Just One Pack: 2020 Archives Hanger


Considering I was expecting nothing on the shelves at Wally World, I was happy to find anything, such as this pack of Archives.


Elvis Andrus in 2002 form becomes my first Archives card of 2020. I'm not the biggest fan of this design, but at least I got a card featuring Old Comiskey park and its immediately recognizable yellow railings and green seats. And Trammell is not a name that makes frequent appearances in any set with a legends portion. 

1955 should end up as my favourite portion of this set based on a pair of Mets cards in this, but I still like the Trammell/Comiskey card enough to make it my my favourite. 

Here are a pair of inserts. I don't feel like damaging my eyesight to read the odds on the pack and find out what the odds of getting these in a single hanger pack are. 
And your 1974s. Either rookies or legends in this part. The Schmidt photo seems new to me, so at least there's that. 

So, despite two Mets cards, and Dustin May's hair, the Trammell is my pick for the pack. Now if only some retail Stadium Club would appear...


  1. I haven't been able to find any cards of any sport at my local department stores the past few months.

  2. Voting for the Bagwell insert.

    The Schmidt photo looks like a pop-up, which I can not endorse. Banks and Feller are nice.
