2012 Topps Archives-Gary Carter

Gary Carter remains to be one of my favorite catcher’s. I remember as a boy, I was always excited to get one of his cards, and the feeling remains to this day.  A blaster or pack of cards worth virtually nothing, can be a success if I get a Gary Carter base card.  This very thing happened when I bought a blaster of 2012 Topps Archives.  To my knowledge, this card caused more excitement than any other I pulled.

Gary Carter 3

#194, Gary Carter

I am not overly impressed by this card.  I know it is based on the ’84 Topps design, which isn’t one that I am fond of.  The coloring of the team name and player name don’t work well with each other, nor do they go with the uniform colors.  As far as image selection goes, I wish one of the two would have shown Carter in his catcher’s gear.  It is a very busy design, and in this case, just doesn’t do anything for me.
