Beckett headline: 2018 Topps Archives Signature Series: Active Player Edition has auto buyback per box.
The Active Player Edition qualifier points towards the types of signatures collectors can expect. This is a line dedicated to current veterans and young players.
OK, when is a product NOT dedicated to current players and...just say it...rookies?
So it's "Archives" because they take cards from the last decade and the player signs them in 2018.
2018 Topps Buyback Autographs would be a more efficient name.
But the best feature (at least to me) of the regular Archives is the selection of old "fan favorite" players. But they've left that part out.
So it's Archives, because some of it is a few years old already when they start.
But it's not really Archives in the regular sense because it's only current vets & rookies.
There are signatures in Archives, but that's different from Archives Signature.
This is Archives Signature: Active Player Edition, which isn't actually Archives, but is older cards, but not OLD cards of new players, without any old players.
If I wasn't so weary of the whole thing, I'd still be confused....
