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?
I won't try to collect a Heritage set until possibly 2020. (You can bet I'll be collecting it in 2024). The SPs make it impossible for me. If it was the only thing I collected then fine, but I ain't got no time for that.ReplyDelete
P.S.: I love the 1967 Topps design.
I keep telling myself that I won't go after it, but I'll cave like I always do. My local Target goes on a long stretch where the only good blasters are Heritage. My will power sucks sometimes.ReplyDelete
I was going to comment, but basically I could cut and paste what Matthew said. Damn you, Topps.ReplyDelete
The 1966 is sort of "middle of the pack" for me... I don't like it as much as 1965 (for example), but it ranks higher than 1960 - 1962 and 1968. I'm planning on doing the same thing I did this year: Buy a hobby box, buy a few blasters, track down the teams & players I would collect regardless and the rest falls into the category of "Oh, well". As long as short prints are involved, I don't even consider the possibility of completing the set, I just live with a partial set and move on.ReplyDelete
I got most of the way through 2014 Heritage, but I ran out of steam at some point and still have about 25 short-prints to go, along with a handful of the regular base cards. I may or may not get around to finishing it.ReplyDelete
