A 2018 Heritage Card Which Came To Me Through The Space/Time Rift In My Garage

As I’ve mentioned before, my garage contains a minor rift in the space/time continuum, and on occasion small objects from the future will fall through it.  Over the past couple of months, I’ve had a couple of baseball cards come through…  Here’s one that appears to be a 2018 Heritage card.

2018 Topps Heritage Bryce Harper 2
This card is both brilliant and scary at the same time.

“Brilliant” because it appears to take the replication of the 1969 Topps set to the extreme.  It wasn’t unusual for the photos used on late 1960’s cards to be several years old… and that certainly is the case here.  It’s a card from 2018, but the photo is from 2012 or 2013.

Even better, the cap is airbrushed using that minimal-effort way that was often done in the 1960’s, obscuring most of the cap behind a black, cap-shaped blob.

This card is “scary” for precisely the same reason that it’s brilliant:  It takes replication of 1969 to an extreme.  It would be disappointing as a base card, but awesome as a short-print variation.  Let’s hope the latter is the case.

How does Bryce Harper ends up as Houston’s DH?  Your guess is as good as mine.

  1. Whoa is me. I think in the 2016 Season the Astros fold and the Nationals move out of DC (yet again leaving DC teamless) to become the New Astros. Meanwhile to fill in the gap of the Nationals moving from the NL to the AL a new Expos team is created in Montreal.
