Wal-Mart Combo: 2015 Topps Archives

Back to the cards I received as part of the Wal-Mart Combo I purchased last month.  These five 2015 Topps Archives packs were a nice surprise.  The Archives are always fun as they use retro designs to showcase current stars and retired legends.  The 2015 set showcased the 1957, 1976, and 1983 Topps designs. I was very happy with my pull.  I felt I received quite a few stars from across MLB history and as always I enjoy seeing them on new retro cardboard.  I had seen these before but this was the first time I had actually busted any packs.  These were very fun and packs I was not expecting to see as part of my combo.
These are all great cards.  The Ted Williams and Lou Gehrig really pop on these '83 Topps designs.  Mike Foltynewicz was a big part of the Braves' surprising run to the National East's top spot this year.  
More greats here in the 1957 cards.  One of the best right handed hitters of our time in Albert Pujols and Hall of Famers Wade Boggs and Robin Yount.  I'm not a huge fan of this design but I really enjoy these cards.
Mariano Rivera anchors the '76 Topps design. He nailed the dismount byt being named unanimously on this year's Hall of Fame ballot.  All of the Wal-Mart combo posts that I've put up so far can be found here

  1. Those are some nice looking cards! Like that Pujols card!

    1. Yeah I thought those head shots really looked good on the '57 design. I don't normally tend towards head shots/torso photos but these look pretty good.

  2. This was a really solid pack, the Gehrig is especially cool!

  3. Wow. Star studded pack for sure. Williams and Gehrig are my two favorites.

    1. It's definitely fun pulling studs like those two.
