Bowman Heritage 2019 Cubs

Topps brought back the Bowman Heritage brand after a twelve year haitus.  The cards were only available through the Topps Online Store. 

The checklist is divided into to sets.  There are 121 cards in the veterans and rookies set while the prospect set has 129 cards.  The Cubs landed three veterans and four prospects.

Topps chose the 1953 Bowman design.  Its the same design used on Bowman Heritage 2006.  I use the word "design" very lightly because the 1953 Bowman design was just a picture with a white background.  There was nothing else, no words, logos, autographs -- just the picture.


The three veterans were Bryant, Rizzo, and Nick Castellanos.  The glaring omission would have to be Javier Baez.  It's been a while since he's been left out of anything Topps put out.



Thanks goodness that the backs of the cards have the players names and other info.  Otherwise, I wouldn't know who three of the four are.  Look them over and see if you have any clue.

They are...




top row Aramis Ademan and Miguel Amaya
bottom row Nico Hoerner and Keegan Thompson

With these now in hand, I am officially finished with 2019.  I'll have the decade wrap up tomorrow.
