    2016 Topps Heritage Baseball Hobby Box For Review


    24 packs per box
    9 cards per pack
    Current Retail Price (online): $68-$74

    First and foremost, I'd like to thank our sponsors at Topps for providing us with this box.

    If you're a set collector or a lover of cards that have a vintage theme you will love this product. The stock of the cards as usual have that old time feel like baseball cards from the past. Being a low end product also offers a decent price point for putting a nice set together with quite a few sp cards to give it value compared to most low end sets. The collation is awesome as we only pulled one dupe out of the whole box.
    The rarer parallels offer set collectors of a challenge from easy to downright insane if one wanted to empty a millionaire bank account.

    This year 2016 Topps Heritage Baseball goes back and uses the 1967 Topps set design. The base set consist of 500 cards with the later 75 being short prints. So if you love the design of the original 1967 Topps Set you will love this product. Topps Heritage has four variations to chase that include Throwback Uniforms, Action Images and Color Swaps, and Single-Player Rookie Variations.

    The base set has various parallels:
    Red back parallels for all 500 cards
    Mini (100) - #'d to 100.
    Chrome (100) - #'ed to 999
    Chrome Refractor Parallel - #'d to 567.
    Black-Bordered Chrome Refractor Parallel - #'d to 67
    Gold-Bordered Chrome Parallel - #'d to 5. (Hobby Only)
    Super Refractor #'ed to 1

    Topps Heritage only guarantees one hit in either a relic or autograph. So, one might think that they might want to bypass this product due to only one hit. If someone takes the time to look at the autograph and game used list its quite impressive with current stars and past all stars. Here is a link to the checklist:

    http://www.topps.com/wp/wp-content/u...Checklist1.pdf

    Real One Autographs feature active and retired players along with a Red version limited to 67 copies. There are also dual and triple autographs limited to 25 and five.

    Clubhouse Collection Relics and Flashback Relics also have autographed versions. These are limited to 25 for standard cards and the duals will be limited to 10. Also to be found will be 1/1 Cut Autographs for celebrities as well as notable baseball names from 1967.

    These kind of high reward hits make Topps Heritage a fun break as there so many combination of parallels to score a home run.

    Hey Don. Did you check all of the backs for the gum stain variations ? There's also a bunch of other variations besides the rookie one you posted.

    Cardboard Connection is really good. My dad and I use it all of the time when new product comes out to check for variations & parallels.
