2012 Topps Heritage

2012 Topps Heritage baseball cards - Joey Votto and Mat Latos

Nice pulls from OMGreds fan @RyanSimps

2012 Topps Heritage hit the streets yesterday. If you listen very closely, you can still hear the subtle sound of packs being ripped open across the country. Ah, the sounds of spring!

Being full grown adults here at OMGreds, it’s no surprise that we dig baseball cards and Topps Heritage always gets us pumped. This year’s edition, based on the 1963 Topps set, is no exception. Heck, the past few years have all been great when it comes to the retro designs.

The Joey Votto and Mat Latos cards pictured above were pulled by OMGreds reader Ryan Simpson (@RyanSimps). Are they gorgeous, or what? That Votto is stunning and we’re stoked to see Mat Latos in a Reds uniform for an early 2012 release – even if it is “airbrushed.”
