I’ve always been a fan of Topps’ Heritage sets. I wish more companies could run something like these, but Topps is the only one that has the “history” to do it. They don’t mail it in, either.
I decided that I want to put together the 2015 Heritage base set, so I picked up three blasters at Walmart. I hope that this will allow me to complete it and get close to completing the insert sets as well. Not sure if I will finish those insert sets off or just move the cards.
My first blaster ended up exactly as I would expect. The odds were straight on and I didn’t hit anything spectacular. I wasn’t upset with that, since the base set is my goal.
The nWo inserts are about one per box, so I don’t anticipate finishing off that insert set. I was really excited to hit the Big Boss Man (that’s who he will always be to me) card, as he was one of my favorites as a kid. I remember his feud with Hulk Hogan and I really wanted him to take Hogan down. I guess that prepared me for a lifetime of being disappointed by WVU football.
I’ll end up putting the black borders that I have into a lot and selling them on eBay. Since I’m not interested in the relics, I am selling the three unopened pack on eBay. Feel free to make an offer if you’re interested in them.
