2015 Topps Archives Baseball continues to play with the time stream, mixing current players and past stars with designs from the past to create something new. Outside of nostalgia, autographs continue to be a focus with two in every hobby box.

The 2015 Topps Archives Baseball base set has 300 cards. The design borrows from three sets from the company's vault: 1957 Topps, 1976 Topps and 1983 Topps. Each design has 100 cards. Numbered parallels include Silver, Gold, Black (1/1) and Printing Plates. There are also 30 short prints that round out the main part of the set, although they're tough pulls at 1:70 packs.

Leading the way for signed cards is the return of Fan Favorites Autographs. Like the base set, these use designs from the past. All are signed on-card. Tougher parallel versions are Silver, Gold and Black (1/1).

New for 2015 Topps Archives Baseball are #1 Draft Picks Autographs. These use the 1990 Topps design for its 25th anniversary. Like Fan Favorites signatures are hard-signed. The #1 Draft Picks theme carries over into a more common hobby-only basic insert as well. Parallels for both signed and unsigned cards come in Gold, Black (1/1) and Printing Plates.

After suiting up for ten teams in one day during Spring Training, Will Ferrell has his first autograph cards in 2015 Topps Archives Baseball. He appears on a different card for each team, all numbered to 10. There is also a much more plentiful unsigned version of the set.

Rounding out the autograph content are Topps Originals, which are stamped buybacks.

Another nod to the past comes with the 1968 Topps Game insert set. These use the design from the decades-old insert with current players.

With another Presidential election on the horizon, Presidential Chronicles feature past Commanders in Chief. These have one-of-one Cut Signature parallels.

Product Configuration: 24 packs per box, 8 cards per packs
Price Point: Low- to Mid-End Baseball Card
Target Audience: Nostalgic Collectors, Autograph Collectors, Set Builders

Product Review

2015 Topps Archives Baseball Product Review

Reviewed by Ryan Cracknell

Good: On-card autographs from a lot of players who haven’t signed recently, Ferrell takes the field.

Bad: Expensive for what it delivers, short prints are far too tough to pull.

The Bottom Line: After a low print run and the buzz surrounding the Major League inserts last year, dealers looked bullish towards 2015 Topps Archives Baseball. And while the Will Ferrell inserts are a nice counter to Wild Thing, there’s not a lot to the product to justify the high prices. Nostalgia only goes so far and if Dontrelle Willis is supposed to evoke nostalgia less than five years after he last played, perhaps it’s time to give it a break and let it build up again.

Staff Rating:
2.8 / 5.0

Card Design: 3.6/5.0

If it has a baseball player on the card, you’ve likely seen every design used in 2015 Topps Archives. That’s the nature of the product — to take old designs and make new cards out of them. Whether it’s current or retired players, everyone gets something new. The photos on a lot of the cards look great.

And the designs do indeed evoke that nostalgic feel.

But so does Heritage. And so has years of Archives, Heritage and several insert sets over the last decade. Personally, I’m exhausted of all the old being new again. More and more, I’m craving new designs.

If you want something new out of Archives, the only option is the Presidential Chronicles inserts, which are about politicians, not baseball players.

I get it, Archives isn’t about reinventing the wheel. It’s about giving the wheel a fresh coat of paint. At this point, though, there are so many coats on that wheel, though.

Checklist: 3.0/5.0

As they have always been, the autographs are my favorite part of the product. Archives is one of those brands that has a history of including players who aren’t the biggest stars, but they don’t have a lot of signed cards either. There is a place for that done in small bits. The fact that they’re always on-card autographs makes them better.

2015 Topps Archives Baseball is pushing things a little, though. A couple of players have only been out of baseball for a couple of years, which isn’t nearly enough time to get the nostalgia bump. Yes, I’m getting older. But it’s not a denial thing for me. If a player was wrapping his career up in the late 1990s, he’s Archives-worthy in my book. If they were a rookie in 2003 and had a couple good years, they’re not worthy yet. I’m looking at you Dontrelle Willis. Mark Prior — same thing. Not only is there no nostalgia yet, but these players came through the ranks at a time when autographs were already a common part of the hobby. While these instances are the exception this time around, I wonder if that will be the case in a year or two.

The base set has a nice mix of generations. For the first 300 cards, it’s great. But things go too far with the 30 short prints. I’m not sure why they became so much tougher this year as it’s a set that has an audience. And Archives seems geared more towards the types of collectors that go after the main set, even if they’re short printed a little.

Sure, making them so rare makes the cards themselves more valuable on the secondary market, it’s to a point where it’s almost impossible to build a full set and unnecessarily expensive to those looking for a basic team set. Being a Montreal Expos team set collector, it seems wrong to me that I’m probably going to have to pay more for Jose Vidro’s base card than the autograph.

There has to be some sort of middle ground. Maybe the first 25 are relatively easy to pull then the final five are super tough. That offers some balance that most sides of the collecting equation can probably handle. But this went to too far an extreme, especially with Finest adopting a similar structure and coming out on the same day.

The biggest thing for 2015 Topps Archives is the Will Ferrell cards. They’re just the kind of thing that can help drive interest in a set. Sure, the autographs are fetching big money, but the base versions are a lot of fun too.

Value: 2.0/5.0

Until last year, Archives wasn’t a $100+ per box product. Actually, when 2014 Topps Archives first came out it wasn’t either. But then collectors figured out there wasn’t a ton of it and the Major League Autographs captured lots of interest. And while wholesale costs for 2015 were up, it wasn’t that much. Yet, come release day, 2015 Topps Archives Baseball came out of the gate at about $100.

This is not a product that commands that much. The quality of the cards is on par with base Topps. The autograph signers aren’t superstars. The designs aren’t new. There is very little that will get you close to feeling like what you pulled was worth it, even if you’re not in it for valuable cards. Yes, there are Will Ferrell autographs that have hit four figures. But there are 100 of them across the entire print run. Nobody should be opening a box expecting to hit one.

From the sounds of it, if you’re looking to bust packs, retail may be the way to go. They seem to offer more for what you’re paying.

This is definitely a product that you’ll want to consider taking a wait-and-see approach if you’re looking for the nostalgia kick. If you’re just looking for a couple of autographs from your favorite team, there’s always the singles route where the vast majority can be found for well under $20.

The Fun Factor: 2.8/5.0

I’m a fan of the throwback. It’s fun to talk about players and eras of yesteryear. It’s a bond that connects a lot of long-time collectors. That said, I think I’m pretty worn out. As Heritage keeps chugging along and there are a lot of others reminders of the past surrounding the hobby, Archives is one of those brands that I see as somewhat expendable. I love, love, love the Fan Favorites Autographs, but I think that’s something that could easily be folded into another product. It does seem like Topps is slowing down at least a little bit on the recycled designs, but I think it needs to go a little further. Other than Heritage and little tastes here and there, stash it away for five or ten years. This will make old seem fresh again.

It’s like eating the same thing for lunch all the time. There comes a point where, all of a sudden, you’re sick of that roasted chicken sandwich and you need to move on. That’s pretty much where I am with Archives.

I am looking to buy gold versions (numbered/50) of the basic set. Contact me if you have some to sell.

Bought a blaster box while shopping at Target. They were marked down to 12.99 from 19.99. Got home and pulled a Kris Bryant SP non-auto, Starling Marte Silver /199, and Mike Bordick fan favorites auto. Hands down best blaster box I’ve ever opened, but I don’t open many


Consistently excellent, year after year.

Not bad retail — pulled a Silver Gaylord Perry auto out of a Walmart blaster box the other day. Have also pulled other Silver SPs and a Gold. Yet to pull a base short print though, will keep trying.

So is Alex Cobb’s name (#278) done in an unreadable yellow on purpose? Feel bad for anyone trying to collect his cards for some reason.

I pulled #142 out of a blaster tonight. Definitely an error but have no knowledge of it being corrected.


I just pulled a Joc Pederson 1990 All Star Rookies Black version. 1/1..


I haven’t seen this reported but, I have a Babe Ruth base card error card. One the back, it says he was acquired in 1990. Anyone know anything about this?


Love the card design but hate just about everything else…One, I can only get the 90’s draft picks and Star Rookies in hobby boxes. Also the mix of all the product has me baffled…I’ve opened two hobby boxes and got zero of the 301-330 cards and the only 301-330 card I got were from opening the 10 blasters boxes (5 each) from different stores, were two Monte Irvin and a Devon White. In all the product I’ve gotten 9 Silver and 2 Gold and a printing plate of Alex Gordon which isn’t bad but I wanted to finish the set and that seems impossible considering the 301-330’s are nearly as rare as the /50 cards…and allegedly there are gold and silver parallels to these as well…I am either the most unlucky collector on the planet or the cards numbered above 300 and their parallels never left the factory. O and the two Buy Backs I got…1970’s commons…are IMO worth less then the commons card I have in my 1970’s sets without the Foil print. What is the point of these cards? Make a 1979 common in excellent (at best condition) a 1/1? Either way I am collecting the base set, but it seems it would be easier to collect jut the 1-300 in Gold and Silver then to collect the entire thing. I mean the 311 Gold Honus Wagner is most likely rarer then his T206 (Rant over…going to by more)


Was at Walmart and checked to see if they had any Allen and Ginter blasters and they didn’t so I got an Archives blaster instead to see if I could get anything good. I was pleasantly surprised by pulling a Jacob DeGrom silver parallel and a Mark Prior fan favorite auto. This product might not be the best from a hobby box stand point but for retail it seems pretty good.


Good product nice selection of current & past players. Card designs are good, the backs have gotten better since they started this product to match that years cards. Hopefully they will do cards from decade instead of just 3. Not crazy about celeb or presidential cards, they no place in any sports cards. Overall I give it 4 stars.


Mark my words. THE NO NAME ON FRONT CARDS WILL BE WORTH HUGE $$$$ IN THE FUTURE! Especially Trout and Harper. Once they get bought up into collections, prices will skyrocket. I believe there are 25 of each. The nostalgia of the 1990 Frank Thomas NNOF combined with the current popularity of non-numbered Topps Variation cards is a formula for BIG value IMO.


Well … Pulled a 1/1 Adrian Beltre plate.


Bought a blaster box and was completely disappointed by the thin, flimsy paper they were printed on. I honestly think I got better board from cutting cards off of a box of cereal when I was a kid. These were a complete waste of my money.


I broke one box and liked it. Plenty of inserts like the card designs . Also like that i got some old player auto’s that didn’t sign much. But i was very lucky and pulled a Will Ferrell Auto .


Love the Archives set each year. Reminiscent of 2003, 2004 Topps Fan Favorites sets. I just bought one Hobby box and pulled a Fan Favorites Marquis Grissom auto (pretty cool) and get this, a 1990 #1 Draft Pick Gold #/50 Mike Trout auto! Unbelievable. Still in shock a day later.


Overall…I enjoyed ripping into a box of this yrs archives but I was quickly disappointed to find so many duplicates(13) in a single box…wow. The odds of being able to build a complete set is very difficult. Thanks topps…who doesn’t love duplicate cards, right?

Dear sir l have error card of Khris Davis #142 the picture shows Carlos Gomez brewers, back of card has Khris Davis info. John czyz.


My favorite chase set every year. 1 Hobby and 10 Blasters deep so far and have been pretty impressed by the pulls. Wish they said what the print run of the SP’s were though. 2 Plates (CJ Wilson, Jason Rogers) 4 Autos (Shawn Green, Frank Viola Silver, Harold Baines base and Silver), 3 SP’s (Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Honus Wagner) Gold Griffey Jr and 11 Silver Base and 9/10 Ferrells. I think the pricing is pretty spot on for what you get. Won’t disappoint. Thanks CBC for all the great info.

The direct cost of Archives didn’t change much, if any, this year. The high box prices are more likely a result of dealers trying to match last year’s prices, which went up significantly shortly after release.


The series and cards in general are great, but the Johnny Bench (202) image shows him as a left handed catcher. Pic is reversed, an obvious error!

Was a bit upset with the Will Ferrell push on this product, eBay sales are crazy priced for them because of it. Topps shot foot on this as the collecting and buying public will soon realize there are more Will Ferrelll cards in this product than any actual player! Folks are gonna be very upset when they realize they are essentially worthless. 1 per 24 pack hobby box, 1 per 8 pack blaster and 1 in 24 retail value packs. Set, not counting SP high numbers, is 300 cards. If one bought 4 blasters they would total 320 cards, 4 being Will Ferrell cards, and I would pretty much guarantee they didn’t get one card of every other of the actual players!

This is the best year of Archives in my opinion. I am glad that the most recent card design of the base cards is 1983 Topps. I am really not a fan of the late 80’s-early 90’s designs. They remind me of all the money I wasted on valueless cards during that time period. I prefer the older designs. Fan favorites autos are always nice for a change of pace. So far I’ve pulled Kent Tekulve, Frank Viola, Eric Karros, Sparky Lyle, Oscar Gamble, Jose Cruz and Brady Anderson. What a crew! Last night I pulled the amazing Rickey Henderson 1981 Topps original buyback auto numbered to 10. Earlier in the week I was lamenting that Topps didn’t use Rickey’s 1980 Topps rookie card, which would have been cooler, only to pull that very card days later. No complaints now!

I also feel like the low-numbered parallels are more readily available this year. I’ve pulled two printing plates (Tony Gwynn (base) and Jorge Soler (insert)) and gold /50’s of Joc Pederson (insert), Lou Brock (base), Adrian Gonzalez (base) and Chris Sale (insert).

This is a very good haul for 5 boxes purchased, so while I may be just getting lucky, I feel there is better value in this Archives set than in previous years. Also very fun for set-building. I have not pulled any SP’s, but the base set is hard enough! I’m still not there yet, but close.


This is the first time I have purchased a Topps Archives hobby box. I am a huge fan of Topps Heritage and have the entire base Derek Jeter Heritage collection in PSA 10 and I would have loved to see a 2015 Topps Heritage Jeter or 2015 Archives Jeter. I have no doubt Jeter will appear in future archives sets possibly even in the look of the 2015 Heritage. At least I hope that Topps is keeping this in the back of their minds as I would love to collect Jeter in every single look of pre-Jeter Topps cards. One other thing that bugged me, Trout, Harper and Stanton, 3 of the hottest players in baseball right now, all in the look of the 1983 Topps (really?!). They could have picked a better year or at least different years for all 3. All in all I will probably give Topps Archives one more shot next year, if no Jeter then I will no longer be a fan.

This set includes three of my favorite designs so I’m for it overall. The inclusion of Lenny Dykstra in the base set is a head=scratcher as his post-baseball life is definitely not commendable.


While opening my box of 2015 Archives, I opened a pack that was 8 blank, white cards. Does anyone know what this is about?


Just tore through two boxes and not much to write home about. Maybe my expectations were to high but dang. Hopefully I’m close to having a full set. As for the price point and the hits are concerned. MEH!


Archives can usually be a reasonably attainable set, despite always containing SPs. Last year, the SPs fell at one in every four packs. In general, I hate short prints, but you could get them without too much trouble.

For whatever reason, they changed the SP odds this year to one in every seventy packs. Yes, that’s one in almost every three boxes. This is low-mid end, right?

I’d like to thank Topps for breaking me of any desire to collect a full set with SPs.


p.s. I just pulled the Sparky Lyle auto–no more than 15 minutes since I posted the previous message. Add that to the Mike Bordick auto I had already pulled and I am raking!!! Gotta love Archives!!!


I’m with D-Lite and Jeremy on this. “Fan Favorite” autos have helped me get autographs of players that I would normally not be able to get–or at least get as authenticated. There are always some big hit autos in the product. I pulled Axl Rose redemption (was it last year?), and sold it that day…but I’ll take that Sparky Lyle auto any time…and keep it. Archives are this Fan’s Favorite!


I don’t think a lot of you collectors get the point of Fan Favorites. D-Lite is right on with his comment about Jeter. The whole point of the set is to highlight players who were “fan favorites” (hence the name of the set) but not necessarily superstars.


A lot of us Yankee fans would like to see other players highlighted. Jeter gets all the love as it is, why not others?


I just don’t get why Topps does Fan Favorites auto’s of players who didn’t play for the team in the year they are depicted. For example Scott Hatteberg, Oakland A’s, on a 1989 card. He was not even in organized baseball at the time as he was still in college! Does Topps want us to believe that they could find NONE of the 1989 World Champion A’s to sign a friggin’ baseball card?!? I know as far as Athletics fans go Topps does nothing for us but come on, at least have players sign cards for the right era and team that they played for, eh?


Are print runs a closely guarded secret? What is typical for a base run for these kinds of products.

How can there be no Derek Jeter card in this set? I’ve been collecting all his Topps “base” cards, which for me include the various Topps styles that occur in Heritage, Archives, mini’s, etc. This would have been a great chance to add a 76 or an 83 Jeter card. I seriously wonder about the thought that goes into the makeup of these sets sometimes. Topps appears to have done the same thing with this years Heritage set: No Jeter card in the 66 style. Yes, I understand he retired, but they did produce a regular 2015 Topps card of Jeter, why not a last Heritage card. As for the Archives set, what Yankee collector would want a Jorge Posada or an Orlando Hernandez card over the Jeter! Stupid!


Low End at over $100 a box this year, and over $150 last year. Low end, high price point. Once again I will have to avoid this.


Do you know the production amount this year
