2016 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball CardsBrand: Topps Heritage
Similar to the other Heritage releases of the year, 2016 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball uses the 1967 design as its guide. While the box yield sees a decrease in total cards — and one less autograph — from the previous year, collectors will be thrilled that the hobby-only set now includes hard-signed content.
Mirroring the main 2016 Heritage look, the 200-card base set incorporates League Leaders cards that highlight the statistical standouts from 2015. Parallels include Blue Border, Peach Border (#/25), Black Border (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1). Additional options come in the form of base Short Prints and Variations.
There is also a limited Base Card Mystery Redemption that offers a top 2016 MLB Draft pick in their MiLB uniform.
Promising one autograph per box, 2016 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball has several design options that showcase the on-card signatures. The primary signed set is the Real One Autographs that feature the base design. Blue Border, Peach Border (#/25), Black Border (1/1) parallels add to that. There are also Attributes Autographs that present a comic book theme and Looming Legacy Autographs that utilize a design reminiscent of the 1960s. Both also come as one-of-one Black Border parallels.
On the relic front, 2016 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball also offers one per box. Clubhouse Collection Relics feature game-used memorabilia and are joined by Peach (#/25) and Black Patch (1/1) parallels. Featuring actual 1967 coins, '67 Mint Relics include a nickel while the Peach (#/25) and Black (1/1) parallels substitute a quarter.
Among the traditional inserts are 1967 Topps Stickers that are inspired by the original stickers but are not actually stickers themselves, and Minor Miracles that document unlikely performances.
Giving collectors another thing to shoot for, the "Make Your Pro Debut" promotion returns and allows one lucky winner a chance to suit up for the Durham Bulls minor league team.
