Walked into our Wal-Mart this morning and they had some new cards to include the 2014 Topps Heritage rack packs containing 20 cards. I've never been a huge fan of the heritage cards. This goes against my motto "love the retro" but the 2014 cards didn't do anything to change my mind. Don't get me wrong. I think Topps did a good job recreating the 1965 look. It just isn't for me. The one card I did like was the Jose Altuve card. The orange uni with the blue had looked sharp and I didn't mind the dugout shot. The Latos card was funny if nothing else. I also liked the alternate white Mets had Matt Harvey is wearing.

Maybe the cards in this specific pack didn't help. Johan Santana was the big star and there were no inserts. Kind of a bust. I did receive two rookie stars cards but that was it. Looking at the checklists it does look like there is quite a bit more this set has to offer. Beckett also has a nice write-up on the set detailing some of the highlights if you'd like to find out some more detail. Anyone who likes the retro looking cards should pick these up. As for me I won't buy anymore. Again it isn't for a lack of effort on Topps' part. The lack of action shots just doesn't do it for me.
