2016 Topps Archives – the hits

14 06 2016

I got 2 autographs, just like you’re supposed to, in my 2016 Archives box.  I didn’t get any of the insert theme autographs like Father-Son or Topps Super.  It would have been especially cool if I could have pulled a Bull Durham auto, but nobody on this planet ever really chooses each other.

I did get 2 of the Fan Favorite Autographs.  The first one was a regular version of Charlie Hayes.  Hayes is card #308 in the SP portion of the set, this is just the autographed version of that card.

The other card I got was the blue version of Miguel Sano’s autograph.  This is #/199, which I bet isn’t that much rarer than the regular versions of the autographed cards.  Sano’s regular card is in the 1991 portion of the set.

I’d love to have the SANO! I got Andy Benes and Billy Wagner. Would you like either or both of them for the Sano? I do have some A & G for you and probably some of the 2016 Archives Supers and Father and Son combos. If you want to hold onto the Sano I understand.

I’d be interested in both – we could expand the trade too.
