I haven’t bought baseball cards in awhile (a week) and so I bought two packs of 2010 Topps Heritage Baseball (I know I can’t resist). Heritage seems to be a popular product year after year but I am not that high on it. We’ll see.

The cards look good with the photos blending in with the vintage designs well and you can’t complain too much about a tried and true design. But Heritage is rather dull for me and I much rather open a vintage alternative like Allen and Ginter who has all those fun inserts. Maybe I am just not the target market for this product since I didn’t collect Topps way back when… what year this mimicking again? BTW, the gum tasted HORRIBLE. I had to spit it out (in shards since the gum is hard as a rock) in the middle of the street and it left a nasty aftertaste. I want to give the product on thumbs down on the gum alone because you would think Topps would have figure out how to make decent tasting gum by now. Still I understand this product could appeal to set builders and I guess older collectors who remember the golden age of card collecting. It certainly isn’t the worst product out there now.
