Topps will include autographs from Bull Durham star Kevin Costner (and likely others) in 2016 Topps Archives. They’re not saying much yet, but they did release this little teaser on Instagram.
Last year, Topps included Will Ferrell signed and unsigned cards in Archives and in 2014, Charlie Sheen and other stars from the movie Major League were featured in the product.
