I mean - are they as stunning as the original 1972 design? No, they are not. But something about the wild-card nature of prospect cards - which is totally thrilling to me and thousands of others, likely including you - and the attempt at coming close to the '72 Topps design; well, it's good enough for me.
I bought a "blaster box" - nothing makes me feel as much like an overgrown child as I do typing those words - of 2021 Topps Heritage Minors baseball cards. And lo, it was good! These blasters really go a long way toward getting a complete 220-card base set built, and of course, they include exciting things like autographs, parallels and inserts that we collecting types like to revel in.
I reckoned you probably may already know what the base cards look like, so I'm just scanning a couple of fellas from the San Francisco Giants organization who were part of my "blaster" to give you a flavor. I already scanned a couple of the base cards I'd ordered online as a "prequel" to this blaster here. Among my other base cards were a few guys I am familiar with, but no second Wander Franco card - but I did get a Wander Franco in Action.
