Topps Heritage sets are some of our favorite modern baseball cards here at DeansCards.com, so we wanted to give a quick preview for the 2011 Topps Heritage baseball card set. The singles will be available on DeansCards.com in the first week of February. The 60th Anniversary theme that was so heavily emphasized in the 2011 Topps set is not emphasized in this set. Instead, Topps focuses more on the 1962 Topps baseball card set and how it relates to the 2011 Topps Heritage set.
2011 Topps Heritage base set will consist of 500 total cards that have the same template as the 1962 Topps set. The distinctive wood-grain border makes these cards stand out from previous Heritage sets. There will be 6 World Series highlights, 11 combinations, 4 league leaders, 24 Sporting News All-Stars, 18 team cards, 8 rookie parades, and 9 in action shots. There will be 75 high number short prints.
1962, in this set. As expected, there will be numerous autograph and relic cards, as well as inserts like New Age Performers and Flashbacks.
In the hobby boxes, Topps decided to include box loaders, which consist of Baseball Bucks, advertising panels, stamp albums, and 1962 original cards. Baseball Bucks are a new idea that puts baseball players on currency of different denominations.
