2012 Topps Archives

   Hello all, back here on The Pack Rip Cafe with my first 2012 product, Topps Archives. I've seen the reviews, both positive and negative so I will throw in my 2 cents and rip a pack here.

2012 Topps Archives
    Even the wrapper gives that 80's flashback.

Some backs

Total Cards:
Teams Represented: 7
Rookie Cards:

Sub Sets:
 1 (Mariano Sticker) 
Keepers for Me:
 3 (Mariano Sticker, Boggs, Davis). The others are available as I already have them for the set.

Front Design: 8 out of 10 Good pictures, nice designs, I happen to be a  fan of 3 out of the for design years chosen.
Back Design:
 7 out of 10 Nice designs, true to their original releases.
Player Selection: 7.5 out of 10 Good, Nice range of young thru veterans with a HOFer..

FINAL OVERALL RATING:   Single into right field. 37.5%   (3 of 8) keepers including the insert gets a hit from me. I like the set and have decided to build it (see my needs on the Buffet side bar). I like the retro thing and hope if they do this set again they will pick 4 different years to represent.

   Don't forget to leave your rating at the bottom.

Thanks for Reading!
