Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Archives – Base – 1986 Topps Design
I was so excited when my shipment of loose singles arrived the other day because my ‘pool’ of Jose Fernandez cards had dried up.
But, I now have a decent little stack of new additions to my collection – and stuff to show off on the blog.
This is the base card of Jose from the 2014 Topps Archives set:
Obviously, this card features the 1986 Topps baseball card design. And the use of Orange with an image that features the reigning NL ROY in his Orange jersey works perfectly.
I’ve always liked the ’86 Topps card design – I have affectionately tagged it as the ‘stencil set’.
Hopefully I can haul in both the Silver & Gold versions of this card soon too.
As an aside, Jose was born six years after this set was released – WHOA!!!
