I'm actually not crazy about it this year. Some of those big hits look nice, but isn't that their intention. :P

They don't waste any time do they? Looks pretty nice. I wish there was one guaranteed something or other in each hobby box. Seems fun though.

Every year I see heritage and every year I wonder why I never collect/bust any of it

The '65 design is one of my favorites. So safe to say that I cannot wait to build this set!!

I wish they would AT LEAST make it 2 relics a box, then the price would almost be worth it.

I like the look but not as much as last year. Loved that look last year and wish I could have done some cases. I'm trying to get myself out of breaking and focus on prospecting and PC but maybe Ill try some next year as I've never opened Heritage.

65 is awesome... The designs really go downhill for a few years after that. They make a bit of a comeback in 68-77, though.

That said, I can't wait to run break a case of it in March again!

Always a fun product, but the way the seed the SP's makes it to expensive to complete by buying wax. So as usual, I will not be buying wax, and instead completing my set using Ebay, which while much cheaper, is nowhere near as much fun.

I will enjoy building next year's set quite a bit, but after that I wish we could fast-forward to 1971.

Had it been more of a known prospect, such as Pierce Johnson or C.J. Edwards.....

And putting Willie Mays in the autograph checklist is just a big tease....he hasn't even signed his Heritage autos from this year yet!

I bought Pro Debut this year because I liked the '13 design and wanted to see the minor league logos on it. It didn't work out that well in my opinion. Major League logos are iconic and too the point and designed to look good from far away and on TV. Minor league logos are fun, but are frequently very busy designs that don't translate to cards nearly as well.

All that said, I'll check out some '14 MiLB Heritage a little over a year from now anyway. Should make for some neat '65s.

I believe the Beckett article states one relic or auto per box

Looking forward to this set. 66 & 67 coming up are rough years design wise IMHO. But this is another solid design...excluding the crazy inserts that shouldn't be there. Gilligan, coins, stamps, etc. dislike 2010, 2011 and 2012. Especially the Yankees autos for those years.
