2016 Topps Archives Snapshots


Year: 2016
Manufacturer: Topps
Card Set: Archives Snapshots
Card Number: AS-RF
Card Type: Base


I picked up a few Rollie Fingers off of COMC during their Black Friday event.  I've really slowed my PC of Rollie, but that's mainly because there are fewer cards to chase and most of them are low numbered auto cards.  Anywho,  The Topps Archives Snapshots was an Topps online exclusive.  Each box had 12 cards: one autograph, one black and white parallel and 10 base cards.  The base set is small, only 50 cards and there are 36 autograph subjects, Rollie has an autograph in the set as well and there are 2 parallels.  I really like this card and not just because it features Rollie as a Brewer.  It's a great photo.

2005 Upper Deck Hall of Fame baseball Silver

In hopes that I don't want the Rollie Blog to get booted from the Sportscard Blogroll and in the event that I find time to start posting regularly again I give you my arbitary 6 month post.  

This time featuring Rollies 2005 Upper Deck Hall of Fame Silver Parallel card.

1992 Treat Autograph with binder.

Been real slow here at the Rollie Fingers Collector.  Rollie has had a few new cards issued for him.  But the majority of those have been autographs or really low numbered relics from some higher end sets.  So I've been focusing elsewhere in my collecting.  But I picked this gem up a while back.  Treat ProAutographs put out a bunch of different retired and current players using different cards.  I'm not sure what they retailed for.  Rollie's card is a 1992 Upper Deck Heroes of Baseball #H7.  To make this even more interesting Upper Deck also put out an autographed version of this card hand numbered to 3000.

2005 Upper Deck Origins Baseball Red Bordered Old Judge

Year: 2005
Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Set: Origins
Card Number: 128
Card Type: Insert Parallel
Insert set: Old Judge
Parallel Set: Red Border
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 27/99

I guess this will mark the bi-annual Rollie post. I've really let this blog go.  It doesn't help that I have been focusing any of my collecting time, energy, or money on my Rollie collection.  Factor in that the collection has been stored away as we try and sell our home and the lack of office space to scan and to even write post and well something has got to give and that is unfortunately this blog.

Anywho  I do have a few cards cued up and so I figure I should post something to prove this blog isn't dead and won't get booted of the blogrolls.

We have featured here one of the many many sets and paralle sets Upper Deck produced in 2005.  There are tons of parallels to chase for this insert that include some autograph versions.  I like the overall look of the read bordered cards and it being serial numbered to just 99 doesn't hurt either.

1999 US Cellular Stadium Giveaway

Year: 1999
What: SGA (Stadium Giveaway)
U.S. Cellular
Card Number: NNO


This oversized, postcard size card comes courtesy of Tony L. who writes Off Hiatus Sportscards.  He had picked up two of these sets.  These cards came as a five card sheet.  The set included Robin Yount, Hank Aaron, Paul Molitor and Jackie Robinson.  Tony was nice enough to send me his extra Rollie and Aaron for my player collections.  Since we both collect Robin Yount I knew I'd have to go find one of those on my own and I'm still looking.  

Still a nice looking card. I love oddball stuff like this.  The only problem I have with oversized cards is the storage issue.  Not just protection, but also where to keep it.  Something I hope to solve when and if we get a new house soon.

On the Radar - 2016 Topps Legacies of Baseball

It's somewhat of a surprise to see Rollie feature in the set, as Topps really hasn't been giving Rollie the time of day and to be honest it's only one card with a couple parallels, but it's a start.

Rollie is featured in the Traditions Autograph set.  The base cards will be serial numbered and so will all the parallels of which there are 4.  Green, print run not stated, Purple, print run not stated, Red #/5, and Black #/1.

This is a new issue for Topps, but it looks like Topps Fire and Topps Valor had a baseball baby.  I'll reserve judgement until I see actually images of the cards though. This is also a pretty pricey set with boxes going for between $150-200.  You get one pack per box, 4 cards per pack.  2 autos, 1 Vault Metal card, and one parallel numbered to 99 or less.
