Preview: 2012 Topps Archives
Topps announced another retro product to go with the 1963 themed Heritage set. Imagine my excitement seeing they are using the 1971 design as part of the set. The Pujols card to the right looks pretty awesome, other than the team name is not as stretched out as the 1971 originals. So far it looks to be a 200 card base set using 1954, 1971, 1980 and 1984 set designs. Pretty cool other than the the 1954 cards which we have already seen in the 2003 Heritage set. Also included is the return of the Fan Favorites autographs, which is cool as long as us Rockies fans get someone better than Charlie Hayes as an auto. Looks to be an interesting set and it will be interesting to see what all is included when it's released. My biggest wish would be a Drew Pomeranz 1971 style rookie card, we will see...
