2016 Topps Archives Signature Series All-Star Edition Baseball Player Checklist and Details


2016 Topps Archives Signature Series All-Star Edition Baseball is a mouthful to read or say out loud. But the concept couldn’t be simpler. Like last year’s similar release, every card is an autographed buyback.

Boxes come with just one item. It’s an original Topps or Bowman card from the past that has since been signed (if you’re unsure what a buyback card is, check this out). The product gets the “All-Star Edition” notation because every card has a retired player who was an All-Star at least once in their career.

Cards come with an All-Star foil stamp noting they’re from this particular release. They’re also numbered and come already in a case. Signatures are all on-card.

Due to the nature of the product, it’ll be tough to nail down a full set. Rather, it’s aimed at fans of particular players and teams looking for a combination of autographs and nostalgia.

A couple of wrinkles have been added from 2015 Topps Archives Signature Series. First up are dual autographs. These are cards that picture two players and are signed by both. Memorabilia card buybacks are also available in 2016 Topps Archives Signature Series All-Star Edition Baseball that transform existing relic cards into autographed relics.

    Was in an 8 box break with a John Franco /32 and a an Omar Visquel /36. Not at all upset about it but haven’t seen the checklist. Overall excited to see who and what cards will be featured.

    While I love seeing Gary Carter in new product, it’s a bit annoying for something like this since they are either going to have to use a sticker auto or they bought an already autographed card (which makes me question the authenticity).

  3. Richard 1 September, 2016 at 12:03

    The dead players are buybacks.
    Topps purchased them, hopefully authenticated them via someone who knows what they are doing, and then added the gold foil stamp and slabbed them.

    Actually, many of these players are deceased. I take it Topps bought cards of those players that had already been signed in the past – hopefully they have been authenticated? What’s the deal with those?

    Just pulled a Hank Aaron 1of1 and a Randy Johnson 1of1. I’ve been having pretty good luck so far with this product.

    I wish my cards from the Archives All-Star edition were in the Beckett price guide- I hit the 1/1 Nolan Ryan
