Topps officially launches Archive Prints



By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

After several weeks of a soft launch, Topps officially launched a line of new, larger-than-life baseball card prints on Tuesday.

Archive Prints are reprints of baseball cards from the past for (eventually) all 30 teams and many players from the past. The company plans to offer more than 1,000 images for fans to choose from with two sizes available —  17-by-21 or 23-by-31.  They cost $64.99 or $99.99 unframed or $149.99 and $249.99 when framed.

“Having been in the baseball card business for over 60 years, Topps has amassed an amazing collection of one-of-a-kind card artwork and Major League Baseball player photography,” said Michael Bramlage, Topps’ Vice President of Digital. “Each card captures the style of that year and enshrines the image of your favorite MLB players, exactly as you remember them growing up. We’re excited to begin opening up our archives with these authentic, high-quality prints for your wall.”

Topps says each card is scanned from its archives and then “remastered” by its design team to “preserve the look and feel of the original card, from the printing pattern to the slightly worn edges.”

According to the company, each of the lithographs is licensed by MLB as well as the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and the Major League Alumni Marketing Association.

    These would be cool things to get signed and hang in a man cave, but at $65 minimum, wayyy more expensive than they should be (like most things today)
