My mini vacation and the Easter weekend did not let me catch up on trade posts. I have 6 or 7 stacks of cards to scan, file away, and write about. All of them are from trades made on Trading Card Database. Today's post has a strong Heritage flavor.
2004 Bowman Heritage is not the best looking set in my book. The TV screen does nothing for me.
I like the clean look of 2005 Bowman Heritage a lot better.
I forgot to scan a regular 2005 Topps Heritage back to compare to these white back variations. These can be a set collector's nightmare to try to spot. I would not be surprised to find one or two when I file these away in my team box.
My favorite Heritage card of the package is this 2017 card. When I first saw the burlap design I was not that enthused, but these cards look great in hand.
There was about 15 of these 2004 Topps First Edition cards. The Tomko is my favorite. I like any photo that captures a ball right after it has been thrown or hit.
I am not too crazy about all the buybacks Topps has been doing the past few years, but I am a fan of the 1987 set. If I get bored I may try to make a 1987 buyback team set.
