2017 Topps Heritage Minors variations come in a couple of different forms, Facsimile Signatures and Errors.

Both are on the rare side in 2017 Topps Heritage Minors packs and can be easy to miss. But if you know what to look for, they’re actually quite simple.

2017 Topps Heritage Minors Facsimile Signature variations make one small change to the base card. Regular cards have no pre-printed autograph on the front. These short prints do. Different from actual signed cards like those found in the product’s Real One Autographs, these have a copy of the player’s signature. It’s done in black and is plain to see versus real autographs.

Like MLB version of 2017 Topps Heritage, Error Variations look to the past for inspiration. These are cards done with an intentional mistake, although early ones look like it might be more of a color adjustment for the team name on the front instead. This is something that happened back in 1968 Topps Baseball, which all 2017 Heritage sets are rooted in. All of the 2017 Topps Heritage High Number Error Variations were also simple team name color switches as well.
