It looks like 2017 Topps Archives will be a home for The Captain.

Topps revealed on Thursday its plans for a Retrospective set for former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter that will be found in packs of the throwback brand.

The set will showcase Jeter’s iconic cards from his career — with autographs.

The 2017 Topps Archives Derek Jeter Retrospective series will include a basic insert found two per box, short-printed cards found one per case and autographs that will be signed on-card.

The basic set of 21 cards will show a past Topps card (most but not all flagship) and have a silver foil stamp — they will have Blue (/150), Green (/99), Gold (/50), Red (/10) and 1/1 Black parallels.

Three past cards will be short-printed his 1993 Topps Rookie Card, his 2015 Topps card (final card as a player), and the 2007 Topps card, which Topps notes will have “changed” co-stars — not Mickey Mantle and George W. Bush. These will have Green (/99), Gold (/50), Red (/10) and a 1/1 Black.

The autographs will include all 23 cards but not the 2007 card — a surprise alternate card is in the plans there — with a silver foil stamp. These will be limited to five copies, while there also will be a 1/1 Black parallel.

On the retail front, there will be one Retrospective insert per blaster box along with a pack of two Topps coins.
