Fergie Original and 2017 Archives

Fergie Jenkins was on the 2017 Archives checklist and Topps used the 1982 design for his card.  Fergie rejoined the Cubs in 1982 and had a card in the traded set.  Let's take a look at the two side by side to see how well Topps copied the original.

 Archives is a pretty close copy.  I see just a couple differences:

  • Archives has an ® after the Cubs team name
  • Archives had a different font for the name; its shorter and thicker

Otherwise, its not a bad copy.


  1. I'm not an expert in handwriting, but those two signatures look too different to be both from Fergie. I'm a little suspicious...

  2. I think I need both of those cards lol
