I don't know why, but I always love the Archives autos.

Its a great issue, along with Heritage. Classic designs and more lesser known and recognized players, instead of the same top guys over and over. i hope they don't die in the hands of Fanatics.I don't know why, but I always love the Archives autos.
I grew up in Burbank. I went to the store before it got huge. I would have loved to get that cardThis was a solid Dodger mail day. 2 exciting Garvey additions, including his Burbank Exclusive certified autograph 2023 Topps. Reportedly the first 300 people who bought a box of 23 Topps from Burbank got the signed card as a gift. This is the kind of stuff I absolutely love. Now if only I could nab that 2022 ASG exclusive Auto too! View attachment 346180
Also got a nice 6/50 Gypsy card. I still really enjoy getting the jersey serial number cards, but have had to let a lot of them go in the recent past because someone wanted them more than I and was willing to pay dearly. This one was pretty reasonable. View attachment 346181
I thought I had this, but turns out I didn't. I had his 63 Heritage where he is shown as a Dodger, so added this one too. Ed Roebuck. View attachment 346182
Rick Rhoden, easy to forget he was even with the Dodgers. Gone after his 1979 Topps offering, he was with Pittsburgh most of my youth. This one /26. View attachment 346183
Al Oliver, of course. View attachment 346184
Jessica Mendoza. I may already have one version, i feel like maybe a silver one that I got when the issue was new, but I can't remember now. This last one gets the nod because she covers the Dodgers now. I think I have one of the Archive Jose Mota cards as well, who is a co-host with Mendoza.

I think there is one on ebay now, with a BIN/BO.I grew up in Burbank. I went to the store before it got huge. I would have loved to get that card
I can agree with you to a certain extent. I do love multi-player team centric cards, but its hard to trade out a Bench and Schmidt for a couple fan faves at best (unless they nabbed a super obscure guy like a Mike Marshall).I'm also a hater of these multi-team cards. If I were a Garvey collector I would prefer Steve Yeager and Bill Sudakis to Bench and Schmidt.
