Description

2016 Topps Archives is a 310-card set, released June 1st. As has been this brand's trademark, one third of the base set is done in the style of the 1953 Topps set, one third as 1979 Topps, and the final third 1991 Topps.

For the second consecutive year, Archives was solicited as a 300 card base set without short-prints, only for Topps to deliver a final product with ten SPed base cards -- albeit, with 20 fewer SPs than the previous year's set.

Each 24-pack Hobby box will yield two autographs.

Distribution

Hobby: 24 packs per box, eight cards per pack (MSRP: $4). Ten boxes per case.
