My birthday was the last week in October. At 45, I am not sure why some people feel the need to get me something other than a card. Both my parents and in-laws slipped some cash in my card, so of course like a little kid I felt the need to spend it right away. I made an impulse buy and bought a newly released hobby box of 2021 Topps Heritage Minors. I have always wanted to bust a box of this, and the price was a lot lower than most current hobby boxes. I did pay a small premium by ordering directly from the Topps website, but the box was delivered in 3 days so I can live with that. My son and I busted the box early last week.
We pulled 6 of the 8 Cardinals from the set. Need to track down Ivan Herrera and the Nolan Gorman short print to complete the base set. I was glad to see we did not receive any duplicates from the box.
Instead of the customary oversized box topper card, Heritage Minors has a 3 pack of these cover cards. Nothing too outstanding about these. I would have preferred another standard pack.
Short print odds are 3 per box. It was great to hit a big name like Witt Jr. Maybe I can flip one of these for the Gorman I need.
We also received the 3 expected Boyhood Photos inserts. I had to do a double take of the Garrett Anderson card when I say the Cardinals uniform.
Each box contains 2 autographs. We did ok pulling a black numbered to 50 and a redemption. Neither one of these guys are big name prospects, but they are both pretty young so that could change in a year or two.
