What’s Buzz-worthy: This one’s all about some short-printed Rookie Cards and some much shorter-printed ink go big names as the Heritage High Number autograph checklist is absolutely loaded. In this particular box there were a few RCs of note beyond the rookies found on the Chromes and SPs — Willson Contreras, Albert Almora and Michael Fulmer to name a few. (You can see more RCs in our past hobby box Buzz Break here.) The basic set is relatively dry but it’s still Heritage — so that means it’s getting ripped even rough it’s cheap. If you have luck on your side, it’s worth tearing into a hobby box of this one. Want more Heritage? There’s more coming before this 12 in 12 is over.
