This week’s Yadi card is the recently released 2014 Topps Archives #120. I am waiting for my hobby box to arrive and I hope to pull at least some Yadi and Yadi parallels. This year’s Archives use the 1986 Topps’ design, which I have to say I like. They have improved the original and I have seen many of those lately. Of course as most of you know the top third of the card is in black with the team name in red and with the Topps’ logo in the bottom right corner of the box. Thankfully they didn’t recycle another Topps’ picture! I love the portrait of Yadi with his mask sitting on his head. However, it looks like they are using the road unis which I don’t think would look as nice as the home white ones would have. The card has a white border around the other two thirds of the card with his name on the bottom. The rear is in two tones of red with Yadi’s name and vitals at the top with his stats below. This card also comes in Gold and Silver parallels. Again, I know that many folks are over the Archives series but I would rather do with out the higher end sets, which I will not buy and have Topps focus on more affordable sets so they don’t make this rich man’s hobby.
A little 1986 Willie love.
