The 1972 design is up next for Heritage. It was (and probably still is) the funkiest of Topps designs. It just screams early '70s. I didn't like it at all back in 1972 and I didn't buy as many cards as I had the previous couple of years. Since then the look has really grown on me and it is now one of my favorites.
The set was Topps biggest to date, with 787 cards. The massive size allowed several subsets, the largest of which were the...
Here are my mock-ups of both the base card and In Action. I put base card Bryant at 1970s Wrigley Field. The In Action card is at Wrigley today.
The 1972 set has a feature that is unique to the Cubs and if Heritage reproduces it, I may have to spend a bundle.
There were four Cubs players got got some extra green on the team name. Compare the bottom of the C and S and on the card on the right you'll see green instead of yellow.
Here's my Bryant card with the same treatment.
If Topps reproduces this error in 2021 Heritage, I'm sure they'll make those cards super short prints. Having to chase four of those could get very expensive.
