THIS DESCRIPTION HAS BEEN MODIFIED FROM THE CATALOG PRINT VERSION.
Knowledgeable collectors of the Topps Heritage series realize the extreme difficulty of gathering a "Master" set. Presented is a complete 2003 Topps Heritage Master Set with every short-print, variation, insert, chrome, refractor, game-used and Team Topps Legends autographed subsets. Comprised of nearly (800) cards, this "vintage-themed" set is derived from the 1954 Topps series, with all cards in NM-MT condition. Highlighting this group is the (430) card "base" set with additional variations along with both (100) card chrome (#ed to 1954) and chrome refractor (#ed to 554) sets (missing Griffey). Also included is a near complete "Clubhouse" Collection subset, missing two cards. The base Clubhouse Collection set features luminaries such as Duke Snider, Willie Mays, Al Kaline, Eddie Mathews, Ernie Banks, Alex Rodriguez and Albert Pujols (missing Kerry Wood). The dual game-used Clubhouse Collection includes Eddie Mathews/Jones and Ernie Banks/Wood (missing Duke Snider/Green) all serially numbered to 54. The represented Team Topps Legends autographs featuring Jim Bunning, Luis Aparicio, Al Kaline, Duke Snider and Larsen is also present. The Grandstand Glory subset features pieces of seats from current and bygone stadiums, along with the players who played in them, and is also complete. The Flashback, New Age Performers and Then & Now subsets complete this challenging endeavor.
