Final Heritage Totals...A Lot of Cards

Heritage was pretty simple when it first came out in 2001.  The set had 407 cards.  There was no high number set.  The was no minor league set.  There were just four basic insert sets (Chrome, Classic Renditions, Then and Now, and New Age Performers).  Even the relic and autograph cards were kept fairly simple.

Not so much any more.

The base set this year has 500 cards.  Toss in another 225 from the high numbers.  While you at it, add 225 more from the minor league edition.  And inserts?  I counted twelve insert sets.  Relics and Autos?  Too many to count.

My 2001 Heritage Cubs team set has 14 cards, 11 base and 3 inserts.

The 2015 team set?  Its just a bit bigger.  A big bit bigger.  No, just plain crazy bigger.  How does 57 cards sound.  Yes, bigger!

That is a lot of cards!


  1. Going after the teams sets now is a commitment. They do like nice all together!

  2. 57 is frigging crazy. Had no idea the run for a team was that large. I wonder if any team is higher?
