2023 Topps Archives Signature Series Retired Player Edition arrives August 16.
The annual release features a single one pack box with a previously released but now autographed and foil stamped card. All cards are hand-signed, serial numbered and enclosed in a Topps Authenticated case.
This year, Topps says cards of players in the Hall of Fame will have stamp to indicate such.
Most cards will carry a single autograph but there are dual signed cards like this Mays/Musial buyback that will be part of the mix.
