2018 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball CardsBrand: Topps Heritage
Round two of the '69 retrospective, 2018 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball shifts the primary focus to rookies and traded players.
The continuation of the main Heritage line again offers one autograph or one relic per Hobby box.
2018 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Base
Starting right from the end of the 2018 Heritage base set, High Number has 225 base cards of its own, which runs from #501 to #725 in the checklist. The final 25 cards are short prints that combine to average 1:3 packs.
Heritage High Number Parallels
Standard parallels return with Black Bordered (50 copies - Hobby), 100th Anniversary Backs (25 copies), Magenta Backs (10 copies), and Flip Stock (5 copies - Hobby). There are also Mini cards, numbered to 100, and Chrome versions. The main chromium edition is numbered, as are the Refractor (#/569), Black (#/69), Gold (#/5) and SuperFractor (1/1) parallels. Chrome Hot Box Refractor parallels are exclusive to Hobby and Value hot boxes.
Heritage High Number Variations
Still not enough? The 2018 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball checklist is again overflowing with SP variations. The short-print docket includes Hobby-only Action Image and Team Name Color variations, plus Errors, Nicknames, Traded, and Throwback Uniform cards.
2018 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Inserts
Inserts are also plentiful in 2018 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball. There's Award Winners for the 2017 standouts, Combo Cards with a related headline for two players, Now & Then, which looks between 2017 and 1969, and a fresh allotment of first-year players in Rookie Performers. In addition, more of the unique die-cut cards come with 1969 Topps Deckle Edge.
New this time around, the Reggie Jackson Highlights insert covers the legend in a Hobby-only insert. Meanwhile, Miracle of '69 is dedicated to the New York Mets.
2018 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Autographs / Relics
Delivering one hit per Hobby box, collectors can count on an on-card autograph or a relic. Signatures come in the Real One Autographs line, which also has red ink Special Edition parallels, numbered to 69. Only found in Hobby boxes, the Real One Dual Autographs (#/25) insert pairs two players from one franchise.
Whereas the main Heritage paid tribute to the Seattle Pilots expansion team, High Number goes with those beloved New Yorkers in the hard-signed Amazin' Mets Autographs (#/69). There are also the Reggie Jackson Highlights Autograph cards (#/5) and 1969 Cut Signatures (1/1) for baseball players and celebrities of the era.
Forming the bulk of the relic choices, the Heritage memorabilia staple, Clubhouse Collection, offers Single, Dual (#/69), Triple (#/25) and Quad (#/10) relic cards. Going up another level are the on-card and Hobby-only Clubhouse Collection Autograph Relics (#/25) and Clubhouse Collection Dual Autograph Relics (#/10). In addition, all CC sets have a Hobby-only Patch (1/1), while the main single-relic insert also comes in Gold (#/99).
