2009 Topps Heritage Variations Confirmed

Posted by houstoncollector on March 20, 2009

I had asked Topps for this previously, and it looks like they decided to make a press release of it.  I know that it’s been release elsewhere, but here’s the news for those of you who haven’t seen it yet.  Essentially, there are seven variations in 2009 Topps Heritage baseball, extremely short-printed, but no clue what the ratio is.

# 58 Conor Jackson
Variation: Rays logo on card
Mimics: Original # 58 Gino Cimoli

# 70 Tom Glavine
Variation: Spelled “Thom”
Mimics: Original # 70 Lew Burdette

# 102 Adrian Gonzalez
Variation: Rangers logo on card
Mimics: Original # 102 Kent Hedley

# 346 Fred Lewis
Variation: Randy Winn’s image
Mimics: Original # 346 J.C. Martin

# 407 Randy Winn
Variation: Fred Lewis’s image
Mimics: Original # 407 Gary Peters

# 445 John Smoltz
New Variation: Featured in Red Sox Uniform

# 488 Hanley Ramirez / All Star
Variation: Featured in Red Sox Uniform
Mimics: Original # 488 Norm Cash

I’m less upset about these than I might be normally, because with one exception, they’re based on variations that existed in the 1960 product. So essentially, Topps is paying homage to the product of the past, although it would have been nice to have had this as a selling point to begin with with pull ratios, but I guess we can’t have it all. Here’s an image of one of the variations.


Note: This is the variation, not the normal version.
