The 2024 Topps Heritage Baseball variations checklist runs deep. For those familiar with the nostalgia bomb brand, themes are in line with what has been used in recent years. They include image swaps, intentional errors, color switch-ups, nicknames and the always popular throwbacks.

All told, there are almost 150 variations in 2024 Topps Heritage featuring nearly 90 players.

Image Variations

These are the most common variations in Topps’ arsenal. Used across a lot of brands and sports, these are pretty basic in that they simply change up the photo.

Exclusive to hobby packs, they’re also among the easier SSPs to find. At 1:65 packs, they’re a little easier than every third box.

Throwback Variations

It’s not just the 1975 design that’s a blast from the past in 2024 Topps Heritage Baseball. Throwback Uniform Variations are another place to find different photos. Here, there’s a consistent theme across all of the cards. Players are shown in uniforms worn during Turn Back the Clock games.

These are historically the most valuable Topps Heritage variations due to their long odds and ensuing rarity. This year, according to the odds, it will take almost 8,500 hobby packs and over 20,000 blaster packs to land one.

Nickname Variations

Look at the photo and these can slip by. Instead, check players’ names. Nickname Variations remove the first and last names, replacing them with a popular monicker.

Missing Signature Variations

1975 Topps Baseball cards have facsimile signatures on the card fronts. 2024 Topps Heritage Baseball cards have facsimile signature on the card fronts. Missing Signature Variations do not.

Error Variations

Is an error that’s done on purpose really an error? That’s debatable but one of the longest running Heritage variation theme continues. However, it’s a much smaller lineup than a lot of other years. Cole Ragans and Corbin Carroll are the only 2024 Topps Heritage Error Variations. One uses a different player’s photo and the other removes the Rookie Cup.

Color Swap Variations

The base set uses a lot of color. A lot. To that end, Color Swap Variations don’t stand out unless you memorize the different combinations. And there are a lot of them. A lot.

With these, borders change and, in many instances, so does the team name.

It’s worth noting that Emerson Hancock’s Color Swap doesn’t actually change things up. The only difference is on the back with the standard variation label.

How to Find 2024 Topps Heritage Baseball Variations

For the past few years, Topps has made it easy to tell if you have a variation even if you don’t know what’s going on with it. The reason is simple – SSPs are labeled as such. 2024 is no different. You don’t even need the small print codes, either.

Simply look at the card number on the back. Not on do variations have a label, but they tell you the exact kind.
