2016 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Cards Box Break and Review

This year’s release of Heritage is based on the cards of 1967 Topps Baseball.  If you collected the base set of this year’s Heritage, more than likely you will want to get in on 2016 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball. This continuation of the first release also works as a stand alone, but seems more in line for return collectors. 

The design was somewhat simple in its mimicry, but is still attractive so these cards look good. The biggest knock would the repetitive nature of the photography, but as an homage set, it works. The Clubhouse Collection relics are a little vanilla but as usual, the on card autos look fantastic.

Here are some of the cards we pulled from our hobby box.
Julio Urias Base, front and back
This late release has the advantage of several team updates.
These purple borders are plentiful and unnumbered.
These variation are more rare at #/567 and #/999 respectively.
On average, there is one of these Action Image variations per hobby box 
Inserts include Rookie Performers, Award Winners...
Now & Then and Combo Cards
This ad panel Box Topper is the most common box topper. Other toppers include 1967 Originals, punchboards, relics and autos.
This was our hit of the box. 

Thanks to Topps for providing this review box.
