2019 Topps Archives Review

Topps celebrates more of its history with 2019 Topps Archives. With its huge backlog of card designs, Topps takes advantage of the past by re-releasing the designs in a fun filled product. There's a lot to like in Archives and you don't have to break the bank doing it. Fans of retro cards will surely enjoy the content that can be found here.

Product Thoughts
I am a huge fan of old Topps designs so I automatically really like this set. Topps picks three main designs for their base set. You get 1958, 1975, and 1993 looks. I'm not too familiar with the '58s, but the '93 and '75 cards are right up my alley. The card designs for all these cards are vibrant and creative. I particularly like the 1975 design with the sweet dual color look on the base.

Boxes of Archives go for about a hundred dollars which isn't too bad considering how much cards cost nowadays. There are plenty of packs to break in the product as well. Archives is a nice representation of a mid-range offering out of Topps. One of my favorite things about the set is seeing players on cards from different eras. I really get a kick out of seeing Babe Ruth on a '93 Topps design as well as Frank Thomas on a '75 card. It reminds me of the old Marvel Comic series called "What If...", these cards really are 'what ifs!'

It wouldn't be Topps Archives if they didn't have some special focus throughout the product. This year's main focus are the Montreal Expos. This year Topps celebrates this team with a range of cards featuring former players on varying designs. Teams that have moved or that are no longer around fascinate me, so I'm a fan of the concept. MLB-only collectors will like the fact that these cards are of actual professional ball players and not something out of Hollywood - which is what Topps has done in the past.

The box advertises that are two autographs to find. The cards are on-card which is a great touch. The autographs pop off the cards nicely, and you can find a range of players on the checklist. My Joe Pepitone autograph was a parallel version numbered to 99.

The standard autographs are not numbered but are still on-card. You'll notice that autographed cards come in varied Topps designs - not just the three that were featured in the base set. Lucky collectors will find Ichiro autographs in the product. Man... I'd love an Ichiro auto!

  • Huge amount of variety in terms of the way the cards look.
  • On-card autographs.
  • Reasonable price.

  • Perhaps not as collectible in the long run.
  • May not appeal to people who dislike retro designed cards.
  • Topps has too many retro based cards on the market.

Overall Rating:

  3. It's nice cards douglas hutton

  4. I really like the look of the cards. This was a magnificent review.

  5. Since I'm not that used to collecting baseball cards this product confused me. I'm used to one base set and like one insert or so per pack. Now you have...three different base sets or what? If so I actually prefer the standard configuration.

  6. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
