Tony Perez 2001 Topps Archives

It seems as if Topps honored their Record Breakers cards in their new Archives set by simply re-issuing the same exact card, just in a more modern fashion (thicker cardstock, glossier finish).

And I am good with that – especially when the card looks like this:

This card of Tony Perez is an exact replica of his card from the 1986 Topps set.

The card honors Perez as being the oldest player in major league history to hit a Grand Slam.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the new record holder is Julio Franco, who in 2005 hit a Grand Slam at the age of 47.
