Beckett.com~ “2023 Topps Archives Baseball goes back and to the future once again. Feeding off of nostalgia, the product continues to fold in several years of the company’s designs albeit to create new cards and combinations.
The main Archives base set goes in three different directions, drawing from three different decades of Topps Baseball. Things start with 1956 Topps before moving into the ’60s with the 1965 flagship design. From there, it’s almost four decades into the future with 2003 Topps Baseball. Select cards also get the Image Variation treatment with different photos.
Hobby boxes continue to deliver a pair of autographs. Fan Favorites Autographs anchor the autograph portion of the checklist. Sure, there are some big names, but staying true to the theme, some are more the “popular for a time” kind of players who spent a few months or a couple of years jumping around the Beckett Hot List but not enough to make an all-time, game-wide impact. Some bigger names can be found in Fan Favorites Autographs Premium. These are numbered to 50 or fewer and have one-of-one FoilFractor versions. 1989 Topps Doubleheaders Autographs, which are only in both types of hobby packs, come with a pair of signatures. A handful of other insert sets also tap into old designs, but not just from base sets. Actually, it’s not just baseball, either. 1957 Topps Hit Stars channels the entertainment product that highlighted singers, actors and other entertainers from back in the day. Some of these have autographs.
Another insert set inspired by an entertainment product is 1954 Topps Baseball 3D. These draw inspiration from vintage Tarzan sets. Exclusive to standard hobby packs, these also require a pair of 3D glasses. Collectors won’t have to look far, though as every hobby box has a pair. 1969 Topps Team History Cards Image Variations use the poster design but changes it significantly. Originally, posters featured several players. These, which have just 69 copies each, keep the layout but apply it to one current or retired star. Autographed versions have 20 hand-numbered copies. Exclusive to blaster-style value boxes, there are also 1969 Topps Team History Foil cards. Fun art comes to the forefront in 1979 Topps Comics. LAmour Supreme provides the artwork for this reworked insert set.
1989 Topps Doubleheaders are double-sided cards that pair up a current star with one from the past with both sharing similar attributes. Exclusive to both types of hobby boxes are 1997 Topps Season’s Best. Like the original insert set, these break down into a handful of themes and designs like Bleacher Reachers, Kings of Swing, Hill Toppers, Leading Looters, and Number Crunchers. Sticking with the 1997 theme are 1997 Topps Hobby Masters. These are some of the rarest cards in the product, numbered to just 23 copies each. Hobby Masters are only in hobby and hobby collector’s packs.
1998 Topps Baby Boomers looks to baseball’s young offensive standouts. These are done on foil stock and have a similar parallel lineup as Doubleheaders. Some cards also have autographs with additional parallels.”

**The nitty gritty: Autographed and Serial #’d cards only will be toploaded in the break video. Colored parallels and inserts will be, at minimum, penny sleeved after the break concludes. Select base cards such as those of top collegiate athletes, prospects, rookies, or stars will be penny sleeved and/or toploaded at FountainTown’s discretion or the mutually agreed upon request of the break participant. Combo cards and non-sports cards will be randomized at the end of the break. Players in college uniforms with no professional team name on the card, that is otherwise not in collegiate break, will go to whichever team they were drafted by or randomized if undrafted. Please allow up to 5 business days after the break concludes for product shipment. If participants are in multiple breaks with FountainTown we may combine shipping with other breaks. All shipments will be placed in teams bags within bubble mailers or boxes and shipped with USPS Ground Advantage or UPS, unless otherwise notified**

I'm going to take the Mets, hoping to get this to 12 or 13 claims at least, otherwise may see if you guys want to run a get two instead.
I'm going to order the boxes today so hopefully they'll ship out tommorow. I'll leave it open through Tuesday morning and then I'll fill any remaining spots to close it out. Thank you guys!
I'll take the Dodgers, Padres, and Rangers and close this one out. I'll send payment requests shortly. Boxes are shipped and tracking for Thursday. I'll set up the 2nd team randomizer and look to break this weekend.
