First Look: 2012 Topps Heritage High Number


By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

If you wanted more Topps Heritage, you’re getting Topps Heritage — and it’s coming in just 15 days.

Topps announced Tuesday that it will release a 100-card 2012 Topps Heritage High Number boxed set exclusively via

The set will include the players who missed the checklist for the early season release — Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper for starters — and every set will include one on-card autograph. It also will include another of Ichiro Suzuki‘s first cards as a member of the New York Yankees.

Among the rookies slated to sign for the release include Harper, Oakland’s Yoenis Cespedes, Texas ace Yu Darvish and Boston’s Will Middlebrooks among others.

The release is the second online-only exclusive this year as it released 2012 Topps Mini — a shrunken version of its flagship set — in August.

Heritage High Number will arrive on Oct. 17.

    Oh wow.. thats awesome! I ony have a few more SP’s left so this is definatly tempting. I wonder this: Will it be card # 501-600? Also i’m assuming the set is already wrapped up and such. Can’t wait for more on this. Wonder how bad my wallet will hate me…

    I called Topps today and was told that the set is going to be delayed until early November at best. They are waiting on autographs. I also asked how much the set would be and was told that the price has not be set yet.
