Again, the base set borrows the design from the 1965 Topps set. One of my personal vintage favorites. There are some great looking cards in this set, but the Eric Sogard is really cool. The glasses of Eric Sogard are highly underrated and are cool to see on a baseball card. The set also features some players showing off some cool hair.
My personal favorites are the Bryce Harper comb over and the Colby Rasmus mullet. Harper always seem to have cool hair. We've gone from mohawk early on in his career to this...Well played. Colby I am not so sure about. The hair looks like something from Kenny Powers. Perhaps Colby has a future as a gym teacher in North Carolina.
The League Leaders cards are cool too and a great copy from the originals in the 1965 set. The backs are cool too and again a great copy. Sorry I did not put a scan up on the back of the card.
The World Series cards are also a great throwback to the 1965 Topps set. Well, the Cardinals won the 1964 World Series so the final outcome of the cards in the 65 set was better. There are still good cards in the Heritage set for Cardinals fans. I like this Wacha card from Game 2 of the Series.
There are also some great update cards in Heritage. Plenty of players in new uniforms and Topps actually did a pretty good job on these cards. Yes they are airbrushed, but they are well done. It was nice to see a Jhonny Peralta and Peter Bourjos in a Cardinals uni.
