Promising "wide-ranging improvements," 2017 Topps Archives Baseball returns as a nostalgia-focused set. These changes include more depth and variety among the signers as well as some on-card autograph inserts and new base variations. However, the total hits remain the same with two autographs in each hobby box.

Split between 1960 Topps (100 cards), 1982 Topps (100 cards) and 1992 Topps (100 cards), the 300-card base set revisits earlier flagship designs for both retired players and current stars. Parallels include Peach (#'d), Blue (#'d), and Black (1/1), as well as new Red (#/25) versions. Another debut addition, there are also as many as 20 base SP Variations.

Offering two signed cards per box, 2017 Topps Archives Baseball is led by several on-card autograph inserts. The familiar Fan Favorites Autograph set is the main option with Peach (#'d), Blue (#'d), Red (#/25), and Gold (1/1) parallels. 1960 Rookie Star Autograph (#'d) inserts borrow the famed '60 rookie design while the case-hit 1959 Bazooka Autograph (#'d) line pays homage to the box-bottom cards of the past. Collectors can also find a multitude of Topps Originals Autographs buybacks (#'d) that are foil stamped and hard-signed.

Finally, a pair of standard inserts close out 2017 Topps Archives Baseball. Highlighting stars from multiple eras, the 1959 Bazooka Baseball design has been tweaked to fit in regular packs. Also, new 2016 Retro Original cards showcase seasoned superstars on a throwback design. Both inserts add color parallels.

2017 Topps Archives Baseball Updates

Retail Update: Giving retail collectors an additional incentive, 2017 Topps Archives Baseball Retail Value Box formats offer a bonus pack with a pair of exclusive Topps Coin inserts. These, of course, are a throwback to the Topps coins of the 1980s.

Jeter Update: Building on the retro choices in 2017 Topps Archives Baseball, Yankees legend Derek Jeter is honored with Derek Jeter Retrospective inserts at 1:12 packs (or one per blaster). The 21-card main set reprints many of Jeter's flagship appearances from his playing career, adding a special foil stamp. In addition to the silver base version, parallels include Blue Foil (#/150), Green Foil (#/99), Gold Foil (#/50), Red Foil (#/10) and Black Foil (1/1).

There are also more limited options with the case-hit Derek Jeter Retrospective Short Prints. These specifically highlight his debut 1993 Topps Draft Pick card, his final flagship base card in 2015 Topps, and the infamous 2007 card with added images of Mickey Mantle and George W. Bush. It is important to note the "new" 2007 version showcases different subjects than Bush and Mantle.

While most of the same parallels listed above apply to the SP cards, there is no Blue Foil edition. Signed versions also cover the entire set, minus the 2007 variation, with on-card base Autographs (#/5) and a one-of-one Black parallel.

Estimated Release Date: 5/31/2017
Product Configuration: 8 cards per pack, 24 packs per box, 10 boxes per case

  1. Why on earth are they using the 1982 design again??? And the 1992 design is horrible!

    Why not use designs like 1977, 1978, 1981, & 1988, which have yet to be used in Archives?

  2. I would like the 1974, 1977, 1978 & 1981 designs be used. Do not like repeat designs. I like the concept of of mixing in past players. The 2017 Topps Archive set will be in my collection.

  3. Politics aside, the Jeter Bush Mantle card is still an amazing piece of card board.
