Coffee Break:2022 Topps Heritage Minors Baseball

*it's been awhile, but here is my coffee-well not awhile on that-but awhile on a hobby box break. let's see how this one goes today*

Today's product isn't a product for everyone, but it does aim at a specific audience. Mainly the prospectors but the ones who enjoy Heritage and its throwback designs may have something to say as well.

It's not a product that has fared too well for me in the past, so maybe today is the day.

*takes a sip before gets ready to rip*

Every hobby box of 2022 Heritage Minors baseball comes with 18 packs of 8 cards. Boxes come with 2 autographs and boxes are a little less than $50.

*takes a sip, begins to rip*
When you bust open the box of Minors, you are greeted with three-card box toppers. These are done in the 1973 Topps Baseball Pin-Up design.

Speaking of the 1973 design, just like the MLB version,
the MILB version tackles that same design as well.


There are 200 cards in the base set, plus 20 extra Sp cards to make it a 220-card set. There are base cards and subsets that feature more than one player as well.

You can find the following parallels in Heritage Minors,
Blue /99, Green /75, Black /50, Flip Stock, Gold /18, and Red 1/1.
Gold /18 falls 1:215 packs.


1973 Topps 1953 Reprint Set falls 1:5 packs and has 15 cards to collect.

1973 Topps Pack Cover Set falls 1: 5 packs and has 20 cards to collect.

1973 Topps Tarjetas has 15 cards that falls 1:5 packs.

Doesn't appear to be any big hits today, but, with prospects, I guess you never know until they play the game.

  1. I mean these cards are worth breaking just for the MiLB team names! Good stuff

  2. The fun part about these prospect sets is wait to see which players pan out and become superstars.

    P.S. I like the look of that 1973 Topps Pack Cover insert set.


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
