I finally pulled one.
My first pack pulled Bryce Harper. Sure it’s in vogue to claim he is all hype and overrated, blah blah blah. Truth is he had solid season in the minors and has amazing potential at the plate. It pictures him with the Harrisburg Senators; I hope he gets a card once he makes it to the Potomac Nationals. Before we had the Nationals in DC my wife and I used to go to Potomac games back when they were called the Canons.
The 1962 design is really cool. Something about it lends it’s self to minor leaguers.
I got my box on ebay for less than $40 so I figured it was worth a go.
Similar to the regular Heritage they have tinted parallel cards. The green and blue are OK, but the red, well see for yourself.
It’s a little much. I would go as far as to call these washed versus tinted. They are numbered, so I am sure they will be moderately popular. Folks love numbered cards.
I got a good number of Twins guys, so that was cool. Man I have been posting about the Twins a lot lately.
Aaron Hicks doesn’t have very many cards; he is one of the ’08 draft picks that signed with Razor so he has yet to get the Bowman prospect treatment. He has struggled a bit in the minors but I still have hope. Sano looks cool in his red Twins jersey. I am a fan of both cards. I like that Topps gave the photos a little work-over to look a little older to go with the Heritage look.
It’s hobby only, so no blasters, but a hobby box for the price of two blasters is a hard to pass up.
