New Heritage Variations
I learned about two possible super short prints today in 2009 heritage. The first which has shown up on ebay is a name variation on card #70 Tom Glavine. The variation lists his name on the front as "Thom". This apparently duplicates an error card in the original 1960 set (see the card list above). It looks like this one might be just as rare as the Santana and Smoltz variations. Stay tuned for more on this card!
I also learned from my friend Brent that it appears the Hanley Ramirez All Star
short print card is featured as a regular back AND a light back. I have noticed
several light variations in regards to the olive back, but none have been apparent
enough to call variations. I have been informed that this light back SP is very
noticeable. These light backs were also present in the 1960 set.
The first retail has also made an appearance. The walmart packs will have Mayo
inserts in them. It will be up to collectors to decide if these belong in the
master set, as they do not have the word heritage on them.
Stay tuned for more information. I would like to thank Brett (brettandbecca) and my pals over on the collector's universe message board for breaking this info.
