2015 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Variation Guide

2015 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Variation Guide

Checklist

Although variations are available in 2015 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball, the sheer quantity appears to have been decreased in comparison to the main Heritage release. Totaling 40 cards, Color Swap and Action Image cards offer the 2015 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Variations.

Shop for 2015 Heritage High Number Variation Cards on eBay.

There have been sightings of additional unannounced pulls, including Black-and-White and Glossy Backs, but it appears they are just parallels like the Blue Backs or Gum Damage cards and all are listed on the full checklist. Only the Action Image and Color Swap versions are actual variations.

Code Help

The images are the most obvious way to distinguish the variations, but the easiest way for many collectors is to use the code on the back of the card. If you pay close attention to the last two digits, it can be quite helpful. These codes were provided by brentandbecca on Twitter. Also, the Gum Damage and Black & White parallels reportedly have the same code as the base cards.

  • Base - end in 79 or 84
  • Base SP (#701-725) - end in 89
  • Action Image - end in 94
  • Color Swap - end in 95

Action Image

Action Image variations are fairly simple to spot given the obvious image difference from the base set. Whereas the base cards generally include a posed shot from the waist up, more of the player is revealed in the variation and each subject is usually shown actively hitting or throwing. They average 1:22 hobby packs.

Color Swap

Definitely a little more subtle, the Color Swap cards simply change the text and background colors for the diagonal banner in the top corner and the larger one at the bottom of the card. These are easier to miss, so be sure to check the code. However, the black color used in the variation is a dead giveaway. The Color Swaps are a little more rare at 1:76 hobby packs.

  1. Found a card with a glossy back. It is noticeable. The card I have is #680. It still has the base number code ending in 79.

  2. Joe Cardello, Tim Thanks for letting us know! Both the Glossy Back and Mini cards are parallels, not variations. The Glossy Back is referenced above and both are listed on the main checklist for the set. Congrats on your pulls! https://www.cardboardconnection.com/2015-topps-heritage-high-number-baseball

  3. Hello, this page asks if there are any variations not mentioned. I found a mini of Melvin Upton Jr numbered 14/100. Not sure if this is any help at all but its something I didn’t see on the page.
