Come Check Out My Recently Completed 2013 Topps Update ‘Postseason Heroes’ Subset!!!

Yep, another subset has been completed.  This one is the 2013 Topps Update ‘Postseason Heroes’ set.

The 20-card set offers a nice mixture of both current players and legends.  And the design allows for a nice, large image to be the main attraction.

Here is the full set:

Ultimately, I will always get behind a set like this.  I like subsets that celebrate baseball’s great history, player achievements, and heroic play.

But, this set offers up enough ‘duds’ to leave me slightly scratching my head.  And there are also some notable omissions from the set.  And while, I know that not every set can be a complete picture of the theme, especially when dealing with a budgeted number of cards to play with, I think that this set could have been built better with these changes:

Swap Joe Carter for David Wright
Swap Andy Pettitte for Justin Verlander
Swap Greg Maddux for Edgar Renteria
Swap Miguel Cabrera for Kirk Gibson

There, there you go – a few more historic players entered and a few that have yet to truly leave their mark on the postseason omitted.

‘Postseason Heroes’ – I love the idea, and the design is grand.  I just wish that it included a few more heroes and a few less zeroes…

  1. I’d swap out Posey for a horizontal card of Brooks Robinson robbing Johnny Bench of a hit in the 1970 World Series!
