In a world made up largely of hit chasing products, Heritage baseball is decidedly different. Open a box and you may not receive even one autographed card but you’ll definitely hit some nostalgia.
This year’s product design in the long-running shout out to past Topps baseball sets is centered on 1968. Current cards are more shiny, of course, and there are plenty of short-printed inserts, manufactured rarities and photo variations. However, the base cards still rule–even if it is significantly harder to build a complete set with short prints this year.
Sales have been strong enough that prices have ticked up since 2017 Heritage was released at the beginning of the month.
Our resident buster, Mike Fruitman of Mike’s Stadium Sportscards in Aurora, CO, sat down to break open a box–along with a special guest. There was some product insight–and plenty of hijinks.
