The 2015 Topps Heritage ’51 baseball card set is a newcomer to the Heritage lineup and it’s a brand with its non-traditional gaming-style backs that, admittedly, might not appeal to everyone.
But it’s those card backs — at least on the mini parallels — that might make those sets a bit more appealing to those considering opening a set for breaking and resale.
The newest Topps WWE cards arrived on Friday with a crop of new signers and some surprises in 2015 Topps Heritage that we’ve already covered here on The Buzz.
But now the real potential surprises can be seen.
You know, seeing those first-time autographs on the secondary market for the first time — the kinds of moments that generate can just as much excitement for collectors as WrestleMania but without ringside seats (or any Michael Cole commentary).
Collectors who busted into boxes of the 2015 Topps Heritage ’51 set when it arrived last week found one autographed card per set with an assortment of some of the biggest young names in MLB today also inside.
Now, Topps is making the release (but not the autographs) even bigger.
They’re new players and you may already have their new baseball cards but not even know it.
Topps announced on Thursday that top draft picks Dansby Swanson and Brendan Rodgers are the mystery redemptions found in packs of 2015 Topps Heritage Minor League, the set that takes today’s players down on the farm back to 1966.
Arriving in hobby shops today is a new brand in the Topps Heritage line — a release where the company commemorates the 65th anniversary of its first baseball card set.
It’s 2015 Topps Heritage ’51 Collection, which is a boxed set of 104 cards created in the style of the company’s simple 1951 release with every set including 21 parallel cards and a certified autograph.
Collectors aiming to collect a master set of 2015 Topps Heritage WWE will get a head start on the release with the arrival of the newest WWE video game on Tuesday.
Every copy of WWE 2K16 for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will include a Heritage card of WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, according to the @WWEGames Twitter account. There will be two versions of the card — one with a white border and one with a blue border for the set that uses the memorable 1985 Topps baseball design.
