Just like every year, you're not going to find a lot of all-time greats on the 2015 Topps Archives Baseball Fan Favorites Autographs checklist. But that's the point. It's one place where it's okay to find the players that connected with fans over the years.
This is a set where it's not about landing the "big hit." Rather, it's snagging a signature of someone who doesn't have many certified autograph cards. Adding to the nostalgia are the retro designs, although they don't always match up with the player's career.
The 2015 Topps Archives Baseball Fan Favorites Autographs checklist has more than 40 players. The vast majority are retired players who starred in the 1970s, '80s and '90s. However, there are a few players from the 2000s starting to creep in. Yup, we're all getting older.
Collectors can also find a handful of current players including Kris Bryant, Giancarlo Stanton and Jacob deGrom.
Because most of the players aren't Hall of Fame candidates, they can usually be picked up fairly cheap, especially when hobby boxes are around $100 out of the gate. Autographs land two per box and the chances of landing one that's close to that are very slim unless you land one of the rare Will Ferrell autographs.
It looks like they are a few short prints, most notably Reggie Jackson, Nolan Ryan and Bernie Williams. From early listings, it also looks like a few players might only have Silver and Gold parallels. If they do have regular versions, they're likely short prints as well. At this point, though, any short print info is speculation as none have been confirmed by Topps.
As far as redemptions go, there aren't many. Bryant, Stanton and Addison Russell are the only three.
