well 2013 heritage and 2013 minor league are around 40 a box, so I would say that is worth it for one GU/auto per box.

This is always a fun product to bust. It probably isn't worth what dealers are asking for, but hey it still is fun and if you pull something nice it is REALLY nice.

I love the 66 design. 67 is ok, but repeating it in the 69 set was dumb.

2013 Topps (MLB) Heritage is not $40 per box nor has it been. It really held pretty tough in a terrible year for baseball wax. Even 2012 Topps (MLB) Heritage did not quite get as low as $40 per box and that stuff was soft as Louie Anderson.

I will take a case of those 2013 Heritage you're selling at $40 per box.

Thanks!

I can't believe all the people dogging the 1967 Topps design. It is a classic. 1965 is one of best.

66 onward for many years, the logo is absent from the card in the original topps series. And while 65 starts to get edgy with a pennant and logo. 66 & 67 go linear and bare bones. 68-70 still doesn't see a logo, but they at least dress up the card some. Really looking forward to 65 heritage throwback!

Purple Refractor Boxes, Mini's #'d to 100 and more Real One Autographs per case helped 2013 considerably versus 2012.

Personally against in person or TTM autos for topps heritage. My ebay search for real one topps heritage autos is jammed with this type of riff raff (particularly the guy that writes SHARP)…and I can't simply include real one in the search because some knuckle heads don't put that in their description. If you like your IP or TTM autos, then keep them.

Some do it for a hobby, some do it for extra spending money. Everyone has trouble with whatever they search on eBay with things they don't want popping up in their searches. Sounds like you should be more upset with sellers not listing their cards correctly. Heritage is perfect for TTM and IP

I love Bo Jackson and Eric the Red but they never played in that time frame and aren't current players. This is not the release to have them sign on-card for.

Looks like times are a changing. Honestly, there isn't one person who works at topps that remembers the early years of heritage.

Said the same thing about Don Mattingly showing up in the checklist. Happy to have a heritage auto, but quite out of character for the set. Although, much better than putting in a Johnny James, Cerv or Clevenger…the dark years of heritage. Topps went with the last card auto insertion and missed out on having Turley & Richardson sign for several years. I really don't understand why we can't get more current stars' ROA instead of retired sigs outside of the heritage timeline. Why not a Mariano Rivera, Teixeira, Davis (don't believe he's on the list) etc.

Topps did cut a few corners for a while. One year the average playing time of a great deal of the autograph subjects was 2 days. It just isn't fun pulling an autograph case hit of a guy who pitched 4 innings total his entire career.

Heritage is about learning about the past. Some of these guys are cool. I like to hear stories about guys who actually were kids when the 65 set came out.

I'm planning to pick up a case this year. Wish I had done it sooner.

Mattingly and O'Neill autos will be cool to hit.

Then wait for 71 and then 75!

Well said! All these years of Heritage, I felt like I was actually living through the original years between flashbacks, then and now, chase, real one stats on the back, etc. In fact, I learned a lot about the greats of the game and notable moments of all teams, that I never would've had it not been for Heritage.
