Celebrating the many years of Topps Baseball, and, of course, its various designs, 2016 Topps Archives 65th Anniversary Edition Baseball covers all prior years in one retrospective set. Exclusive to Walmart locations, every box contains one autograph.

Totaling 65 cards, one for each flagship release since 1952 Topps, the base set revisits the past. Parallels include Green Back (#/150), Red Back (#/50), and Black Back (1/1). In addition, collectors can find ten Rookie Variations, featuring 2016 rookies on a retro design, and ten Short Prints that substitute a retired player into a different set design than their standard base card. The easiest way to distinguish these is based on the card number.

The main 2016 Topps Archives 65th Anniversary Edition Baseball set is also showcased with an Autograph version for the base cards. Limited parallels include Green Back (#/99), Red Back (#/25), Black Back (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1). Signed versions for the Rookie Variations and Base Short Prints are also an option.

Although these are all reprint or throwback cards, actual Buybacks from across the Topps history are randomly inserted, as well. This includes stamped Bull Durham inserts.

2016 Topps Archives 65th Anniversary Edition Baseball boxes retail for $24.98.

UPDATE (12/14): While it was initially exclusive to Walmart, 2016 Topps Archives 65th Anniversary Edition Baseball has received larger distribution through GTS.

  1. I bought 3 boxes and in one of them I got two of the same card. Not a parallel, same stupid card. The Autos were all junk too!

  2. Overall, the cards are nice. Thinner stock than original, and all the backs are the same. But good enough. In 2 boxes had a total of 3 dups. A bit high. But better than I did with the Archives B&W from Topps. Autos were Jose Cruz Jr, and Tony Fernandez. Both on card. But each box also held a surprise – buyback Glenn Abbott (1984) and the Mike Trout black back 1/1. Almost missed the Abbott. The buybacks are stamped with the 65th anniversary stamp and are regular card back.

  3. short set…wish more stars involved and different variations could have made it more interesting product. Randomly inserted buybacks were nothing to get excited about.

  4. This is my first review. I bought 3 boxes last night at WalMart. Thats 3 packs of cards, totaling w/tax around $80. I got 3)Harold Baines, 3)Andres Galarraga, 3)Jose Cruz, 2)Jose Cruz Jr., 2)Ed Mathews, 2)Bobby from Bull Durham, 2)Kent Tekulve, 2)Buster Posey, 2)Nolan Ryan, 2)Ken Griffey Jr.,2)Randy Jones, 2) Frank Thomas, 2)Curt Simmons and 3)Corey Seagers(2 of them 2016 and one of them a Short Print). My sigs were 1 of my 3 Harold Baines, Tony Fernandez and Ryan Klesko. Now I know the set is made up of only 65 cards, and I purchased 48. Obviously, it looks like the Seager SP is far and away the “HIT”. With such a pricey tag, why would a guy like Ryan Klesko even be in this set. So of the 10K+ guys to play MLB in the last 65 yrs, Ryan Klesko is part of this? I mean I’ve heard of getting dubs in packs, but multiple trips??? Now I’m not into collecting for the money, but I would like to atleast get what I pay for. As I look at the box, I guess this should be expected, as the box actually has dubs of Schwarber, Seager and Kershaw. So definitely not false advertising. If somebody could lead me to a link as to why Jose Canseco and Roger Clemens are in this set. Yet the Bonds family gets trumped by the Cruz family. This set makes NO SENSE to me. I need some type of explanation as to why these players were chosen. I like the set, but the player selection, whats up with that??? No Pete Rose, Reggie, Peety or The Unit or Maddux/Smoltz/Glavine, Big Poppy, Jeter, Rivera, AROD, Yount, Schmidt, Brett, Molitor, Gwynn or MANTLE!!! Now that I’m off of my soapbox, can somebody please explain the price? Especially being a WalMart exclusive, the whole thing makes absolutely NO SENSE.

  5. I liked the idea of this product. But the players selected to be on the cards and the number of duplicates per box kind of ruined it for me.

    I bought two boxes and got many duplicates, only about 20 different cards out of 32. In just two boxes I got 3 Charlie Hayes cards. Also, I got the same auto – Ryan Klesko – in both boxes. I guess that’s the bad part of such a small set. I should have grabbed the second box from the back of the shelf I guess. I also got a Bull Durham card with the Topps 65th stamp. Did I miss that on the checklist?

  6. The Bull Durham cards are essentially buybacks. They weren’t on the checklist provided but they are stamped and fall at 1:4 odds like the other buybacks. They are the same insert cards from the main Archives set this year.

  7. I got one box and it had 3 doubles. Not impressed with the auto checklist.

  8. Bought one box. My auto was Vern Law so guess the fact I struck an old timer was okay. My regular cards were no big thing- Aaron, Ryan, Mays were my best… But no parallels or short prints. Set is way too short to complete for that hefty of a price. Unless you happen to snag Ripken, Griffey, Trout, Bench or one of the Rookie autos I wouldn’t waste too much time. Way too many common autos. Unless I see a sale on it for a day then maybe I’ll try again.

  9. Seemed like a decent product but after reading these reviews, I’ll pass.

  10. Well got a couple of boxes and they were so so. Autos were not all that great but had some low numbered cards. That was until my wife surprised me with a box today. Booom Mike Trout Auto to /25.

  11. I am a huge Archives fan, that is the annual release. I WANTED to love this one too, but it’s too hard to. Read other reviews….they tell the story. Average rating from me for a typical average Topps release…for $1.50 or so per card, I should NOT get a double in the SAME BOX!!!! COME ON TOPPS! And this is in recognition of their 65th birthday? Way to throw yourselves a party that no one shows up to.
    And (well at first) for it to be exclusive to WalMart!?! of all places? Why not make it exclusive to dealers or online retailers? Come on.
    Maybe they can try again when 75th comes…

  12. First of all, to those of you complaining about getting dupes in a pack; considering there’s only 65 cards in the set, it’s to be expected. Use your brain (if you have one).

    I like the set and autos. I bought 4 boxes the other day and got 2 Sparky Lyle autos.

    However, I’m having a hard time finding pictures of the variations. I have 2 different Benches and Clemente and I don’t know which ones are variations.

  13. Just check the card number on the back. Regular cards have #A65-XX while variations use A65S-XX, adding an S before the player’s initial and the dash.

  14. I like the idea with 65 cards from the 65 years of topps, but the checklist isn’t the greatest. 10 boxes deep and I realized I will not get my money’s worth, which I already know from collecting for 28 years. I did get a Schwarber Auto on box 10, so I guess mission accomplished? I also have not been able to find pics of some of the short prints.

  15. 2 stars for now. Have only bought one box so far, but not that impressed Received 2 dupes neither special, No current players and the Auto was Ryan Klesko ?!?!? WTF Unless you’re a serious or older fan you don’t even know Klesko existed.
    I know the hobby is a crap shoot so I’ll give it a second or third chance. Guess my biggest disappointment is the past names/players they chose to include.

  16. You can add this to my Nov. 29th Review. Now In total I’ve bought 14 boxes. Its easy to tell, just count your autos. I have 4 Fernando Tatis autos and 2 Ryan Klesko’s. Tekulve, Hatteberg,Sparky,Tony Fernandez,Baines,Law and Alomar Sr.

    I finally got a Kenta Maeda auto.

    There are two things that bother me about this. First off, I feel like topps is Insulting these players by flooding the market with their autos. No offense Mr. Tatis, but can you sign like 10,000 more than Mike Trout.

    And again, not to beat a dead horse, but I literally have like 10 of some cards. In my opinion, a box of cards, that costs $25, and has 1 pack, of 16 cards. If you are going to put dubs in, at the very least they should be different. 16 cards, and I get the same Andres Gallaraga card. No color, stamp. Thats insane.

    Save Money….Live Better? I kinda think corporate WalMart would not like to hear that they’re selling $25 packs of cards where you literally might get only 10 different players.

  17. Topps blows it again. you know why klesko, tatis, cruz, and many others are in this product? filler my friends. topps can put a bunch of cheap useless autos that nobody wants around a few big name autos and call it a set. 65th anniversary is a joke. topps should fire the people who came up with this idea. just another cap product with dead beat auto’s. bring upper deck back to baseball please….

  18. Lucky for me I got the only card I wanted from this set, 1971 Oakland A’s Rollie Fingers autograph and it actually looks like the 1971 card, unlike the autograph cards in the regular Archives set that didn’t have the right colors (black border 1971 and white border 1989) that they were originally printed on.

  19. In regards to dupes in packs.. sure, 65 cards in the set but you get a pack of 16 cards and that’s the problem.. they could have given you 16 different cards per pack.. 14 base, 1 insert and 1 auto.. first box had a Ryan Klesko auto and a Ripken 87 buyback.. second box was worse as I literally had a 5 card full house with 2 Eddie Matthews and Curt Simmons (Simmons auto in those 3).. also got a card to 150.. if you saw videos on yt curt Simmons and Vern Law are the most common (one guy bought two boxes and got Vern in both).. now, with a 65th anniversary set of only 65 cards, you’d expect them to have 65 of the best players and most of the set is lower level talent..

  20. Not a bad pack, but my auto was trash. Ryan Klesko. Wish I would have read the reviews + viewed the checklist before buying… So it’s sort of my fault. I’m sensing Klesko signed 10,000+ cards whereas the others maybe signed ~100? For $26 bucks, give me a real prospect or a LEGIT former/current player. Not only is my autograph crap, the actual card is in crap condition. Does Topps not have a quality assurance team? Oh well.
