Quick question… How do you improve on greatness?
Ordinarily I’d sat that was a pretty tall order, however next May I think I might be proved wrong… And I have a feeling I’m going to be quite happy about it as well!
For me the 2012 Topps Archives set was/is the best Baseball release of the year, beyond a shadow of a doubt!!
Modern players mixed with HOF’ers, all on classic Topps card designs from the 60’s, 70’s and the 80’s!! It works on so many different levels that I’m just blown away by the brilliance of it all (OK OK – apologies for the hyperbole there but Archives was one of the few card releases this year that pushed all the right buttons for me, so I’m going to allow it!).
Add into the mix a whole host of retro based inserts and autographs and you’ve got a winner, pure and simple!
Late last week Topps released the sell sheet for the 2013 Archives set, and it looks as if they’ve stuck to that age-old axiom, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’!!
Check it out here and let me know what you think!!
You can also head on over to Cardboard Connection where Ryan gives you an even better preview.
May 2013 can’t come around quick enough as far as I’m concerned (providing those pesky Mayans don’t get their way this coming Friday)!!
