2020 Topps Heritage Needs List

Back in 2014 when I finished my 1971 Topps set, I called it my greatest collecting achievement and I still stand by that. [I really should look into finding a new achievement to strive for!]

The 1971 set is my all-time favorite and I have been looking forward to this year's Heritage set since I did the math and figured out 2020 would be the year I would get all the freshly printed lower-case goodness. Topps has thrown in a lot of set easter eggs, including the most obvious tribute to Thurman Munson's legendary card No. 5 with Gary Sanchez's play at the plate No. 5 card.



With all the similarities, there are differences too, as the position has been updated from "c" to "catcher." On the back, Sanchez should have been looking off but I really appreciate the amount of detail Topps did in making the backs look the same.

When I get the Heritage base set together I will put together a complete list of the easter eggs that carry through much of the set.

Hi - I am working on the base card (plus 401-500 short prints) version of this set.

I just posted today with all the inserts I have available here:
https://subjectiveandarbitrary.blogspot.com/2020/04/quite-possibly-worst-collecting-idea.html

Don't know if you have any of the higher numbers for trade, but at the very least, maybe we have some cards we can swap 1-400?

I have eight base cards - 45, 68, 81, 173, 174, 187, 213, and 346 from your wantlist.

For the inserts I have bazooka 2, 9, 21; Giants seasons 17 and 20; BF-4, 12, and 15; NAP-16 and 25; and News Flashback NF-12.
