Archives Signature Series!

First of all, what a great name for a product!


In the spirit of always thinking of new ways to collect your favorite sets - a few years ago I found out about this product and have been obsessed ever since. I specifically collect any subjects that have signed their 2006 A&G card in any year of the Topps Archives Signature Series sets.


Extreme focus has SO many benefits. But it also has many many faults, one of which being that I am very limited to what I can add to my collection with this discipline. Solution? Find tangential ways to add to your collection! This is one way and I'll document at least one other in a future post.


I added in some details I've gathered below if anyone is interested in reading!

From what I can tell there are at least 111 cards of the original 350 that could have already potentially been produced for this set. I have visual proof of 77 and so far I’ve been able to find 73 of them. I will always be looking for more so please keep me in mind if you ever see any in the wild.
