Topps recently announced that the three main designs they will use for 2016 Archives are the designs from 1953, 1991 and 1979.
I myself have gotten a fair amount of use out of my 97T template, and tweaked it a bit for this post.
When it comes to replication, designs just don’t come much easier than 1979 Topps.
…which is why I make this solemn vow: Topps, if you screw up 79T, I swear I WILL COME DOWN ON YOU LIKE A TON OF BRICKS!
…Not that anybody involved with Topps will even notice that it’s happened, but the fact remains that I WILL COME DOWN ON YOU LIKE A TON OF BRICKS!
And the same goes for 1953!!!
I gotta admit, I was so pleased with the way this 1953 Steven Matz came out that I’m almost a little afraid to try another 1953 custom. I guess we’ll see.
Oh, and by the way… Being snowed in and all this weekend, I got a little carried away with the 1979 template…
Maybe I’m overcompensating for the fact that I couldn’t drive out to the store to buy a box of cereal with a Hot Stove card in it… Next weekend, I promise.
