I am a fan of vintage baseball sets. I would love to own every Topps flagship set ever produced at some point in my life and am currently working on the 1970-1972 sets after finishing 1973 earlier this year. I now have every set from 1973 forward along with the sets from 1959 and 1960.
Topps Heritage has been a way to get an annual fix of the classic designs without the vintage prices. I have collected the set for the past 3 years and have built the set a couple other years. The stretch from 1963-65 is one of my favorites from a design perspective so even though I decided to try and cut back on the number of sets I was chasing in 2014, I couldn't pass up the 1965 design. Yesterday I received the last card I needed in the mail:
Now a face somewhat of a personal dilemma, do I collect Heritage next year. Topps will be starting on a stretch of 2 years where the designs do nothing to excite me. I will continue to attempt and streamline the sets I collect and allow for other collection focuses to earn my limited card budget. I will certainly go after all the Giants but I am leaning towards skipping the set.
Do any other collectors plan on going after the 2015 Heritage set? Any thoughts on the Heritage line as we inch forward in time?
