Box Break: 2018 Topps Heritage, Hobby Box 1 of 2

Two Hobby Boxes of2018 Topps Heritage Baseball

I took the plunge. Yes, for the first time since sometime last century, I made a major purchase of a Topps product that was not flagship baseball. Being a low-budget set collector, I’d always ignored all other Topps products. But 1969 is the first year I collected Topps baseball cards and I just could not resist the idea of making a run at collecting at least the first 400 cards of 2018 Topps Heritage, which features today’s players in the 1969 Topps baseball card design. The last few years I’ve made a lot of progress towards completing the ’69 set and my appreciation for the design has only increased. Now I’m only  5 cards away from completing the set. I’m also about halfway to collecting all of the white letter variations and other variations. My ’69 wantlist can be found in the Stadium Trading Block.

So I bought two hobby boxes of Heritage at my local card shop (Hall of Fame Baseball Cards). The plan here is to share each Heritage box in separate posts and then post a separate review afterwards.

Box 1 of this product was a pretty decent box. The Trout variation and Polanco jersey card are especially nice cards. There’s more to follow so stay tuned…
