A run of Topps Heritage near master sets — in this case every single card in the product — for the first decade of the popular brand as well as a pair of autograph proof sheets featuring cards that were never produced have hit the auction block via Robert Edward Auctions.
The run begins with the first Heritage set from 2001 — a product among a few celebrating the company’s 50th anniversary that year, and one that offered us a re-do of the iconic 1952 Topps set but with today’s stars and nods to the past — and runs to 2011 when Heritage hit the memorable wood-bordered 1962 Topps design.
