2012 Topps Archives Super Groovy!

Want to own a Kobra Kai autograph? Now you can. Topps has amped up 2012 Archives with some late additions. Wax on wax off! Billy Zapka and Martin Kove both from the karate kid have signed dope looking cards! Makes me wanna bust out my Ninja Turtles Lunch pail and yellow sony walkman. The Karate autos will be lucky box loaders. They also announced ten one of one book cards. These will feature 6 autos per book.

They also have picked up on the Har-vish (creative!) hype and inserted Harper and Darvish. They used the 84 Topps design for Harper and 86 Design for Darvish. Sweet looking cards. I'm a fan of the 86 look as i have a few Barry Bonds rookies from that year. The Checklist on this product looks great!

I have to give credit to Topps. Especially the marketing dept. The twitter has been blowing up. The announcements of the additions are planned to perfection. Our Distributor told us a month ago that there was plenty of this available and it was way undersold. Its now sold out of the manufacture and i expect a price hike after release. Especially if Darvish keeps pitching well and Harper keeps breaking bats...I mean hitting HR's. They are definitely erasing 2011 Seapage i mean Lineage from my throw up in my mouth memory. As a Bay Area guy im excited for the Will Clark auto and the Carney Lansford. I used to play Baseball at the same field Carney played on and met him several times. Heres the auto list
