1992-93 Topps Archives Basketball

You remember these right? Topps had this idea for a set to go back in time and make some rookie cards that they would have made if they were doing basketball in the 80's and early 90's. I loved it. It was the first time I saw an older set's design reused for a different sport and it peaked my interest in retro style cards which I continue to love today w/ Allen & Ginter and Heritage and such. The first retro set I remember was when in 1991, Topps reprinted 1953's set and I pulled my first Hank Aaron.. I was stoked!

So I found a seller on eBay with a bunch of these and I picked up 4 of them, mostly hoping for the Drexler and Jordan. This was the best pack of the 4 and I got both those cards and another Trail Blazer in this one pack! Yes!
