2012 Topps Archives Chicago Cubs

Release Date: May 23, 2012

With many great autographs to collect plus plenty of insert and parallel cards this set and should be a big hit and this blogger is looking forward to May of 2012. I just hope that Banks Autographed Originals finds its way into the collection.

The 200-card base set will be divided into five 40-card subsets. Four of those will feature a variety of players, although mostly current stars, on cards meant to evoke one of four classic Topps designs: 1954, 1971, 1980 and 1984. The remaining 40 cards make up the short-printed All-Time Fan Favorites subset. Like the All-Time Fan Favorites sets of the middle part of the last decade

Base Set Checklist:

4 Matt Garza
42 Geovany Soto
124 Starlin Castro

Autographed Originals:

These are actual vintage re-purchased Topps cards with an autograph & special stamping. Looks like a tuff one to get but I would love to have this card.
