With all the hulabaloo lately over National Chicle, I thought I would look ahead to one of the sets that got me back into collecting 2 years ago... Heritage.
The 2010 version will feature the 1961 design. A plain, rather boring design in card history. 3 boxes, player image, player name and position, and team name. Simple - boring. Topps really let the player image do the talking for this set. The vertical card layout is the way I like cards. It makes for easy flipping through. 2009 Heritage lost me with the horizontal design.
It's the back of the card that makes it great. A 3 panel comic strip of information. Stats galore. "Bill won the 1960 World Series with his home run". Awesome! What might a 2010 back look like? "Alexi Casilla slaps a hit to finish off the Tigers in game 163". The horror.
It's a wonder any cards end up in our collections
