Two Rack Packs of 2017 Archives
AT LONG LAST!
I did a bit of scouring to finally get some Archives, but rest assured that it's finally here, in my hands, on this blog. I haven't seen a ton of this stuff on the blogs, which is odd, but I'm still not deterred, as that also means I haven't heard much outcry about it either.
I got two rack packs and a blaster. The blaster will be opened tomorrow. I am collecting the set, so only dupes will be up for trade, if applicable.
This, my friends, is what the 1960s look like, and to be perfectly honest...I'm impressed. Yes, it would have been pretty tough for Topps to screw this up after just acing it 8 years ago, but it looks nice here, as it is more geared towards studio shots. I also like the fact that the card stock is thicker on the 60's, to give more of a feeling of authenticity...despite catering teams that weren't around in 1960.
Fout nice 60s. The background of Bour's does look a bit odd, but they're still nice.
I really enjoyed this set, and i think Topps is still improving the set after a weak start 5 years ago. I got a blaster of the stuff as well, and that'll go up tomorrow.
