The Topps Archives set continues to be one of my favorite releases each year. I love the nostalgia of seeing legends from before my time on designs I remember. Today's pack features more cards from that set.
|2019 Topps Archives #85 Jorge Posada|
I don't like showing off Yankee cards here, but this one I'll make an exception. I can't quite tell for sure, but it sure does look like 'ol Jorge here is sporting a shiner. It's probably a weird shadow angle, but I prefer to think otherwise. If nothing else, that straight ahead bat angle is pretty cool.
|2019 Topps Archives #238 Joey Votto|
Speaking of cool angle shots, this shot of Votto catching the ball is not one you see often on cards. Regardless of the circumstances of this catch, I find it slighlty odd he doesn't have one foot instinctively on the bag.
|2019 Topps Archives #136 Ty Cobb|
It's all about the uniform here! This card does a great job showcasing how the ballplayers dressed back in Cobb's day. The buttons, the collar...it's awesome.
