2017 Topps Archives: Packs 16 - 18

Earlier today, we found a gray back variation card (seeded 1:110 packs).  What else might we uncover from our box of 2017 Topps Archives?

Pack 16:
15.  Brandon Belt - Giants
54.  Chris Archer - Rays
130.  Robinson Cano - Mariners
183.  Anthony Rendon - Nationals
192.  Ryne Sandberg - Cubs
208.  Todd Frazier - White Sox
285.  Michael Brantley - Indians
Peach parallel:  213.  Paul Konerko - White Sox (#165/199)

The Reds traded Konerko away back in 1998.  In hindsight, that was a dumb, dumb move.  As for the parallel, this is the second peach parallel for the White Sox in the box.

Pack 17:
13.  Jorge Alfaro - Phillies
52.  Bo Jackson - Royals
63.  Ryon Healy - Athletics
144.  Ken Giles - Astros
147.  Jose Bautista - Blue Jays
205.  Trea Turner - Nationals
247.  Matt Harvey - Mets
Retro Original:  RO-19.  Nolan Arenado - Rockies

The Rockies have done surprisingly well in the break - or at least I think so.  This is the third Rockies insert (by my count) to go along with a pair of serially numbered cards.  Not bad at all.

Pack 18:
6.  Ryan Braun - Brewers
93.  Matt Kemp - Braves
111.  Danny Salazar - Indians
120.  Dexter Fowler - Cardinals
145.  Hisashi Iwakuma - Mariners

201.  Roberto Clemente - Pirates
248.  Andre Dawson - Cubs
275.  Alex Bregman - Astros

And with that, we are down to a mere six packs remaining in the break.  I should be able to finish off the box tomorrow if all goes well.
