The past decade has seen multiple efforts from Topps to recreate the love of their older sets. Heritage of course being the flagship effort, with other releases such as Archives and Fan Favorites also promoting prior designs with current players.
I decided to make this Blue Jay Monday effort about a few cards that I received from Pat at the Hot Corner blog that relived the past.
First, from the 2012 Heritage release, comes this '63 sticker insert of Jose Bautista
The next two cards come from the 2012 Topps Archives set (or Heritage lite as I've called it...)
With Topps limiting the number of SPs in the set to 40 (41 with the Harper RC), I was very surprised that the Jays were represented twice. I've spoken many times about the duo you see above, so I will not bore you with more. All I'll say is that it's nice to have these 2 short prints as part of the overall Jays collection here.
Pat, thanks again!! I'll be sure to get you something in return as soon as I can...
thanks for reading, Robert
