User Comments

  1. I ZOOMED IN ON YOUR CARD #526 TO
    SEE “JIM HUNTER’, THE ‘ADDED THIRD NAME. TRY THAT THIRD NAME
    AGAIN, IT IS PRINTED , “TIM” HUNTER.

  2. You missed two uncorrected errors from the 1965 set. Cleveland Indians manager Birdie Tebbetts’s name is spelled wrong on the back of his card (Tebbets).

    On the back of the Cincinnati Reds team card, Cincinnati is listed as one of the team’s opponents, instead of the Chicago Cubs.

  3. In the original 1965 set, the Phillies cap in the Phillies logo on Gus Triandos’s card (#248) wasn’t properly colored red — it was the same yellow as the background in the rest of the logo. However, in this year’s Heritage set, #248 is assigned to Pete Kozma of the Cardinals. Therefore, it’s possible that Topps could mess up the logo coloring on some other Phillies card this year, though it’s just as likely that Kozma’s card will bear the lack of proper coloring, should Topps choose to replicate that particular error with a variation card.

  4. Here is McCutchen’s , this is my ebay auction …..

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/271425704012?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

  5. Card King » Thanks and congrats!

  6. Not sure if it’s supposed to be an error but Joe Girardi’s card says “Three AL East division crown” instead of crowns. Its card 131 by the way

  7. i got a bryce harper regukar blue back card and a black and white back card

  8. the cards for kevin Gregg and ricky nolasco show action pics but not listed,they are not posed face shots like all others in set. adam eaton has throwback jersey but also not listed here help?

  9. kurt » Those appear to be the base cards despite fitting the variation themes.

  10. the action variation images are the best, if these cards were the regular base cards I would more likely buy a box….

  11. Can anyone confirm if the girardi card is an error?

  12. Andrew » Not sure. If you check the code on the back (shown in the first tab), it should confirm an error variation or an unintentional typo.

  13. This code info sure made it easy to find my variations. Thanks!

    I bought 2 hobby boxes and here are my variations by code:

    17 – Code 7123 High Number (one Tulowitzki #487 had a black back)

    2 – Code 7126 Action Variations

    1 – Code 7127 Logo Variation

    DOES THIS LINE UP WITH THE STATED ODDS FOR THIS PRODUCT??

  14. I have 2 # 137 one is Anthony Gosr and the other is 2013 World Series game 6

  15. Sorry…it was Anthony Gose

  16. Found same 137. One of Gose, one ws6? Why?

  17. Derek » Looks like uncorrected error (not intentional, not variation).

  18. Derek…..don’t know which one is legit but something is messed up.

  19. Hi I found a card the other day that seems to definitely be a error & just wanted to c if anybody has heard anything about these cards but it is a then & now insert of Willie McCovey & Joey votto but this card has a white blank back with nothing on it……Has anybody heard anything about these?…….thanks

  20. Joshua » Sounds like a printing error. It happens from time to time.

  21. any info on a Johnny Bench first draft #JB2?

  22. mike » It’s an insert. The full Heritage checklist can be seen here: http://www.cardboardconnection.com/2014-topps-heritage-baseball-cards

  23. I pulled card # 4 and it’s code number reads 7116 what does this code mean?

  24. Rick » Not sure, but it’s not a variation.

  25. What is a high number variation and how is it different from the base card?

  26. Paul K » Cards #425-500 of the base set are short prints, meaning there are fewer copies.

  27. The variations in this set are what I love. Got a puig action in latest box and a miggy logo variation in my last. The on card autos are very nice. Relic cards are weak, as usual. Who wants a half inch piece of jersey from from “no specific game”? FWIW, I have NEVER got a mini heritage card. I’ve been collecting for years. I wonder if this due to an uneven allocation distributor/dealer, or source?

    Overall, a good set, hits are really hard to come by this year, not a bad thing.

  28. Good Day Ryan!
    Thanks for the best breakdown and review ANYWHERE! I’m going through my Heritage right now and this has been the best breakdown to find the sp & Error Cards! Thanks again for doing what you do!

  29. How to Easily Spot 2014 Topps Heritage Baseball Variations

    It would be nice if they could make the lettering a LITTLE larger…How to Easily Spot 2014 Topps Heritage Baseball Variations …Codes are impossible to read. And NO I’m not 80 yrs old and NO I have goo vision..between color and font size..very difficult

  30. I believe 7139 may be the Target red code, I have one of those.

  31. I got a Dave Vineyard ROA in red. His weight on the back is 1495lb. Code doesn’t match up to an error though. Any ideas?

  32. Josh » It sounds like it’s definitely an error, but not an intentional variation.

  33. Have two items for you. First is a Xander Bogaerts/Jonathan Schoops #49 Rookie Card that’s a Chrome Refractor #222 of 565. The back of the card doesn’t have the “THC” designation within the small baseball and doesn’t have the word “refractor” underneath it like the other chrome refractors I have. Second is a Mark Trumbo #442 Chrome that has an Angels logo and Angels commentary on the back. The regular card I have has the exact same photo but a Rangers logo and Rangers commentary on the back. The info you provide is terrific!

  34. What is the breakdown for a Black Back? I cant find much information on them.

  35. Dan S » They are a parallel – 1:444 hobby packs

  36. Same for retail?

  37. Dan S » Not sure.

  38. Thanks Ryan for your replies and your website in-depth information

  39. Noticed Prince Fielder and Ian Kinsler with last year teams’ Tigers and Rangers respectively have code 7134. Base card has them in new team uniform.

  40. Back collecting after 40 years. Does anyone have suggestions about getting the rares, other than Ebay or continuing to buy hobby and blaster boxes? Will I have better luck with the retail packs or three plus rare packs? Anyone want to trade?
