2013 Archives Extras

The Archives extras are here!

The set contained eight different insert sets, and Cubs players showed up in half.  They were shut out of 1972 Basketball, 1997 Gallery of Heroes, 1998 Stadium Club Triumvirate, and Dual Fan Favorites.

Here's where they showed up:

1969 4-in-1 Stickers

Ryno gets the nod here, sharing space with four other Hall of Famers.

1983 All Stars


Durham was a two-time All Star, making the squad in '82 and '83.  Sandberg made ten straight appearances, from 1984 - 1993.

Mini Tall Boys...isn't that name an oxymoron?  How can something be mini and tall?  The inspiration for these comes from Topps' 1965 football set.

Anthony Rizzo gets the nod with this set.

1971 Greatest Moments Box Toppers

This was an easy choice for Topps, as Fergie won the Cy Young award in '71.

There were also several relic and autograph insert sets, but the only one of those I bothered with was the Fan Favorite Autographs.  Four Cubs were included, and I'll give you a peek when I've got all four
