Description

2017 Topps Archives is a 300-card set, released May 31st. As has been this brand's trademark, one third of the base set is done in the style of the 1960 Topps set (which was the basis of 2009 Topps Heritage), one third as 1982 Topps (which was used as one of the designs in 2013 Topps Archives), and the final third 1992 Topps.

Topps' initial solicitation for 2017 Archives promised "wide-ranging improvements," and one such improvement (and a major one, if that) was the subtraction of "high-number" short-prints to the base set. In the previous two years, Archives was solicited as a 300 card base set without short-prints, only for Topps to deliver a final product with SPed base cards (30 in 2015 and ten in 2016). Another "addition-by-subtraction" improvement was the elimination of a celebrity/movie tie-in; replaced by a 23-card reprint insert of all of Derek Jeter's Topps Baseball base cards.

Each 24-pack Hobby box will yield two autographs and two Derek Jeter Retrospective inserts.

Distribution

Retail: 7 packs and two coins per blaster (MSRP $19.99)

Parallels

All 300 base cards are available in the following parallels.

  • Peach (serial-numbered to 199 copies)
  • Light Blue (serial-numbered to 75 copies)
  • Soft Red (serial-numbered to 25 copies)
  • Black (one-of-one)

1960 Grey Backs

Each of the 100 cards in the 1960 Topps design (cards #1-#100) are available in a Grey Back parallel. In the 1960 Topps set, the low series cards were printed on cream-colored cardstock; while the middle series cards were printed on a darker greyish stock.

1982 No Sigs

Each of the 100 cards in the 1982 Topps design (cards #101-#200) are available in a "No Sig" parallel. In the 1982 Topps set, some cards were printed without black ink. This caused the cards to be missing the facsimile autograph that was standard on all cards.

1992 Gold Winners

Each of the 100 cards in the 1992 Topps design (cards #201-#300) are available in a Gold Winner parallel. This is in tribute to the landmark 1992 Topps Gold Winners parallel.

Derek Jeter Retrospective

Similar to the Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays reprint inserts from late 90s Topps, Derek Jeter Retrospective reprints all 23 of Jeter's Topps flagship base cards from 1993-2015. Each card has a special foil stamp on the front of the card differentiating it from the originals and a serial of foil-stamped parallels are also available.

  • Blue Foil (serial-numbered to 150 copies)
  • Green Foil (serial-numbered to 99 copies)
  • Gold Foil (serial-numbered to 50 copies)
  • Red Foil (serial-numbered to ten)
  • Orange Foil (one-of-one)

Three of the Jeter reprints are short-printed (1993, 2007 and 2015) and seeded into packs on the "case-hit" level.
