Card #52: Heritage in Every Sense of the Word

This post was drafted back in January / February 2018....
Due to what I perceived was a lack of interest on the blog, I stopped posting.  Here is the post as it originally appeared.


I just saw the checklist for 2018 Topps Heritage and I am really looking forward to it.  The 2018 Heritage design is based on 1969 Topps.  Cutch has card #50 in the set.  Do you know who was card #50 in 1969 Topps?

Yup, the Great One.
I have a copy of this card safely protected.
One day I will take scans of all my vintage cards, but in the mean time here is a shot of it stolen from Google images.

Card #51 :Happy Presidents Day!

I don't know much about cardtoons, but I do have a Jay Bellhop by them that played for the Pirates Parrots.

Such a unique oddball

I like the drawing on the front. It reminds me of the Lincoln Memorial statue.

Card #48: This Card is Action Packed

Hailing from 1994 comes this rounded embossed thicker stock card from one of my favorite 90s brands, Action Packed.

I remember buying lots of Action Packed football cards in the 90s hoping to get some sweet looking cards.
The back of the card further talks about Clemente's humanitarian efforts.

Card #47: Where'd you go Cutch?

Clemente has been getting SP photo variants in recent Topps sets.  Here is one that removes Andrew McCutchen from card number 650 in 2017 Topps and replaces it with Clemente.

The back features 5 of Clemente's prime year stats.

This version sells for significantly more than other Clemente SP photo variants.

Card #46 : Gallery of Greats

Here's another insert set that Topps has produced in the recent 5 years with a title including Greats.

It makes sense for Clemente to be included as the bronze statue outside PNC Park recognizes Clemente as The Great One.

Cards #43-45: More Golden Moments

It's Super Bowl Sunday.  Someone today will have a moment that will lead them to greatness.  Could it be a member of the Eagles leading the team to their first Super Bowl victory?  Could it be Tom Brady leading the Patriots to their 6th Superbowl?

History will be made today.  That's for sure.

I showed off another of these last week

Here are three more that I have.
