Notes on 2014 Topps Heritage

on March 15th, 2014 by Ben Henry

I opened three boxes of Heritage yesterday, and here are my thoughts:

• The card stock is so much better this year than last year. A major improvement. They feel like real baseball cards, not like promotional post cards you get in the mail (see Heritage, 2013).
• A (probably) uncorrected error: There are two cards numbered 137, World Series Game 6 and Anthony Gose. From what I’ve found, there is no card numbered 138, though it should be Gose.
• Many packs I opened didn’t have an insert or a high number or variation, but nine base cards. I like that. It puts emphasis on building the base set, rather than ripping for hits.
• There are supposed to be one relic or autographed card per box. In my three boxes I found three Clubhouse Collection jersey relics (Jose Altuve, Howie Kendrick, Fred McGriff) and one autograph (Chipper Jones). Not sure why that is.
• Box toppers: two advertising panels (which I will soon chop up and put in my set) and one original 1965 buyback (Jack Lamabe)
• I am really confused by the Photoshopped backgrounds for some of the recently traded players. What, the lasers backdrop wasn’t available?
• The “1st Draft” insert set is lousy. Of the four cards in the set, two of them are of Johnny Bench. So far I’ve found only one of the two Benches, and Graig Nettles. Nothing against these players, but I’ve found three of each. No Ryans, and no other Benches.
• Going in, my thinking had been that all the variations (logo, action, uniform) would be dumb, and get in the way of collecting the base set. Not true. They’re nice additions.
• I’ve completed about 90% of the base set, with 26 high-number SPs.
• It’s interesting that Curtis Granderson is a Yankee in the Chrome insert set and a Met in the regular set. Maybe the Chrome cards went to print earlier?
• Last thing: This year’s Heritage has got me thinking back to 2003′s Upper Deck Vintage set, also in the 1965 Topps design. Which set is better? It’s a toss-up.

Possible "Errors" in 2014 Topps Heritage

on March 10th, 2014 by Ben Henry

So it’s been reported that 2014 Topps Heritage will pay tribute to the various errors and uncorrected errors found in the 1965 Topps set. Perhaps the most well known uncorrected error is the misspelling of Jim Kaat’s name on the front of his card (Jim Katt). 

Here are a few players I’d like to see as candidates:
Jake Peevy
Matt Holiday
Anthony Goose
Justin Smoke
Jarrod Saltalamacchiado
Ryan Dumpster
Zach Mozart
Adam Laloosh
Yu Dervish
Jacoby Smellsbury
Eva Longoria 
Robinson Camo 
and, of course, 
Shin-Soo Choo Choo Coleman
Some lesser-known uncorrected errors that probably won’t be in the new set: 
• Cleveland Indians’ manager Birdie Tebbetts’ last name misspelled on the back of his card (Tebbets). Terry Francoa, anyone?
• Kansas City A’s rookie Jim Hunter’s first name misspelled on the back of his card (Tim). Maybe Baddy Boshers (LA Angels rookie, card #194)?
• Cincinnati Reds listed on back of Reds team card as foe during 1964 season (instead of Chicago Cubs). This one definitely won’t be reprised in this year’s Heritage set since team cards weren’t included.

Ben’s First 5 Thoughts on the 2014 Topps Heritage Checklist

on March 8th, 2014 by Ben Henry

In anticipation of the release of 2014 Topps Heritage (now since delayed to March 14th), Topps made the set’s checklist available on their website. Because I enjoy deconstructing checklists in my free time, here are my first five thoughts:

1. It’s weird to me that Topps didn’t follow their own checklist from the original 1965 set. In the original, the reigning NL MVP (Ken Boyer of the Cardinals) was put on card #100, and the reigning AL MVP (Brooks Robinson of the Orioles) was put on #150. Instead, the Heritage checklister went the straight team-to-team route, assigning #100 to Cardinal pitcher Adam Wainwright and #150 to the Orioles’ current third baseman, Manny Machado. If they had followed the script of the original, reigning NL MVP Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates would be #100 and Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers would be on #150.

By deviating from the original, the meaning of the set changes. It’s no longer a retelling of the original 1965 set, but rather an ode to the idea of the 1965 set. This is especially weird considering…

2. Topps has hinted that there will be base-set errors and variations in the spirit of the original set. What’s especially odd about that is that two of the most well known variations in the original are on checklist cards themselves. Checklist cards aren’t even assigned checklist numbers in the Heritage base set, so I’m guessing that these variations won’t be included in the new set.

3. There are no team cards, and only 17 managers are represented. Also, teams are not represented equally. The Cardinals clock in with 19 individual cards (18 players plus manager Mike Matheny). On the other side of the spectrum, the Astros have 10 players and no manager. The highest-numbered Astro is Dexter Fowler at #394, which means there are no Astros in nearly a quarter of the set, including the desirable on-checklist chase SPs.

4. The high-numbered on-checklist SPs (#426–#500) are all big-name players, including Miguel Cabrera, David Ortiz, Derek Jeter, and Yasiel Puig. As far as Topps went to deviate from the original 1965 set, they went even further away from the spirit of previous Heritage sets with this move. Honestly, I’d be surprised if future Heritage sets don’t go the full Allen & Ginter rip-card route for the final 75 cards.

5. Finally, when did the idea of the “Real One” autograph subjects list change to include retired players not represented in the original set? Around 10 years ago, when the Heritage brand was a fresh idea, the autograph checklist was made up of players from the original set from that year, with only two or three current players. But guys like Bo Jackson? Bret Saberhagen? Rafael Palmeiro? Dave Concepcion? Isn’t this why Topps rebooted Topps Archives? These players should not be all together in a Heritage set until the year 2036, for Topps Heritage ’87. (I almost forgot: not one but two different Keith Olbermanns…. Sheesh.)

Beckett 20 Questions on … collecting vintage

2014 Topps Heritage Checklist Hypotheses

on February 12th, 2014 by Ben Henry

One of my favorite things to do is put together checklists for custom sets. A checklist I’ve been

trying to figure out—before Topps announces it in the next few weeks—is that of 2014 Topps Heritage.

From on-checklist in-jokes to creative checklisting decisions, Heritage proves interesting on an annual basis. And as I’ve gotten back into collecting new cards, it’s usually my favorite set of the year. 2014′s offering is especially fun, as it will undoubtedly celebrate the 2013 Boston Red Sox. Plus, its basis (1965 Topps) is one of the few vintage sets I’ve completed. Needless to say, I’m ready to complete the master set and pair it with my ’65 set.

So as I put together my Heritage checklist, a few questions arise. First and foremost, how many cards will Topps allot to each team? I see this resolving in one of two ways:

• Each team gets 16 cards (including a manager card, a team card, and one doubleheader rookie card)

This option allows for 390 individual player cards, 30 managers, 30 team cards, 30 doubleheader rookie cards, leaving 20 “free” cards, 12 of which are league leaders, at least 6 are World Series, and probably the final 2 are “MLB Rookies” or AL or NL–specific doubleheader rookies.

• The teams original to 1965 Topps (Yankees, Orioles, A’s, Angels, Twins, Rangers (Senators), Twins, Red Sox, White Sox, Tigers, Indians, Reds, Cubs, Mets, Dodgers, Giants, Pirates, Phillies, Braves, Astros, and Cardinals) will get more cards than those teams that post-date the original set (Royals, Padres, Nationals, Brewers, Rockies, Marlins, Rays, Mariners, Nationals, Diamondbacks, Blue Jays)

In this second option, only those teams original to 1965 Topps would get team and manager cards, and only a manager card if that team had a manager in the original set.

Either way, I don’t see Topps including actual checklist cards on its Heritage checklist, and instead including four different checklists randomly as pack loaders. The checklist space is too limited, and the pack value is too high to waste a card slot on a checklist.

Second: League leaders will be on #1–12. World Series cards will be on #132–138. But which players will be assigned the iconic numbers from the original set? There are only a few guarantees, I think. Here they are:

#100 – Andrew McCutchen (2013 NL MVP)
#140 – Max Scherzer (2013 AL CY)
#150 – Miguel Cabrera (2013 AL MVP)
#300 – Clayton Kershaw (2013 NL CY)
#340 – Wil Myers (2013 AL ROY)
#460 – Jose Fernandez (2013 NL ROY)

It gets murky once you’re beyond the award winners. Here are a few more guesses:

#350 – Derek Jeter
#200 – Bryce Harper
#400 – Mike Trout
#500 – David Ortiz

Here are my guesses for the titles of each World Series subset card:

132 Sox Crush Cards to Take Series Opener WS Game 1
133 Wacha Carries Cards to Victory WS Game 2
134 Cards Win in Wild Finish WS Game 3
135 Sox Tie Series on Gomes’ HR WS Game 4
136 Lester Wins Pitchers’ Duel WS Game 5
137 Victorino Powers Sox to Title WS Game 6
138 The Champs Celebrate at Fenway WS Summary

Another big question will be if Topps will put Yasiel Puig on a base-checklist SP number (somewhere between #426–500) or will have him floating on the regular checklist. He’s the hottest name in the hobby going into 2014, and making him a base-checklist SP adds to the chase, though also makes it at least four times less likely that you’ll get him in a pack.
Finally, it’s a pity that the Japan/MLB posting system had to go through an overhaul prior to Tanaka immigrating to the MLB, because this set probably won’t include his Yankee rookie. It would’ve been something special, as one of the cards the 1965 set is known for is the Masanori Murakami rookie, and I’m sure Topps would’ve found a way to honor that card. So, without a significant rookie like Tanaka, will Heritage include the new White Sox first baseman, Jose Abreu? I hope so.
