2012 Topps Archives Reprint cards

Love it or hate it this years Topps Archives rebirth has a little bit of everything.  And the best part is there are 3 Younts!
Robin doesn't have a base card but he's got two reprint cards and a 77 cloth sticker insert as well. 
I was lucky enough to pick these two bad boys up in a lot. I'm not sure what the insertion rate is for the gold foil stamped reprints, probably 4 per box or so.  Now I just have to find a cheap cloth sticker to round out the set.  

I do like that Topps now has a pretty obvious Reprint mark on the back of the cards.

2012 Topps Series 2 Commemorative Team Ring Card

There are a couple really nice cards in Series 2 this year. I was lucky enough to snag this one quick and cheap to add to the super collection.  I'm not a big fan of gimmicky fake relics, but I really like these cards. They're super think and heavy.  Just an all around great looking card.

Now to hunt down a Retire numbers card...
