Topps Heritage baseball cards came out last week, and I’m pretty happy with this year’s set. We’re up to the 1964 design, which is pretty simple but appealing – at least for the Mets.

I decided to skip buying unopened packs this year and just picked up most of the singles I wanted at the Rahway baseball card show this weekend. With the David Wright shortprint card that I bought from an eBay seller, I have the full Mets team set. I also managed to find a Choo Choo Coleman buyback card and a Pumpsie Green autograph, and I got a pair of boxtopper “advertising strips.”

About Paul

I'm a child of the 1980s who never completely grew up and is still trying to figure things out. I root for the New York Mets, even though that doesn't always reflect well on my judgement, and I've been writing about them and other baseball-related subjects at since 2007.

  1. I just bought a hobby box of this series on-line. Looking forward to seeing what’s in the box! I love Topps Heritage.

    That Pumpsie’s pretty sweet. I imagine you got it at a good price at a show. We don’t have shops or shows, here, and the online prices are way too high. But I did put the team set together via a box and an ebay Wright. Love Heritage. And next year’s the ’65…one of my most favorite designs.

      I did better than the average eBay price for the Pumpsie Green autograph. He wasn’t on my Heritage “shopping list,” but I couldn’t pass it up when I saw the card at the card show. And since my David Wright card came today, I think I’m done with Heritage until next year (unless I run into bargain prices on any of the other Mets autographs.)

    I agree, that Pumpsie is pretty awesome.
