2011 Heritage: Jackie Robinson Galore

The newest Baseball set for the 2011 season is out at your local retail store. It is Topps Heritage, and it features their old 1962 card set design. These wood bordered cards have vintage looking cardboard backs and tons of inserts and short prints to chase after. Before I get to the Dodger base cards to the set I wanted to point out some short prints that perked my interest.

There is a 10 card Jackie Robinson set highlighting his life and career. They are numbered #135 to #144 and are short printed to 1 for every 50 packs. I've read that they are showing up at a rate of about 5 to 6 per case. Below are pics of each one.

All I have left to say is that I badly want these cards.

Not only can you find a short printed Robinson, but you can also find a limited insert game-used uniform piece of Jackie Robinson.
