2015 Topps Heritage Minors Box Break - Part 1 - Packs 1 through 6
I didn't bother with regular Heritage this past season, but since I've been a fan of the Minor League product since I returned to collecting, I had to pick up a box and build the non-SP base set. This has 24 packs with 9 cards each. 1 card is either an insert (hits and otherwise), a parallel, a short print or the contest entry card and the remainder are standard base cards.
This will be the only pack that I show entire contents of the pack. It's what you expect if you've picked up any of the MLB Heritage. It is nice to start off with a pair of Mets in the first pack. The Matz is even nicer.
It is the gum damaged parallel! These fall 1 in 17, so I might have one more awaiting me in this. Getting a parallel for my PC in the first pack? What a great start!
The big highlight for me in this is the minor league logos throughout the set. In addition, there is a bunting photo as well in this pack. As I worked my way through the packs, there did seem to be many more in-game photos as opposed to the standard posed photos. The Minor Miracles inserts fall at a rate of 1 per 8 packs.
Another Mets card, and a couple more great minor league logos. This one included a contest entry card. These fell at 1:12, but I only got one instead of the expected two.
Here's the other insert set in the set. Last year they used an actual road through the motif, this year it is street signs. The Reid-Foley in the first Blue Jays card in this break. Plus, the Charlotte Stone Crabs logo is another one worth scanning and showing.
The Crawford is a short-print. They're 1 in 6. Two more Blue Jays are on either side of it. The Daytona Tortugas is another great minor-league logo. They were the Daytona Cubs until this past season when they changed affiliation to the Reds. The Tincaps one is pretty nice to show off as well.
No hits so far, but another insert shows up. As a Simspons semi-addict, I did have to show what does seem to be my first Albuquerque Isotopes card. Two more great minor league logos and an alternate camo uniform as well.
That's 1/4 of the box. I still have two autos, a relic, and a trio of blue parallels that I was due that need to make an appearance. Some of them should show up tomorrow.
