2017 Topps Heritage Hobby Box Break

The long time favorite Topps Heritage set is back for another release. This time around, there are some significant changes, though, and I’m not sure they’re all for the better. This year, it parallels the 1968 Topps set, and includes some tributes to errors from that set. Returning are the some of the standard insert sets, including baseball flashbacks, news flashbacks, as well as relics and autographs. These all appear to be much rarer than in past years. Does that mean they will hold more value? Or just be harder to complete a set?

Perhaps the most significant change this year is to the base set SPs. For the past many years, the base set was 1-425, with the SPs being 426-500. This year, the SPs have expanded to 401-500. They still fall one in every three packs. With 100 SPs, though, this means a full case of cards would not have enough SPs, with perfect collation, to complete the set. Is that an improvement?

While there seem to be fewer overall inserts, there are a lot more buybacks. This set features the same line of “Rediscover Topps” buybacks as Series 1, with many included per box.
