Topps continues to pay homage to its 1966 design in its 2015 Topps Heritage Minors, with a scheduled release date of September 18. Minor League Baseball stars will be showcased in many of the thematic elements featured in the big league Heritage set for 2015, such as Real One Autographs and Clubhouse Collection Relics.
A full checklist for 2015 Heritage Minors is below.
New to this year’s product is the Minor Miracles insert set, highlighting the most miraculous performances of the 2014 Minor League season and Looming Legacy Autographs, a throwback card featuring signatures of players who went on to become big league stars.
There will again be 24 packs per hobby box with nine cards per pack. Expect box prices in the $65-75 range upon release with two autographs and one relic card in each.
Autograph parallels will include sequentially numbered blue, orange (# to 25), black (1/1) and printing plates (1/1).
The Looming Legacy cards will also have 1/1 black border parallels and printing plates.
Road to the Show insert cards will showcase the road that Minor League Baseball stars will travel on their path to the big leagues.
The 2014 Topps Heritage Minors base set will consist of 200 cards including 25 that are short prints, with unnumbered blue-bordered parallels, the gum/wax damage parallel we saw in the 2015 Topp Heritage MLB edition, orange numbered to 25, black (1 of 1) and printing plates (1/1).
The Make Your Pro Debut contest promotion returns for a fourth year with the grand prize winner of an essay contest receiving a locker in a minor league team clubhouse with uniform and equipment, participation in pre-game warm-ups and batting practice, presentation of the lineup card at home plate and a chance to toss out the first pitch in a game.
