2013 Topps Heritage Baseball Variation Short Prints and Errors Guide

2013 Topps Heritage Baseball Variation Short Prints and Errors Guide

Action Image

Topps Heritage has a knack for bringing out the set collectors. Because a relatively large base set apparently isn't enough, even once you factor in the many regular short prints, every year has a broad mix of variations. The list of 2013 Topps Heritage Baseball variation short prints is large, covering several themes.

The most traditional variants come in the form of Action Image Variations. These cards swap out the base set portraits for a picture with a little more activity. Error Variations come with subtle mistakes that require a close look to spot. Four Washington Nationals are pictured in throwback Washington Senators jerseys. Finally, there are color variations that use different colors in the team names and nameplates.

Below you'll find detailed information on all 2013 Topps Heritage Baseball variation short prints, including detailed checklists and, where possible, image samples. It is worth noting there are also Red and Blue Variations that are not highlighted below (but they can be found on our full checklist). These are available only in Target and Walmart packs and are very distinct due to their colored borders, giving them more of a parallel feel.

  1. Great stuff!!!! Fun to rip and search for variants. You can get a big hit. Out of 4 boxes, got a Stan Musial Red auto, Mike Joyce auto, David Wright Coin card, many variants(Jeter,Hamilton, Strasburg and Sale,a mini, and a black back.

  2. 3b -third basemen ,of instead – of outfield. These are error cards also

  3. Some players on the same team displays. Diferentes ,as position they play .2013 topps heritage baseball .

  4. gregos » There may be other “errors” in the set, but not planned variations like the ones highlighted here. These intentional errors are much rarer versions of regular cards.

  5. Hi, as a former newspaper copy editor and superior proofreader, I just discovered while going through my Heritage Harper variations that Topps has also (mistakenly?) labeled the Bryce Harper permutations with “outfield” or “outfielder”, depending on which one. The base card says “outfield”, and all the other variations EXCEPT the “Pittsburfh” error, say “outfielder.” The codes are different on all but the two versions of the action shot, which share the same code, oddly. Has anybody else noticed this?

  6. Hello,
    I wanted to know if Topps heritage #56 Ross Detwiler card has more than one type of error.I have a card that list the years he played & it lists 2007,2009,2010,2011,&2012. did he not play in 2008?
    also rafael Betancourt 2013 topps heritage card #325 lists 10 yrs. played in the majors. but if you count on the card I have it is 11 years listing from 2003 to 2012 with there being 2 2009′s printed in a row is that an error as well?

  7. The picture on the Franklin Gutierrez card is actually Greg Hallman who was murdered a few years back. This is a huge error!!!

  8. The back of Frank Robinson’s baseball flashback card (BF-FR) says that he came to bat with the bases loaded against Bob Gibson and ripped a three-run walk-off homer. A huge error I would say.

  9. I have a Real One Bobby Richardson autograph with an error. No question on back. Any value? Thanks

  10. Ray » Likely that all are that way, therefore no premium.
