2020 Topps Archives Active Player Edition


It's curious that Topps has released their version of 2020 Archives already! I feel like it wasn't too long ago that I was purchasing the 2019 version of this brand. But that's the way it is, Topps has released Archvies Active Player Edition to the masses. Similarly to the 2019 release, this product feels as if there are just too many players that you wouldn't be too excited to pull.

Product Thoughts
Some people really don't like these sort of one-per-pack buyback products. I'm in the camp that likes them if they are done the right way. If I am able to pull a player's autograph on an older card that I have a bit of nostalgia for... I'm all for it! The cards in 2020 Archives seem as though they were released not too long ago. Being the Active Player Edition, the cards really can't be that old so I don't get the retro feels I want from a buyback product.

Sadly, the worst thing about this release is the amount of players in it that aren't desirable. I pulled a Dylan Cease card. Let's just say I'm none too happy about it. If you take a look at the checklist for this set, you'll find name after name that doesn't have any real value. For the price of this product, which is about fifty bucks, you can probably find some of these cards on the secondary market for ten or less.

Getting big named players is possible, but they seem to be very difficult pulls. I've watch a good amount of case breaks and finding the big names are very few and far between. In fact, many of the cases I've seen opened just contain the same players over and over again. Because of this, I was heavily considering skipping this product. I only went in on it because the store didn't have something else that I wanted in stock at the time.

Sadly, I can't recommend purchasing 2020 Topps Archives Active Player Edition. As it's brand new, the price is just too high. 2019 Archives prices took a big plunge a few months after they came out and that's probably what will happen to this release. If you really want some, it's probably a good idea just to sit and wait until that price falls.

Positives:
  • On-Card Autographs.
  • Cheaper than some of Topp's other one-auto-per-pack products.
  • Price will most likely be coming down soon.
Negatives:
  • Very tough to get a star player.
  • Currently too expensive.
  • Same guys over and over.

Overall Rating:

3/10

  1. Great review. I haven't tried to pick up any of the 2020 stuff, but I've purchased a bunch of singles and lots off of eBay in the past. Typically I pay anywhere from $3 to $6 per card and have even grabbed singles for less than that at card shows. This product is a total money grab for Topps. But since people continue to buy it, they continue to release it. I personally would never open up this product unless it was on clearance for $10 to $15.

  3. My name is Sarah I am really pleased with this service. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr.Ebhoi. I never in a million years would have thought I’d be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost Franklin in one of our stupid fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything I cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.I read a testimony by a man called Chris Holden about him saying that how Dr.Ebhoi help him to get back is EX wife within 48 hours. I quickly email him and also get back my husband with his love spell and when I was at my most desperate he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it or how this magic works, but all I know is... IT WORKS!! Franklin my husband and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to Dr.Ebhoi email him for any kinds of help is very capable and reliable for help contact him now (ebhoisolution@gmail.com) thank you..

  5. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
