No, this is not Series 3 of Heritage, it's 2018 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball! The Hobby-only set covers some of the top MiLB names hoping to make the jump to MLB stardom.
Although matching many of the designs found in 2018 Heritage and Heritage High Number, 2018 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball switches the focus to the up-and-coming prospects. Each box contains one autograph and one relic.
There are also two chances per box to win the Make Your Pro Debut promotion that awards a collector a one-day contract with the Richmond Flying Squirrels, and a card in 2019 Topps Pro Debut Baseball.
2018 Topps Heritage Minor League Base / Variations / Inserts
Like the other Heritage releases in 2018, the 200-card base set in 2018 Heritage MiLB honors the 1969 Topps design. This includes League Leaders and The Topps News Minor League All-Stars subsets.
Giving set collectors a little more of a challenge, the 2018 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball checklist even offers base Short Prints and Image Variations.
Low-numbered parallels consist of Blue Border (#/99), Black Border (#/50), Team Name Color Change (#/25) and Red Border (1/1). In addition, there are Gloss Front parallels found in the three-card Blue Cello Pack box toppers. Each box has one topper pack.
Maintaining the '69 style, 2018 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball also features 1969 Collector Cards and die-cut 1969 Topps Deckle Edge inserts.
2018 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball Autographs / Relics
Displaying on-card signatures, the 2018 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball autographs fall one per box. The main choice is the Real One Autographs line with Blue Border (#/99), Black Border (#/50), Team Name Color Change (#/25) and Red Border (1/1) parallels.
Additional signed choices include all-new base Image Variation Autographs (#/50), Bazooka Autographs (#/50) and Dual Autographs (#/20). Numbered to 99 copies, the 1969 Topps Deckle Edge Autographs set is issued in the primary black-and-white version and in a Color Image parallel that has just 25 copies.
Similarly, memorabilia cards come one per box in 2018 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball. The Clubhouse Collection relics contain game-used pieces with limited Blue (#/99), Black (#/50), Orange Patch (#/25) and Red Patch (1/1) parallels.
Featuring an embedded coin from 1969, the '69 Mint insert also works with Black Quarter (#/50), Red Quarter (1/1) and Auto Relic (#/10) editions.
