So I know you're all dying to know what I got in my 2012 Heritage blasters.
Well first off, I'd like to mention that I really like this year's set. The 1963 set is a fun and super colorful design that works really well. If I weren't down on collecting Heritage, I'd probably try to put it together. I like it a ton better than last year's set.
Now, The picture I showed in yesterday's post showed three blasters. I bought the middle one on Tuesday and opened it that night. I picked up the other two on my way home from work Thursday but decided to do a post on all three results. Like I mentioned, I was really surprised Wal-Mart had them day one. My store never has any set day one.
Anyway, on with the busts.
Overall I'm very impressed with the set. I love the look and feel and it really captures the 1963 set well. Heritage rarely disappoints in general and this year is no exception. I won't complete the set and may not even purchase much more (more on that in a second) but I like what I'm seeing here.
I was at the local shop today and he had Heritage in stock. Good price on boxes too but I resisted. Instead I picked up 70 cards that I needed for my 1971 set. Plus it was cheaper than the box! The only reason I'm even bothering to mention this is because it's simply the first time I've done it. I took the route to help my 1971 set as opposed to picking up the new stuff. I'm always tempted by the new boxes/packs and such but this time I really resisted. Felt kinda weird but great for my set (got the Seaver and Marichal to name two).
