The Complete 2012 Topps Heritage Baseball Visual Checklist - Image Swap Variation SP

Yesterday we did a visual checklist for the color swap variations found in 2012 Topps Heritage Baseball.  Today we cover the other type of swap cards, the image swap cards. It should be noted that this type of variation did not occur anywhere in the 1963 Topps Baseball Set.  There are 25 total cards that got the image swap treatment. There are no stated odds for pulling these cards and they are not numbered so there is no way of knowing exactly how many of these exist.  These are extremely easy to spot as you can see from this first example.

On the left is the regular base card #44 of Justin Verlander.  The card on the right is the image swap variation SP.  As you can see the insert photo has been switched with the main player photo, and vice versa. From this point on, we will only display the SP version.

52 - Dustin Pedroia, 56 - Cliff Lee, 91 - Roy Halladay

106 - Tim Lincecum, 183 - Mark Teixeira, 186 - Joe Mauer

193 - Starlin Castro, 197 - Ian Kennedy, 200 - Curtis Granderson

246 - Felix Hernandez, 276 - Ryan Braun, 279 - Matt Kemp

289 - Mariano Rivera, 348 - Miguel Cabrera, 415 - Chris Carpenter

453 - Troy Tulowitzki, 468 - Nelson Cruz, 476 - Prince Fielder

481 - Justin Upton, 483 - Mike Stanton, 486 - Josh Hamilton

489 - Jose Bautista, 494 - Ryan Zimmerman, 497 - Jered Weaver

  1. Thank you for this informative post; I had no idea these were out there. If I stumble into one I'll gladly keep it, but I'm not going out of my way to find it. Novel idea, however...
