2016 Topps Archives - All the Dodgers Base Cards

Topps 2016 Archives Baseball cards are now available in stores.  Go here for a complete checklist.  Below are all the available Dodgers base cards.  As you can see, this years set pays homage to the 1953, 1979 and 1991 Topps designs.

Clearly, the 1991 Topps Baseball card design is the best of the bunch.  Heck, I wouldn't have minded if they used that design for every card in the base set.  BTW, there is a unique parallel associated only with these cards.  An "Operation Desert Shield" embossed stamp can be found in the 100 (#201-300) 1991 Topps design base cards.   This emulates the extremely scarce parallel set that were given to troops that year.

Furthermore, this years set is notable for having a bunch of "Bull Durham" cards inserted within packs.  In fact, there are nine different autograph cards available of many of the actors; including writer/director Ron Shelton.
