2017 Heritage Cubs - The Inserts

Moving on to the Heritage Cubs inserts, and there are a bunch!



It's the 1968 game and four Cubs are in the set.  Only Ron Santo was in the original.  Even better, three of the four Cubs reach base, and Bryant hits a dinger!  It also made me smile that Rizzo is hit by a pitch, something that happens frequently to him because he crowds the plate so much.


Three New Age Performers, wich is a Cubs first,  They had two in 2004, 2006, and 2016.

Then and Now went Fergie crazy!  The top card with two Cubs is obviously my favorite.

More discs this year, and Rizzo is the only Cub.

Did I say that Heritage went Fergie crazy?  Here's one more, though the picture is not from 1968.

It was on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1971.

And the best for last...Baseball Flashbacks with Billy Williams!

That makes 13 insert  cards in all.


  1. Making Rizz a HBP for the game insert shows some nice attention to detail by Topps - glad to see someone knows what's going on over there!

  2. I like the Flashback cards. I still don't know what "New Age" refers to. I know it was an honor to be in the set and that the game required it of some players but it's always bothered me that Ron Santo was a "Pop Out".
