Completed insert set – 2012 Topps Archives ’67 Stickers

13 04 2014

This is the third 2012 Topps Archives insert set I’ve completed.  The first two were the 1968 3-D and 1977 cloth stickers.  This is the 1967 Sticker insert set.

Info about the set:

Set description:  “Before the insert card craze of the 1990’s, Topps was experimenting and testing new technologies 30 years prior.  Topps pays tribute to 4 classic inserts featuring active and retired stars.”

This insert is designed like the 1967 stickers set, which were issued as a regional test issue in 1967 for the Pirates and Red Sox.  Here’s my previous post comparing the current set with the old set.

Set composition:  25 cards, 1:8 (2012 Topps Archives)

Hall of Famers: 5 – Willie Mays, Jim Palmer, Tom Seaver, Mickey Mantle, Carl Yastrzemski

How I put the set together:

  • 6 cards from two hobby boxes
  • 1 cards from a jumbo pack
  • 4 cards from trades
  • 12 cards from Sportlots
  • 1 card from COMC
  • 1 card from the NSCC

Thoughts on the set:  I like these cards – in general I love the concept behind Topps Archives and Lineage with the insert sets.  I probably like these less than the 77 Stickers and the 68 3-D cards, but they’re cool inserts.  I wish they’d have had more than one cross-over between the two sets (Carl Yastrzemski is the only player with a card in this set and the original sticker set).

Card that completed my set:  67S-TL – Tim Lincecum

I picked the last card up on Sportlots in December.

Highest book value:  67S-MM – Mickey Mantle

Best card (my opinion):  67S-RM – Roger Maris in a Cardinals hat!  They got the year right by including this – though even some hardcore baseball fans may not realize Maris finished his career in St. Louis.

My Favorite Reds card:  there are none
