There’s a new addition to the Heritage baseball card line — and it’s from 1951.

2015 Topps Heritage ’51 Baseball is a boxed set homage to the 1951 Topps red-back and blue-back cards that predated the company’s flagship arrival the following year.

Releasing on Ocotber 28, there are 104 base cards, one autograph and a mix of 21 parallel cards per set. There are 24 sets per case.

There are 10 Red (back) parallels per set, five Blue, three Green, two Black and one Gold. Meanwhile, 28 players signed autographs for the brand. Topps said it intends to use on-card autos in most instances in the product, but that some stickers may be used.

The autographs have Blue (/25), Green (/10), Black (/5) and 1/1 Gold parallels for collectors to chase.

    As a HUGE fan of Topps Heritage cards, I like this idea. However, I do not like the use of stickers on any Topps Heritage product. That’s the one thing I like about Topps Heritage over the years. There autos have always been on the card. A few years ago, I was going to collect Topps Heritage Minor League until I found out that it had sticker autos so I stayed away from it. Sticker autos cheapens the cards in my opinion. If you do that with this upcoming product, I’m afraid you will eventually start using sticker autos in mainstream Topps Heritage products. Keep the autographs real — that’s why people collect Topps Heritage Real One Autographs!

    As long as the case collation isn’t bad, I’m game. Not so large, it may be a fun set to try to complete. I like the looks of these and hope the card backs have interesting tidbits. Thanks……….

    these are gross I wont buy a single pack

    From Olds: It’s sold as a set, not packs.

    Red autographs are #’d to 250, (+25+10+5+1 parallels)so 291 total autos per player
    291 * 28 = 8184 sets made. (Assuming all are released)

    104 base cards
    10 red mini per set = 783
    5 blue = 391
    3 green = 236
    2 black = 157
    1 gold = 78

    @Mike@Colin

    Yeah the look is horrible but it is true to the Original red/blue backs cards from 1951 (other than the size)
