2015 Topps Archives Signature Series Baseball Details


2015 Topps Archives Signature Series Baseball

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

2015 Topps Archives Signature Series Baseball is a limited edition product that consists entirely of autographed buybacks.

Every card is serial numbered and the checklist is kept relatively small.

2015 Topps Archives Signature Series Baseball is a simple product. Each pack has just one card — an original Topps card that has been autographed. All signatures are on-card. Each also comes encased in a protective holder with a special sticker.

A total of 67 players have autographs in the product. Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan and Ken Griffey Jr. are among the top stars. Collectors can also find the likes of Howard Johnson, Jim Abbott, Mookie Wilson and Jose Canseco.

While buybacks and autographed buybacks have appeared consistently in Topps baseball products over the last few years, this is their first buyback-only product. The closest equivalent would be 2006 Bowman Originals Baseball, which had two signed modern Bowman buybacks per pack.

    Umm, what about 2004 Topps Originals Signature Edition? That was pretty much the exact same concept.

    Here’s the big question for me…what kind of condition are these buybacks going to be in? I’ve seen a lot of rough shape buybacks in base Topps….

    I’m helping with the sorting of this product and to say the least there are some really interesting players in this product. From Hank Aaron to Griffey Sr and Jr to Omar Vizquel!

    Need to see the checklist because who wants to get a Billy Ripken instead of a Cal Ripken. Topps is always good for a bate and switch job which they like to call redemptions.

    It will ultimately depend on
    1) Condition of the cards, and selection (87 Nolan Ryan vs 70 will make a big diff).
    2) Quantity of each.
    3) Cost of the “pack”.

    There are quite a few decent autographs out there of most of them, so it will take a good
    card to begin to impress anyone.
