Product Details

User Rating:

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.

2017 Topps Archives Baseball Base

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.

2017 Topps Archives Baseball Autographs

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.

2017 Topps Archives Baseball Inserts

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 and his final flagship base card in 2015 Topps.

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 with on-card base Autographs (#/5) and a one-of-one Orange parallel.

Release Date: 5/31/2017

Product Review

2017 Topps Archives Baseball Product Review

Reviewed by Trey Treutel

Good: Unique parallels for each base subset, lots of Derek Jeter love, hard-signed autographs.

Bad: High peaks and low valleys with Fan Favorites Autographs list, more variations that don't add much, tough price point.

The Bottom Line: Like Heritage on steroids, 2017 Topps Archives Baseball obviously recycles old designs, but does so across the entire Topps history as opposed to just one year. The variety can be nice but it does come across as a mashup of things without any connection, which at its core, is the case. Ultimately, collectors must decide if the $120-130 box price (at the time of this review) is worth it for two autographs from a very uneven checklist.

Staff Rating:
3.4 / 5.0

Card Design: 3.5/5.0

So, the positive to the Archives design style is that there is a decent chance that a collector will like at least one (or several) of the different designs used for the base and inserts. The flip side is that virtually nothing here is fresh and there is also a likelihood that collectors won’t care for some designs.

The hardest part for me in the design department is the lack of cohesiveness when you throw a bunch of stuff together. Compounding that is the seemingly random way they jump around to different sets. At least Heritage is on a specific design path.

Following the Desert Shield parallels in 2016, I liked that Topps extended the concept to all three subsets this time around with the 1960 Grey Back, 1982 Blackless and 1992 Gold Winner. I do feel it should be specifically noted whenever there is a back change, like the 1960 parallel. This is something collectors have complained about in several sets with the same issue.

While each design evokes a different reaction, I did enjoy the 1960 base and inserts. The 1982 and 1992 designs are not quite as exciting to me.

Topps did actually incorporate a new design with 2016 Retro Original but I admit that I don’t fully understand the purpose or how it fits in.

Not technically cards, the Topps Coin retail-only inserts are an interesting addition from Topps’ past. These little elements can add something substantial and are a nice perk for retail fans.

Checklist: 3.5/5.0

Showing that Topps may eventually put photo variations in every set, 2017 Topps Archives Baseball essentially trades base short prints for new image swaps. Not especially rare, unique or valuable, at least there are several retired players featured, which is nice. I’m not sure how set collectors feel about the removal of the high-number SPs, but the full base set should be easier to build.

Another aspect that deals directly with the checklist comes in the Fan Favorites Autographs. There are some massive options here that are very hot right now, including current and former stars (Judge and Jeter), to go along with some weaker subjects. There is also a change that feels more like Allen & Ginter, with an odd mix of non-baseball players. I’m talking about subjects like Bald Vinny, Skip Bayless and Zach Hample, among others. They each do have a baseball connection, but it does seem questionable in this context.

Missing from the checklist is the themed celeb/pop culture insert of past years, like Bull Durham in 2016 and Will Ferrell in 2015. I’m guessing that is what Topps was going for in the FFA set, but the end result was not quite the same.

Stretching out the Jeter coverage with the Retrospective set, Topps reprinted and stamped every base Jeter from 1993-2015, which the exception of the infamous 2007 Mantle/Bush. However, there is an altered autograph version for 2007 despite the lack of base. While insanely rare, the on-card signature versions for the Jeter set are pretty sweet.

Value: 3.0/5.0

Even with a guarantee of two hard-signed autographs, 2017 Topps Archives Baseball is a big gamble at over $120 per box. From a nostalgia perspective, the larger variety can help fulfill the collecting value, but if you pull two $5 autographs, that can still be a very tough pill to swallow.

Other than the signed cards, a few things help value, including the limited parallels. While the variations started off decently, many can be had for a few dollars now. You mainly have to hope for a short-print signer.

The Fun Factor: 3.75/5.0

As a collector, I don’t relate to the Archives style of throwing a bunch of old designs together. I do like the variety, however, and the many different elements make it more fun. Topps is clearly open to tweaking so I hope they keep making changes to see what works and not simply resort to stuffing basic variations into every set.

User Reviews


Why have the prices of 2017 archives, bowman,donruss, and heritage boxes gone up so high just in the last month?


I liked this product. Fun to set build, the 1960 rookies and the coins have resale value, taking some of the sting out of duplicates.

Tony Jackson, I’d go through all the cards again. Lots stick together. I did a hobby box and thought I only got one auto. But going through the cards again I found the second. Same thing happened with the 8 blasters I opened…an auto card stuck to the card ahead of it and I found it on a second round of reviewing the cards.

The Jeter inserts is the worst as far as sticking to the other cards.


Autograph checklist is WEAK but at least most of the autographs aren’t chicken scratch sigs (except Edgar reteria wtf). Still, Ill have a hard time paying good money in hopes to pull an auto and find its Bald Vinny or Kevin Seitzer or skip Bayless

Have only bought a few packs. Got the last retail at a Walmart and pulled a Tim Wallach Fan Favorite Auto. Today went to my card shop and bought two hobby packs. First pack yielded a Theo Epstein Fan Favorites Auto Red /25!! Obviously luck was on my side here as Archives odds are very hard to pull.

My 13 year old son saved up forever and bought a hobby box today. His box did not have the guaranteed 2 autos nor redemption cards. Has this happened to anyone? Any suggestions?

Trey Treutel
Trey Treutel

Tony: Sounds like bad luck. If you contact Topps, they should take care of it since it is a newer product.


Can anyone tell me why Topps didn’t produce a reprint of Jeter’s 2007 card for the Retrospective set?


Thanks for the info, Trey!


What is up with 1/1 Blank Back parallels that are listed on ebay from thetoppsvault seller? Are these legit?

Trey Treutel
Trey Treutel

That’s Topps’ eBay account (http://www.ebay.com/usr/thetoppsvault) where they regularly sell those 1/1 Blank Backs for most sets, as well as original photos and signed contracts. It’s legit.

Love the Fan Favorite autos. Brings me back to my first go round of collecting.
Does anyone know anything about cards with gold player name and team name? I would think it is a parallel but it doesn’t have a serial number. It is a DeGrom card and it has “Winner” with a star on it right above the nameplate. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


I bought a jumbo pack at Target gout a Judge rookie auto. Then I bought a blaster box at Walmart and got a black 1/1 1959 throwback of Nolan Ryan , lots of other nice cards as well.

Jack Teppo
Jack Teppo

I bought a box of archives baseball at Walmart. I opened the packs and got a bunch of 2015 baseball update cards? Never seen this before. Is that possible?

John Smiley and Kevin Seitzer autos????? What a bunch of garbage!


A fun break, brings back happy memories. No Molitor in the set probably doesn’t matter to many, but I’m disappointed.

Alex Shields

I’ve recently made the jump from opening boxes to just buying singles. I pc David Dahl so for me it’s a great product. I love the 1983 design. They look great in my opinion. The variations are fun to me to chase even with the odds. I’ve really enjoyed collecting again for just fun, building sets, and pc players.


How do I tell if I have a gray back? The code at the bottom on the gray backs on ebay is the same as base cards.

Trey Treutel
Trey Treutel

You just have to spot it based on the color. Here is a good image that shows the clear difference. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2017-TOPPS-ARCHIVES-DUKE-SNIDER-GRAY-BACK-LOS-ANGELES-DODGERS-SP-/192205645894?hash=item2cc0596846:g:NQQAAOSwIQdZMdeY


I’m with everyone else on the use of the design choices; I am ok with the ’60 design but as a 9 year old kid I didn’t like the design of the ’82 set. I’m giving an extra star just because they have Roger Maris as a Cardinal. One note about cards, I’ve just bought all the Maris variants on eBay. How tough of a pull is the “blacklist”” variant with no “autograph”.

Trey Treutel
Trey Treutel

The odds are noted above but it’s 1:110 hobby packs overall for the subset parallels, so pretty tough.


This would be perfect only if Topps would include black ink on league leading stats on the backs. It’s not that hard to highlight in darker ink the league leading stats of these famous hitters or even of current hitters. Only the exact card reprints show this. This is a little detail that just escapes Topps every year with this set.


Not letting me use the “reply” button, but thanks, Trey! Didn’t see it.

Trey Treutel

No worries, Max. We do our best to keep the info as accurate as possible.


Good deal, but the ’92 set, one of my all-time favorites, as has been said, is thinner than it should be.

Also, Connection staff, need to update for the blackless parallels. I have a Dansby Swanson with no black ink on the front. Beckett calls this the “No Signature” parallel.

Trey Treutel
Trey Treutel

Per Topps, the official name is Blackless as it removes the black ink from the front of the card. For some, it’s just the black signature, but players with black text or logos also have those removed as well. The Blackless parallels have been noted on this page since before the set released with the subset parallels at the top of the base listing.

The Card Stock from 1960 and 1982 was thin and brown while 1992 Topps card stock was actually little thicker and on white card board. I have not seen these but I doubt the card stock for 1960 and 1982 is of Heritage thickness.

The Cardstock for 2015 and 2016 Archives was old fashion brown card stock but thicker than the original. These cards were GREAT. No glossy feel. In 2014 you had throwback design but glossy card stock (boo!!!!!)

Topps would not short print Judge’s base card would they????


Some nice hits in 8 boxes, including a Benintendi red auto /25 and a Bregman auto /75. But the strangest thing is, the apparent scarcity (or maybe just odd collation) of Aaron Judge base rookie cards, the ones with the 1960 design. In those eight boxes, I got exactly two. The Bazooka minis seem just as tough; I got only two of those. People are selling the base RCs things for dirt cheap. I bought four more for less than half the cost of a box!

archives is and always will be garbage personified. As a set collector, i think this product should be thrown into a firebarrell. This mostly has junk parallels/autographs only the fat middle aged men care about.

Heritage > Archives


Brian, I totally disagree. Why would anyone want to see another 82 Eckersley depicting him on the Red Sox? That card already exists in 82T. I would much rather see him on a different team.


David D. -> 201-300 which are 1992 are thinner because they used the similar stock from that year, just like they did with the other 2 years. The try to stick to the original design/feel. 1992 would have been odd, IMO, if thicker stock, since it would not mimic the original.


2 observations, I wish Topps would at least depict the retired veterans on the teams they actually played for in the correct years, like the 1982 Eckersley. He was with the Red Sox then not an Oakland . And both McGwire and LaRussa as Cardinals in 1992? Sorry, they were both Oakland A’s then. And also hearing reports that Jose Canseco’s card is actually a pic of his twin brother, Ozzie.

David D.

I give this product four stars. Cards numbered 1-200 are much thicker than last year, a promise that Topps kept. However, cards numbered 201-300 are inexplicably much thinner in card stock. Unclear why?


Love the concept, hate the design choices, and the lack of a Molitor card breaks my heart.


Hmm… only two Twins in the base checklist, zero Twins autographs, and not a single Twins insert card… Hard pass on this one.

I’m always a fan of Archives.

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


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.


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?
