2019 Topps Archives Snapshots Review

2019 Archives Snapshots is an online exclusive product only available through The product comes in a small box with one cellophane wrapped pack. You are guaranteed an autograph, a black and white parallel, as well as another insert. At about $25 a pop, these aren't too bad!

Product Thoughts
I think it's pretty cool of Topps to have an online only product. It really varies the releases that they have. Like Topps Fire, being only available in a certain place makes for a fun collecting experience. For a guaranteed autograph, I think $25 isn't too much of an ask. The autographs look great and they are on-card. As for the rest of the cards, they have a no-nonsense look to them with white borders. The players themselves are just standing around for the most part at training facilities. It's kind of a funny look to me, but works for the name of the product.

Each packs will net you a black and white parallel. The black and white cards add a little bit to the mix of cards you get in the pack/box. Since they are one-per-pack, I don't think the black and white parallels will be too much more than the standard base cards. If Topps had some colored ink on these cards (like blue or red), I think they would be really awesome looking. I don't think that's the case though.

Some of the boxes will contain these news print looking cards. They document something that happened during a specific moment in a baseball game. These inserts go well with the snapshot/photo theme of the set. These cards don't look particularly impressive. Upper Deck did a similar look many years back in hockey and they were much better looking as Upper Deck went with a very vintage design with yellowing paper.

What I really like in these boxes are the hand-numbered parallels that can be found. I'm a big fan of hand-numbering for some reason and I think they look great. Whoever writes the numbering down has some really awesome handwriting. I always wonder what happens if they mess up some how. I mean, they can't do every card perfectly can they? Will we ever know? Only Topps can tell.

  • A product that doesn't break the bank.
  • Easy to order online.
  • On-card autographs.
  • You have to pay for shipping.
  • Some cards look a bit bland.
  • Some of the autographed content could be better.

Overall Rating:



  1. I’m in. Nice simple cards. Lots of doubles though, hopefully a small set and not just bad luck.

    1. Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: or you can contact him through his website fb page Https:// and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.

  3. I'm in! Really nice autographs and hand numbered cards!

  4. Really nice concept !! Not a big fan of hand numbering but you got some big hits with the blue Alonso 20/50 jersey number and the blue Lindor 12/50 his jersey number too !!

  5. I'm in. Great review as always Blacksheep. This product that has been done in sports card for quite some time now. Nothing special in my opinion, espcially given the other baseball products tops has released this year.

  6. Outstanding review my friend!
    I like the simple looking design and also am a big fan of hand numbered cards. The news print cards and black and white are a nice addition in my opinion.

  7. 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.
