‘Million Dollar Question – ‘What Card Designs Would You Like To See Featured In 2014’s Topps Archives Set’???
As many collectors, myself included, eagerly await the release of the 2013 Topps Archives baseball card brand, I am very excited to tear up some wax again. I have not opened up a single pack of cards since Topps’ 2013 Gypsy Queen came out a few months ago and I cannot wait to find Archives at a retail locations within the next day or so.
The new Archives brand, like last year’s release, will offer us 200 base cards featuring 4 prior Topps designs. In 2012, the set re-used the designs from 1954, 1971, 1980, and 1984. This year’s set will feature the popular 1972, 1982, 1985, and 1990 graphics.
I am especially excited to see how the cards that feature the 1985 Topps design look as this was the first set that I collected as a kid and I have a lot of fond memories of ripping through those packs back in ’85.
While I don’t want to gloss over this year’s Archives release, I have to say that I am already crossing my fingers in hopes that this brand will continue past 2013 and have another release in 2014. And with that, we will certainly have more of our favorite designs to see once again featuring both players of the past as well as today’s stars.
And that is what tonight’s ‘Million Dollar Question’ is all about – ‘What Card Designs Would You Like To See Featured In 2014’s Topps Archives Set’???
Not counting the eight card designs that Topps used for the 2012 and 2013 sets, there are still some fantastic card designs from their past that I would love to see featured in next year’s release.
And if I had to supply you with a list of just four, they would be:
- 1968 Topps
- 1973 Topps
- 1981 Topps
- 1989 Topps
I think that a set that featured these four designs would be fantastic – just the right amount of bright color, solid graphics, and plenty of room for exceptional images!!!
So now I pose the question to you – ‘What Card Designs Would You Like To See Featured In 2014’s Topps Archives Set’???
