User Reviews

  1. There really was not a short printed high number series in 1973. I hope Topps was going to end this year.

  2. The original 1973 Topps had 2 series, the 1st was cards 1 thru 528, the 2nd was cards from 529 thru 660. The 2nd was hard to find that year. 2022 heritage should be easy to copy, as long as they don’t use bright yellow on white border & they keep same font size for the player stats like Topps did in 73. That was a big disappointment with 72 heritage on the stats.
