I treated myself on Black Friday to four boxes of 2016 Topps Archives Snapshots. Topps.com had some great deals and I just couldn’t resist.
Topps only made 5000 boxes of this online exclusive set. Every box of Snapshots contains 12 cards (10 base, 1 black & white, & 1 autograph). The auto checklist has some big names so I was hoping to hit something good.
This set has a reputation for bad collation but in four boxes I got 40 different base cards. I’m definitely going to track down the last 10 cards and finish the set off. I’m also very happy with my black & whites. Two Red Sox cards including a very sharp looking Yaz. If these were printed evenly, and as far as I know they were, there should only be 100 of each. As for my autos…WOW! Carlos Correa auto numbered out of 10! Sweet! I consider Garvey an all-time great so that’s a nice addition. Severino has a ton of talent and should be better this year. I didn’t really need another Johnson auto (see my last post) but I’ll always take another Red Sox auto. Overall, extremely happy with my four boxes.
