2012 Topps Archives 1982 In Action

Set Type: Insert
Card dimensions: 2½” x 3½”
Additional Information/14,000 Phillies Commentary: Inserted in packs of 2012 Topps Archives. As suggested by the name, the design of the set is based on the design of the In Action subset in 1982 Topps. I especially like the job Topps did with Kruk’s card — I’m not even going to take points away for the fact that this photo was used for Kruk’s card in the 2003 Topps Retired set. The only possible way that this card could’ve been better is if they had used an action photo of Kruk wearing the uniform the Phillies used ’82 — the same style Kruk wore until the Phillies replaced it at the start of 1992.
