With 2018 Topps Archives Baseball, the annual nostalgia trip kicks into overdrive for those MLB collectors who have a special affinity for The Sandlot. Of course, there are still a ton of pro baseball players to collect, as well.

Every Hobby box promises two autographs and each case should deliver one Topps Rookie History Autograph.

2018 Topps Archives Baseball Base

Per tradition, Archives highlights several past designs in the base set. In 2017, it was 1960, 1982 and 1992. For 2018 Topps Archives Baseball, the focus moves to 100-card sets for 1959 Topps, 1977 Topps and 1981 Topps.

Parallels for each include Purple (#/175), Silver (#/99), Blue (#/25 - Hobby only), and Gold (1/1) versions. There are also base Variations to hunt for in the boxes, plus "a limited number of unannounced card variations, themed accordingly."

2018 Topps Archives Baseball Inserts

Likely to see considerable attention from the hobby, the 2018 Topps Archives inserts for The Sandlot make use of the 1962 Topps design, adding Green (#/99), Blue (#/25) and Gold (1/1) parallels. These cards were first revealed in the 25th-anniversary Blu-Ray release for the movie.

Offering an all-new assortment, the 2018 Topps Archives Baseball checklist features inserts that tie into the sets used for the base designs. This includes the 1959 Topps Combos cards for current pairings, 1977 Topps Turn Back the Clock, which looks at past baseball moments, and 1981 Topps Future Stars with new team-based trios.

In addition, Coming Attraction borrows the 1993 design for top 2018 rookies, while Topps Rookie History recreates famous rookie cards. These Topps Rookie History cards also have foil stamp parallels in Purple (#/150), Green (#/99), Blue (#/50), Red (#/10), and Gold (1/1) editions.
