2016 Topps Archives

I picked up a 2016 Topps Archives Blaster box earlier this year and I wanted to show off a few cards from the packs that I liked a lot.  This year's Archives takes the 1953, 1979 and 1991 designs and puts them into the set.  Personally, I love the 1991 design as that was shortly after I began collecting baseball cards as a kid.  Seeing the new players in that design makes me feel pretty nostalgic in a good way.

I only was able to pull 2 Cubs players, but at least I got a couple of good ones.

Here are 2 inserts that I liked from the box.

Here are a few other players that were cool to get.

Unfortunately, I didn't get an autograph, but I did pull a blue Sandy Koufax out of 99, the short print Sandy Koufax, and the base to go along with it.  I was able to sell those 3 on eBay for the cost of the box, so it was nice to recoup the money and get some solid cards with it.


  1. All that Koufax from one blaster is some pretty good luck! Congrats!

  2. Thanks! Yeah it was a very good box overall. I still can't believe I got that many good Soufax cards. Lol
