5.0

2014 Topps Archives Baseball really is a fun break despite some of the product’s shortcomings. I’m always a fan of on-card autographs, which this set has lots of. And even if the cards don’t feel right, they still look close enough to provide a solid kick of nostalgia. And of course, there’s the Major League cards. Between this and the Bad News Bears cards in 2013 Panini Golden Age, here’s hoping Hollywood and the hobby can continue to work together to cover some of the great sports movies in a similar fashion.

User Reviews

  1. Will never buy a short printed set. When I get nostalgic for the old baseball cards, this is one memory that isn’t pleasant. I can’t believe that people bother with these sets!

  2. Have enjoyed this product for the past two years. Have pulled numerous surprises, and retro autographs. like the two autos over one, which is a nice switch over Allen Gintner, which can produce none.

  3. Wait one year and you can buy a case for about 55% of the asking price right now, just like with 2013 and 2012 Archives before.

  4. Mixed feeling about sets like this, but it is done well, and has some of my favorite individual cards every year.

  5. I’m pumped for the Major League cards! About time someone did those. How about a Field of Dreams subset?

  6. I love these checklists that come out like this. Then they never update them. Put out the checklist when it is complete. The most important part is always missing. You know the part that you decide from whether or not you want to buy it

  7. Scott » We list the available information at the time it’s given. As the larger checklist is released, we add it as fast as we can. Having a preliminary breakdown like this is helpful for those who want to scan the details. Generally, Topps announces a set about six months out (most other companies are 1-3 months), then the final checklist is out anywhere from a week or two before until a few days after. We can only pass along what we receive or compile if no checklist is provided. Hopefully that helps you understand why we do what we do a little better and if you have any suggestions, we’re always open to that to.

  8. Like many of the other non-topps series 1 checklist that came out this year (Heritage/Bowman) this product doesn’t have the retail hits to entice me into purchasing it.

    I did well and bought dozens of packs of retail Heritage and Bowman for 2013. In 2014 there were no autographs other then for those who can afford hobby boxes. Topps has forgotten its roots. When through 3 boxes of retail (luckly i didnt buy any) and there were ZERO hits (no relics or autos) – just like with this years Heritage I’ll pass

  9. Topps puts out a nice product but they should have done the older stars in the right years that they played in. For example Rickey Henderson, Mark McGwire, Dennis Eckersley and Reggie Jackson are pictured in a year format that they never played in. However they did get Jim “Catfish” Hunter and Jose Canseco right. Haven’t seen any of Henderson, Mac, or Canseco auto’s yet though.

  10. The idea of short printing all the top RCs and most big stars is getting a little old this year.

  11. Looks like there is also a Gold autograph parallel (Fan Favorites) that are serial numbered out of 50. Does anyone know if that took the place of one of the other parallels listed here? Thanks!

  12. Hey Archives, ever heard of the Phillies? One Phillies insert card? Why is B.P. in the Winners Box Topper set? What has he won? If I remember correctly, he and the Reds were no hit in the Playoffs. You won’t get my money.

  13. I just purchase 4 Rsck Packs from Target I pulled just a few inserts that’s about it. No autos no #’s
    72 cards $22 . Next time will be better I hope. Love the cards.

  14. The card stock is nice. They feel different. My 11 yr old said it was a wasted $20. Should build easily if I stay away from the SP’s.

  15. The most satisfying box of the year. I look forward to it every year. The gold foil parallel card are awesome.

  16. The only cool thing about Archives is the Major League autos. I would rather buy them directly from the suckers who busted cases when the market cools off than buy boxes of nothing.

  17. the card stock is nice? im not sure about that. the stock is super flimsy. youre 11 year old was right.

  18. If this stuff is low to mid end, then how come boxes are going for $125 each?

  19. David » The secondary market is pushing it higher. In past years, boxes have tailed off after the first couple of months.

  20. The cards are really junky, just more overproduction from Topps to saturate the market. HOWEVER, that said, the Major League autos rock, and just got my Sheen off ebay to complete the set. The autos are already cooling off fast, so I may have bought too soon. But I got mine. :)

  21. Why NOT buy a Rsck Pack for $4.99 from Target and see how it goes….well just to check out the style and bring back a few good memories from trading with my younger brother back in the ‘over produced decade.’ I am more of a Bowman guy myself and do a ‘Series 1 Topps’ hobby box or two to “kick off the season” BUT had to just check this out.
    The pull from the 18 card pack…..landed –
    1980 Topps Design (#51-100):
    [87 Eric Davis - Cincinnati Reds #32/99]
    1987 Topps All-Stars Set Check list:
    [87-PG Paul Goldschmidt - Arizona Diamondbacks]
    Will I really buy more – PROBABLY NOT; got lucky on the Davis silver looking refractor out of #99
    I’ll save my cash on some other products that really concentrate on some nice inserts and AUTO’s – thanks for the effort TOPPS but not that great!!!!

  22. I’m really not going to be biased based on pulls alone. But my first pack opened was a fan favorite autograph Mark Mcgwire saphire 3/5……but i gotta tell you, i really liked these cards from the mini deckle edged cards to the rookies and legends as well. All four autos were nice auto and “””””ON CARD AUTOGRAPHS”””””YESSSSS. was really looking forward to the warriors set. very satisfied.

  23. Anyone else notice that all of the Abreu 217 SP cards have a defect on them? It’s by the Sox on the jersey. What a shame.

  24. I like the style of these retro cards. I bought two rack packs and an eight pack box with not much success. One deckle Hy-Ru, ’87 Future Star Machado, a couple of All Stars, and a few SP.
    The ’73, ’86, ’87, and ’89 styles are the only draw for me here. As I did most of my collecting in the late 80s. Nice set but high priced considering card stock.

  25. I like the set overall. Bought 1 rack pack from Target and pulled some nice base cards: Frank Robinson ’73 design, Willie Stargell and Yogi Berra in the ’89 design. Also received 1 short-print, Pedro Martinez #249. Found 1 parallel gold insert #to 199.

  26. I picked up a few Tigers singles of base cards at a show. These cards are on garbage stock. This is the worst set Topps has released this year. Dropping $125 for a box hoping to pull a Major League auto screams “SUCKER!!!”

    To Brian, who says “For example Rickey Henderson, Mark McGwire, Dennis Eckersley and Reggie Jackson are pictured in a year format that they never played in.”

    The whole point of this set is to picture players in years they never played in. Why would you want to see players cards in a year they already exist?
