2012 Topps Heritage

Set Type: Primary
Card dimensions:
2½” x 3½”
Full Parallel: Blank Backs, serial numbered “1/1” on back of card. Topps distributed the Blank Back parallels exclusively on eBay via The Topps Vault and only issued them for the base (non-SP variation) versions of the cards.
Partial Parallels: Black Border; Chrome; Black Chrome Refractors; Chrome Refractors. Additional information given below Primary checklist.
Inserts: 1963 Buybacks; Clubhouse Collection Game-Used Memorabilia Relics; Framed 1963 Peel-Offs Buybacks; Image Swap Relics; New Age Performers; Peel-Offs; Real One Autographs; Then and Now.
Additional Information: As a gimmick, Topps purposefully included variations of many of the cards in the set. Unfortunately, only one of them — the “1962 Rookie Stars” variation of card #29 — actually has any sort of historical basis in the 1963 Topps set that this edition of Topps Heritage recycles.

#56[a] & #56[b], Cliff Lee; Image Swap Variation on right

#296[b], Jim Thome Blue Border Variation & #221[b] Chase Utley Red Border Variation; Blue Border Variations were exclusive to Wal Mart stores and the Red Border Variations were exclusive to Target stores

For further commentary on this set, see the March 19, 2012 post on 14,000 Phillies.

Heritage Partial Parallels
Topps selected 100 cards from the Heritage set for inclusion as partial parallels. All Chrome cards bear a serial number on the back, with regular Chrome parallels numbered to 1963, Chrome Refractors to 563 and Black Chrome Refractors to 63. Topps also issued a non-chrome Black Border parallel that was distributed in specially-marked blister packs containing three packs of Topps Heritage. The Black Border cards are not serial-numbered. The checklist for all four partial parallel sets is identical.
