It’s a little earlier than last year, but 2019 Topps Archives Snapshots has been released, once again as an online exclusive through the company’s website.
Snapshots has proven popular with collectors who seem to like the guaranteed autograph for a little more than the cost of a blaster box and if Topps’ preview images are correct, at least some of the autographs are delivered on card rather than on a sticker.
2019 Topps Archives Snapshots Basics and Base Set
The base set includes 50 cards, including 16 rookies. The rest are a mix of current players and retired stars. A full checklist is available below.
Inserts and Autographs
New to Archives Snapshots this year is an insert set called “Captured in the Moment” which includes a game-action photo of an important MLB moment with a caption describing it. There are 14 autograph parallels, with a rather odd mix that includes Nolan Ryan, Rickey Henderson, Christian Yelich…and David Bote.
The base autograph checklist has 36 names on it including rookies Pete Alonso, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Kyle Ticker and Eloy Jimenez. Mike Trout, Ken Griffey Jr. and Kris Bryant are among the headliners on the veteran and retired side.
