2011 Topps Heritage box

Description

2011 Topps Heritage is a 500-card set released March 14, 2011. Now in its 11th year, 2011 Heritage is based on the wood-paneled design of the 1962 Topps set. Each 24-pack Hobby should yield one autograph or Relic card, one over-sized box topper, eight short-printed base cards, and six inserts.

For the first time, Heritage will NOT come packaged with a stick of gum. However, packs will now contain an additional card.

Quality Control Codes

To help distinguish between base cards, inserts, variations, gimmicks, and "hits," a seven-digit quality control code has been printed on the back of each card. The breakdown is as follows.

9911104 = Babe Ruth Special (#135, #141 and #143)

9911105 = Rookie Parade short prints (#493-#500)

9911106 = Jackie Robinson Special variations (#135-#144)

9911108 = Gimmicks (#125, #139, #279, #392, #478 and #490)

9911109 = All Green, Red, and Blue Tint variations

9911112 = All Chrome and Chrome Refractors, and black-bordered Target parallels

Variations, Errors, and Gimmicks

Tints

In the 1962 Topps set, the early press runs of the second series (cards 110-196) were printed with extra green ink. As a result, the backgrounds of a limited number of Series Two cards have a lime-green "tint" to it.

2011 Topps Heritage evokes these "Green Tint" cards with a special variation available in all packs of cards 110-196, EXCEPT for Joba Chamberlain's card #159. Instead, #159 was replaced with Joba Chamberlain's "139 kneeling ball & glove" variation (see below).

In addition, two other color tints were available exclusively in retail packs.

Blue tint: Exclusive to Wal-Mart looseys

Red tint: Exclusive to Target looseys

Like the Green Tints, the checklist on the Blue and Red Tints parallels cards 110-196 in the set.

NOTE:

  • The Tinted cards of Joakim Soria (#147), Chase Headley (#176) and Todd Helton (#190) have different photos than that used in the base set.
  • On the Green Tint version of card #163 the words "HOT CORNER GUARDIANS" are printed in yellow letters, and the Topps Heritage logo has been removed. Although some eBay sellers are treating this as an un-announced gimmick card, at the present time, there do not appear to be any Green Tints of card #163 with red letters, or base cards with yellow letters. Blue and Red Tints of this card have red letters but do not have the Topps Heritage logo.
  • The base card of the Chicago White Sox team card (#113) has a red background; mimicking the '62 Topps White Sox team card (also #113). The Wal-Mart Blue Tint version is actually purple in tone. It is unclear what exactly the Target-exclusive Red Tint actually looks like.
  • Card #184, Kurt Suzuki, has an uncorrected error (UER) where there is no position (catcher) listed on the back of the card. Same is true for the regular version of the card.

Jackie Robinson Special Variation

This 10-card set was exclusive to Hobby packs and randomly inserted at the rate of 1:50/packs. It features highlights of Jackie Robinson's career and is done in the style of the Babe Ruth Special subset.

135 "Robinson Displays Athletic Talents at Early Age"

136 "Robinson Emerges as Collegiate Star"

137 "Robinson Serves Three Years in the Army"

138 "Robinson Breaks the Game's Color Barrier"

139 "Robinson Takes ROY Honors, then MVP"

140 "Robinson Wraps Up Hall-of-Fame Career"

141 "Robinson's Legacy Lives On"

142 "Robinson Racks 'em Up"

143 "Robinson Shines in the Fall"

144 "The Robinson Resume"

Gimmicks

These six previously un-announced gimmicks parallel one corrected and five uncorrected error cards from the original 1962 Topps set.

In the original set, Hal Reniff (card #159) mistakenly appears on two different cards numbered 139. One features the same picture as #159, the other with a completely different photo. For 2011 Heritage, Joba Chamberlain also appears on only one short-printed card #139. The "139 Joba" has a different photo than his base card (#159).

In the 1962 Topps set, the back of Hobie Landrith's card (#279) lists his birth date as March 16, 1950. He was actually born March 16, 1930.

Ken Boyer's All-Star card (#392), mistakenly lists his batting average as ".392." Boyer hit .329 in 1961.

Don Zimmer's card (#478) lists him as a Cincinnati Red, despite being depicted as a New York Met. Zimmer began the season with the Mets, but a month into the season was traded to Cincinnati. Topps was unable to find a picture of Zimmer as a Red, so they used a current-year photo of him as a Met.

Clete Boyer's '62 Topps card (#490) was a reverse negative -- depicting him batting left-handed, when in fact, he was a righty. Like the Zimmer, it went uncorrected.

For 2011 Heritage, there are two different versions of cards #279, #392, #478 and #490. Bengie Molina (#279) has one card with his correct birth date of July 20, 1974, and a much rarer one with an incorrect date of July 20, 1994. Ryan Zimmerman has a version of his All-Star card (#392) that lists his batting average as .370 -- its was actually .307. David Wright has two different versions of card #478: one listing him as a Met the other as a Red. Both cards are short-printed; however, it appears that the Cincinnati Reds version is considerably tougher to find than the New York Mets card. Card #490 of Alex Rodriguez also has two versions: standard and reverse-negative. Like Wright, both cards are short-printed, but the reverse-negative (showing A-Rod with his right hand on his right hip and his bat on his left shoulder) is considerably tougher to find.

There is one additional un-announced variation that does not at first glance appear to have any provenance in the 1962 Topps set. On the back of some copies of Vladimir Guerrero's card (#125) he is listed as a pitcher. There were no errors (corrected or otherwise) on either one of Gene Woodling's 1962 cards (#125), regular or Green Tint, listing him as a pitcher. It appears that this gimmick pays homage to Phillies outfielder Jacke Davis' card in the '62 Topps set. The back of Davis' card (#521) lists him as a pitcher. Since 2011 Topps Heritage is only 500 cards, Topps reversed the "521" into "125," and gimmicked that card instead.

There was also an uncorrected spelling error on Sandy Koufax's 1962 Topps card (#5), however there does not appear to be a corresponding error on Clayton Kershaw's 2011 Heritage card (#5).

125B Vladimir Guerrero ERR (listed as pitcher on back)

139B Joba Chamberlain SP VAR (kneeling with ball & glove)

279B Bengie Molina ERR (1994 birth date)

392B Ryan Zimmerman AS ERR (.370 AVG)

478B David Wright ERR (CIN Reds)

490B Alex Rodriguez ERR RevNeg

All six of these cards have a seven-digit quality-control code of "9911108" printed on the bottom-right corner on the reverse side. The base cards have quality-control codes of 9911101 to 9911105.
