CARDBOARD REVIEW:2019 Topps Archives Baseball

Just like with Heritage, Topps Archives dig back into time and finds multiple designs from Topps past.

This year we are diving into 1958,1975 and 1993 for designs so this should be fun.

Let 'er rip!

In every box of 2019 Topps Archives you will find 24 packs of 9 cards each. Boxes will include 2 on card autographs and boxes currently run around $80-$85.

1993 Design

The base card set is massive with 300 cards to chase. There are 100 cards in each of the years that include players from the past, present and the future of baseball

 1958 Design

 1975 Design to me is where it's at! So colorful

And includes this guy!

1975 Topps Highlights

1958 Topps Magazine All Star

1993 Topps Rookies

There are also Base Card Sp's to find as well.  There are 30 of them to collect that expand the base set.

Here is the breakdown of Parallels
PARALLEL CARDS: Purple /175, Silver /99, Blue /25 and Gold 1/1.
SUBSET PARALLEL 1975 Signature Omission and 1993 Topps Gold that fall 1:207 packs
Silver /99. I swear Kershaw stalks me


Topps Magazine is back! Well, at least an insert of it. These fall 1:6 packs and have 20 cards to collect. Which I need to find myself the Griffey Jr.

 Ichiro Retrospective had me upside down. Well, just my photo. There are 16 cards to collect in all and fall 1:12 packs. There are also three short prints. Not sure if I got one or not.

These fall one per box with 25 cards to collect celebrating the 50 years of Expos. I wonder how that Tampa Bay team will fair next year in Montreal. Will they bring back the Expos....

Nice pull here, Bartolo Colon Expos auto that falls 1:54 packs

Other hits not found in my box but could be in yours include,
  • 1978 Topps Record Breaker Autographs
  • 1994 Future Star Autographs
  • Ichiro Retrospective Autographs
  • Topps Magazine Autographs
  • Topps Originals Autograph
OVERALL THOUGHTS: This product was a fun rip. I enjoyed seeing the players in designs that wouldn't normally be seen and finding Expos cards again. Landing two on-card autographs was fun to especially of players you don't see everyday. For me there was one glaring hole and that's not having a baseball related non sports add in like the last few years. I was disappointed in that.

This is definitely a break for the nostalgic collectors with the players, designs and autographs involved.

If you want in on a box break of this product without paying box prices, I suggest Midwest Box Breaks as they pull fire!

    1. Bartolo has a cult-like following... I bet that card is pretty hot.
      Nice pull!

  2. Oh man... I'm so stoked to see that Colon has an Expos autograph. Gotta grab that signature.
