‘Million Dollar Question’ – If You Could Add One Element To The 2013 Topps Archives Release, What Would It Be??
One of Topps’ most popular brands, Archives, is set to be released next week on Wednesday, the 29th.
From what I can recall when the set came back in 2012 after a short vacation from the hobby, the set was highly regarded due to its use of former, popular card designs and it’s on-card autographs.
For me, Archives was one of my ‘Top Two’ sets of last year, with Gypsy Queen being the other.
It is just a matter of time before the cards start appearing on Ebay, and I personally cannot wait to start going after the ones that interest me the most.
And while I have yet to see a finalized checklist at this point, the previews look great!! I am excited enough about the cards that make up the set to know that I may have to scoop up a few retail blasters to help quench my desire to rip through a box or two.
When I think about the Archives brand and what it represents, I am immediately taken back to my youth as a collector. And since Archives always takes chunks of ideas from other Topps releases and re-issues them with a modern twist, I thought that it would make for an interesting topic, a ‘Million Dollar Question’, if you will….
So, tonight my question is this – If You Could Add One Element To The 2013 Topps Archives Release, What Would It Be?? Of all of the great things that got you hooked on collecting baseball cards as a kid, what specific thing would you like to see brought back and become a part of the 2013 Topps Archives set?
My answer did not take long.
2013 marks the 30-year anniversary of the 1983 Topps baseball card set, a classic among collectors. And in that 1983 set, there was a subset that remains my favorite today – ‘Super Veterans’.
And I want it back!!!!
Please Topps, please tell me that this subset is in the 2013 Archives release and that you have done a great job of keeping this secret before the cards hit the streets. Please!?!?
What about you? If you could add one element to the 2013 Topps Archives baseball card set what would it be??
I can’t wait to hear your answers!!!
