CARDBOARD REVIEW:2019 Topps Heritage High Number

Well, it's that time of year. Baseball is starting to wind down to the playoff stretch and football season is upon us. This time of year also means some end of the year product releases and some of the series of products closing up such as Topps Heritage. Every year there is a Low Series and a High Series and just recently the High Series made its way on the market once again flashing that 1970's feel.

Let's see how I did in  my break of it,

 Every box of 2019 Topps Heritage High Series baseball comes with 24 packs of 9 cards each. You will find one box topper and one hit, either a memorabilia card or autograph card, per box on average. Boxes currently run just under $100.

My boxloader was a Topps Super Baseball! There is also a Poster Box Loader as well.

Not too shabby of a find in Christian Yelich. He has hit a few baseballs the last few years.

The base cards bring back the 1970's design you found in the first series but with different players this time. There are 225 cards to collect in this round including 25 Sp's.

The base contain both veterans and rookies like Vlad Jr

Once again determining those Sp's will be done by not only the card number itself, but the CMP code at the bottom of the card helps as well.

Here are the CMP. Remember, you just need the last two digits to determine what you have. It's easier than trying to match up cards and seeing if one is or isn't a variation.
  • Base  321
  • Base SP 329
  • French Text 322 or 330
  • Silver Metal 340
  • Error 341
  • Trade  342
  • Throwback 343
  • Action Image 344
  • Team Name Color 345
  • Nickname 346

 These are the base card Sp's. You will find at least 8 per box.

And whoa! Is this a Action Sp? Well, yes, yes it is. And look at the! Best Sp I have ever pulled.

CMP code. Action Sp's fall roughly 1:26 packs.

The cards side by side. Right is the variation.

Let's throw some chrome on these bad boys! Topps Heritage chrome is back again and fall one per box it seems despite the 1:49 odds.

These also have refractor parallels of, Hot Box Purple, Base Refractor /570, Black /69, Gold /5, SuperFractor 1/1.
Mini parallel. Haven't ever seen one of these before. Numbered to 99 and is a tough pull at 1:482 packs.

Cards side by side

 Rookie Performers has 15 cards to collect that fall 1:8 packs

 Award Winners falls 1:8 packs and has 10 cards to collect

 Now and then has 15 cards to collect at 1:8 pack odds

Hammerin' Hank Greatest Hits falls 1:24 packs

And finally, Play Baseball scratch off falls 1:24 packs and has 15 cards to collect.

And as my usual, I pull a relic card which is 9 out of 10 times the case. And for me oddly once again it's Albert Pujols. Why couldn't this have been an auto this time!?

Other hits not found in my box but could be in yours include
  • Real One Autographs
  • Real One Dual Autographs
  • The Hammer’s Greatest Hits Autograph
  • 1970 Cut Signatures including celebrities!
  • Clubhouse Collection Dual Relics
  • Clubhouse Collection Triple Relics
  • Clubhouse Collection Quad Relics
  • Clubhouse Collection Autograph Relics
  • Clubhouse Collection Dual Autograph Relics
OVERALL: Well, as always Heritage is a fun rip to see new guys in old designs. However, if this break didn't have the Action Sp of Vlad that would been a tough swallow of  a relic card for $100. I would like to see a one auto and one memorabilia kinda deal with this product for value wise. Other than that, it was once again a fun rip. Definitely has that aspect and for someone like me who doesn't really collect vintage it's fun to see these designs in hand and come to life. It makes you crave wanting to do some vintage as well and compare.

If you want in on a box break of this product without paying box prices, I suggest Midwest Box Breaks as they pull fire!

Please make sure to take a minute out to thank Topps for providing this box for me to review and to be able to add cards to the giveaway on Twitter I am hosting. Please follow me there to enter @SportCardCollec. Also follow Topps on all social media sites and visit their SITE, as well


  1. As much as I dislike the Topps flagship inserts... I do love this year's Heritage inserts. I'd love to build a set of the Topps Supers, Scratch-offs, and Posters.

  2. You have been getting some great boxes. Keep it going.. I like the card design , has that nostalgic look to it.
