Father’s Day is rapidly approaching and finding that perfect gift is always a challenge. That’s where Topps, the leading retailer of officially licensed baseball cards, comes into the picture with their recently launched Topps Archive Collections, Series 1. Topps combed through their archives, putting together an all new collectible product inspired by some of the greatest teams and most memorable moments that Major League Baseball has ever seen.
The Topps Archive Collections, Series 1 pays tribute to superstars and unsung heroes alike, capturing players in their heyday just as fans remember them. In this case, the focus is on the 1977 New York Yankees and how they climbed “Back On Top”.
The 1977 Yankees went 100-62 before winning the World Series with a roster loaded with talent. Mickey Rivers (.326/.350/.439) and Lou Piniella (.330/.365/.510) paced a power heavy offensive attack. Third baseman Graig Nettles led the way with 37 home runs and 107 RBI. Reggie Jackson chipped in 32 and 110 of his own, along with a .286/.375/.550 line. Thurman Munson, Chris Chambliss, and Willie Randolph each brought plenty of contributions of their own to the plate. The team’s pitching staff was led by six arms with double digit wins. Ron Guidry and Ed Figueroa led the way with 16 apiece. Even Sparky Lyle, the team’s closer, won 13 games to go along with his 26 saves.
The Topps Archive Collections, Series 1 is sold in a single box set and includes all of the following:
- 1 wax pack poster set (5 posters)
- 6 team patches
- 6 team buttons
- 1 team pennant
- 1 team t-shirt
