I picked up my first few packs of this year's Heritage today. I didn't pull anything too exciting, but I like the look of the cards. The set is based on the '63 Topps this year, which is much more colorful than last year's ('62 Topps) offering. I like the action photo bubble at the bottom of each card, especially since it seems like most modern day sets lack multiple photos on each card.
I usually don't care for non-baseball cards in these sets, but I was pleased to find an insert card of Alcatraz. If you haven't checked out the TV show of the same name, do it. Sam Neil plays a similar role to his character in Jurassic Park, except instead of dinosaurs, he's dealing with the Rock's most notorious criminals coming back from the dead (sorta).
I bought five packs of Heritage ($3.50 per pack), and these were the notable cards I pulled:
- Frank Francisco- Short print base card
- Alcatraz- '63 News Flashbacks
- Dustin Pedroia- Chrome Parallel #1744/1963
- Ryan Howard- Chrome Refractor Parallel #140/563
