2019 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

Last October while diving into my box of Heritage High Number I was greeted with a Shohei Ohtani Real One RC Auto.  Trust me.  I did not see that coming.  Sure it was always a possibility, but the odds of pulling one were incredibly rare.  But that’s proof big hits can happen anywhere and to anyone.

Hobby boxes of 2019 Topps Heritage High Number cost about $100 right now.  Every box has (24) packs and a box topper.

Continuing where the regular Heritage set left off, Heritage High Number goes from #501-#725.  The last (25) cards are Short Prints.

Parallels include Black Border #’ed/50 (Hobby), and Flip Stock #’ed/5 (Hobby).  Those Flip Stock parallels are the easiest ones to miss.  That’s why you need to take you’re time with a product like this.  A Flip Stock parallel could easily end up being the big hit of the box.  CMP codes don’t apply to them either.  Feeling the front and back of each card is a must to be sure the sides aren’t reversed.

Outside of the Black Border and Flip Stock parallels there are a bunch of cards that can be pulled where the CMP code does come in handy:

  • Base (#501-#700) – #321
  • Base SP (#701-#725) – #329
  • French Text – #322 or #330
  • Silver Metal – #340
  • Error – #341
  • Trade – #342
  • Throwback – #343
  • Action Image – #344
  • Team Name Color – #345
  • Nickname – #346

Minis #’ed/100 and Chrome cards are also possible pulls.  The Chrome cards have Hot Box Purple, Base Refractor #’ed/570, Black #’ed/69, Gold #’ed/5 (Hobby), and Superfractor #’ed 1/1 parallels.

Inserts include 1970 Topps Candy Lids (Target only), 1970 Topps Cloth Stickers (Walmart/Meijers only), 1970 Topps Player Story Booklets (Retail only), 1970 Topps Scratch Off, Award Winners, Combo Cards, Now and Then, Rookie Performers, The Hammer’s Greatest Hits, 1970 Topps Super Baseball Box Topper, 1970 Topps Poster Box Topper, and 1970 Topps Originals Box Topper.

Hobby boxes each contain (1) autograph or relic.  Most of the time you’re hit will be something from the Clubhouse Collection.

Relic types include Clubhouse Collection Relics, Clubhouse Collection Dual Relics, Clubhouse Collection Triple Relics, Clubhouse Collection Quad Relics, Clubhouse Collection Autograph Relics, and Clubhouse Collection Dual Autograph Relics.

Autograph types include Real One Autographs, Real One Dual Autographs, The Hammer’s Greatest Hits Autographs, and 1970 Cut Signatures.

2019 Topps Heritage High Number is one that most set collectors should enjoy.  The mix of parallels, variations, and new rookies gives you plenty to look for outside of the main hit.  Its a relatively small set you should be able to put together quickly.  Former Phillies Manager and current Hitting Coach Charlie Manuel’s rookie card comes from 1970 Topps.  I wonder if any of those made it into the 1970 Topps Originals Box Toppers?

We have one more set this year to feature the 1970 Topps design – 2019 Topps Heritage MiLB.  Then we move on to the 1971 Topps design.  1971 Topps is one of the most condition sensitive sets ever made because of the black borders.
