2021 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

Collector Type: Set

Continuing where 2021 Topps Heritage left off, 2021 Topps Heritage High Number takes us back to the summer of 1972.

The base set consists of (225) cards. The last (25) cards #701-725 are Short Prints. Parallels include Black Border #’ed/50, and Flip Stock #’ed/5.

It should be noted that card #216 of Cavan Biggio has now been printed. This card was meant for the regular Topps Heritage set released earlier this year, but didn’t make it in due to an error.

(100) cards have Chrome parallels. Chrome parallels include Purple Hot Box, Refractor #’ed/572, Red Border #’ed/372, Black Border #’ed/72, Gold Border #’ed/5 (Hobby), and Superfractor #’ed 1/1.

(54) cards have Base Minis #’ed/100, and (97) cards have French Text Back O-Pee-Chee versions.

Image Variations include Action, City Uniform/Throwback, Error, Missing Stars, Nickname, and Team Color Swap. The Image Variation type is listed beneath the card number on the back. No need to check the CMP codes.

Autographs include Real One Autographs, Real One Dual Autographs, 1972 World Series Champion Autographs, and 1972 Cut Signatures.

Autograph Relics include Clubhouse Collection Autographed Relics, and Clubhouse Collection Dual Autographed Relics.

Relics include Clubhouse Collection Relics, Clubhouse Collection Dual Relics, Clubhouse Collection Triple Relics, and Clubhouse Collection Quad Relics.

Inserts include 1972 World Series Highlights, 1972 Topps Venezuela Stamps, Award Winners, Combo Cards, Now and Then, Roberto Clemente 3,000, and Rookie Performers.

Box Toppers include 1972 Topps Oversized, 1972 Topps Oversized Autographs, 1972 Baseball Posters, and 1972 Topps Originals.

Waiting for every collector inside a hobby box is (1) autograph or relic. Most likely a relic from the Clubhouse Collection is what you will find. But if you’re really lucky you might find an autograph or other high-end hit.

I’ve been opening some really well-balanced boxes recently. This one is right up there. I pulled an autograph, Chrome Black Border #’ed/72, and a very decent 1972 Topps Originals Buyback Box Topper.
