2012 Topps Archives

The 2012 Topps Archives base set of 200 cards contains 50 cards from 4 different eras.
The cards are fashioned after Topps cards printed in 1954, 1971, 1980 and 1984.
Each of the 200 base cards is available in a gold variation.
There are 40 short printed cards in a variety of Topps designs and 1 super ridiculously short print of Bryce Harper.
There are many inserts available: 50 Gold stamped reprints, 10 Classic Combos, 10 In Action, 25 1977 Topps cloth, 25 1967 Topps stickers, 15 1969 Topps deckle edge and 15 1968 Topps 3-D.
There are also relics, autographs, original autographs, framed mini autographs and all -time fan favourite autographs.
At first glance this looks like a super set, not only for the inclusion of 1980 Topps, but for the other interesting inserts.
The jumbo rack packs contain 14 cards.
The pack included:
1954 design
#8 Matt Moore Bay Rays
#17 Mat Latos Reds
#28 Melky Cabrera Giants
#47 Drew Pomeranz Rockies
1971 design
#65 Jordan Zimmermann Nationals
#69 Ryan Zimmerman Nationals
#76 Miguel Montero D-backs
#98 Johna Santana Mets
1980 design

#148 R.A.Dickey Mets
1984 design
#192 Brad Peacock Athletics
#195 Brandon Morrow Blue Jays
#199 Mark Reynolds Orioles
#683D-MK Matt Kemp
No Red Sox, but the inclusion of 2 1980's cards saved this pack from a pony.
