Hobby Box Break #16 – 2016 Topps Heritage

Here we go! Heritage is my favorite set of the year and I picked up my box last night. Here’s what I pulled.

Trout is on the box. That’s three years in a row that he’s been featured on the box. Congrats on the hat trick!

My box topper was a ad panel. I’m not really a fan of these since they feature cards in the set. I’d prefer a buyback or one of the rarer pulls.

Who wants it?

These three packs are traveling to the three lucky fellas my kids and I pulled from a Crown Royale sack. Congrats and thanks for reading-  John H, Chris R, and Jeff W!

My first card was this Reds team card. Frazier is currently a White Soxian(?), though.

Short Prints! My budget keeps me from collecting these each year. I really like the Cano pic, though!  I think I have a few readers who collect the Master set so I’ll probably be dividing these out. Let me know if you’d like 1-2 of them!

THOR gets a close-up! Sorry about the glare on these pics. I didn’t notice how bad it was until I started writing. I’m going to hang on to Noah since there are a few SP’s I’d like and he’s one. I think I should have received 8 total in my box so chances are one of the 3 packs I sent out has a shortie.

New Age Performers have never interested me. These are ready for a new home.IMG_0665

I do collect the THEN & NOW, now (presently (at this moment in time)). I also collect Kershaw so I’m happy with this pull!

I also enjoy the history lesson on each FLASHBACKS insert. I’ll need plenty of these to complete the sets!

My favorite animal is a Tiger. This is actually a pretty simple but pleasing design. I don’t collect Relics, though, so this one is set aside for Julie at A Cracked Bat.

I just noticed that I didn’t pull any Chrome. Did they finally do away with it? I’m not really a fan so that’s nice if they did.

Final Tally-

170 – base (425)

11 – inserts

1- relic

1- ad panel

7 – SP

NO doubles!

I think I’m going to buy the base set off eBay since I didn’t really pull money card from this box that I could turn into another box.

Let me know if you can help me with some of the inserts, though!

Also, let me know if you need some of my base!
