2017 Topps Archives: Seeing Double (a Hit!)

Happy Friday night everyone!  In celebration of the upcoming weekend, here are the next three packs out of the 2017 Topps Archives box...complete with our first hit of the box.

Pack 7:
27.  Jonathan Schoop - Orioles
79.  Brandon Crawford - Giants
121.  Marcus Stroman - Blue Jays
150.  Jose Quintana - White Sox
246.  Wil Myers - Padres
256.  Ian Desmond - Rockies
293.  Jose Altuve - Astros
Bazooka:  59B-18.  Yoan Moncada - White Sox

This is apparently a Moncada hot box - first a peach parallel, now a Bazooka insert.

Pack 8:
12.  Andres Galarraga - Expos
83.  Joe Morgan - Reds
136.  Rob Mandfred
173.  Carlos Martinez - Cardinals
186.  Monte Irvin - Giants
206.  John Lackey - Cubs
236.  Braden Shipley - Diamondbacks
Fan Favorite Autograph:  FFA-TWA.  Tim Wallach - Expos (Nationals)

You'd be forgiven if you thought we pulled this card already...we didn't, at least not exactly.  In the first box of Topps Archives we found a Tim Wallach peach parallel autograph.  This time around, we get the "regular" version of his signature card.  I won't lie, I was disappointed when we pulled this simply because it kind of stinks to get two autographs of the same (not great) player in a group break.  I would have liked to see the hits spread around a bit more.  Even so, I'm sure daddyohoho is happy with his Nationals team slot - Wallach does have a nice signature!

Pack 9:
22.  Raimel Tapia - Rockies
71.  German Marquez - Rockies
89.  Adam Duvall - Reds
103.  Alex Reyes - Cardinals
115.  Andy Pettitte - Astros
153.  Frank Thomas - Athletics

252.  Evan Gattis - Astros
290.  Kevin Gausman - Orioles

Have a great weekend everyone - and be sure to keep checking in here at Nachos Grande for the conclusion of the group break.  We are rapidly approaching the end of the box!

I thought you would appreciate this. I picked up a blaster of archives today from target and pulled an auto numbered to 75. Guess who? Wallach!!! Apparently I have a new PC!!!

Thanks for the break and all the cool extra stuff. It's been a while since I participated in a group break or traded - but I will definitely be back.
