Best of 2012 Topps (So Far) Group Break - Part 2: 2012 Topps Archives

Hey everyone! After a decent Heritage box, Let's see what Archives has in store for us. At 24 packs per box & 8 cards per pack, this should add quite a few base cards to the collections of your favorite team, plus we have a guarantee of two ON CARD autographs of players from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. We'll also find shortprints, reprints, goldprints, stickers, cloth stickers, and die-cuts. So, without further ado, let's get to it!

SPs: Sandy Koufax, Roger McDowell, Andy Van Slyke, Cecil Fielder, Brett Butler, Robin Ventura

Archives Reprints: 1979 Eddie Murray, 1959 Sparky Anderson, 1953 Monte Irvin, 1956 Yogi Berra, 1956 Duke Snider, 1955 Roberto Clemente

Gold Variation: Jason Heyward, Brian Wilson
Cloth Sticker: Johnny Bench, Willie Stargell, Giancarlo Stanton, Jacoby Ellsbury

Stickers: Mickey Mantle, Mariano Rivera, Joe Mauer
3D: Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Al Kaline

Deckle Edge Die-Cut: Joe Morgan, Roy Halladay

Fan Favorites Autos: Cecil Fielder, Bake McBride
Relic: Torii Hunter Jersey

A great box of Archives. The inserts were pretty cool with some big names, but I'd say we did pretty well on the hits. The bonus relic of Torii Hunter was nice, but we got a couple of great autos in Cecil Fielder and Bake McBride.

I'll be back tomorrow with Topps Series 1 Jumbo
