2018 Topps Archives Signatures Series Retired Edition Baseball Player List and Details
2018 Topps Archives Signatures Series Retired Edition Baseball combines two things: autographs and old cards (“old” being a potentially loose term). The product is all autographed buybacks from players who are no longer active, including some Hall of Famers.
As with past Archives Signature Series sets, like 2018’s similar Active Player version, boxes are a single-card affair.
The buyback cards used as the foundation 2018 Topps Archives Signatures Series Retired Edition Baseball come from throughout the Topps portfolio. Base cards, inserts, even memorabilia cards are possible. These are original cards from the past that have since been signed by the player.
Each card comes with a couple of things that show it’s from this product and not just an aftermarket autograph. First, cards have a Topps Signature Series foil stamp that also has the year. Cards also come serial numbered.
Usually with Topps Archives Signature Series sets, players have several different buybacks. This means lots of variety. It also means individual cards have smaller quantities.
