2012 Topps Heritage Variations

Every year Topps gives Heritage collectors some surprise variations to search for. Usually (but not always) these mirror errors or variations from the original set that the set is based on. We don't yet know what the 2012 variations are, but there is a good chance that they will be comprised of some or all of the numbers of the 1963 Topps error and variation cards listed below. Good luck and remember to check your base cards!

#29 Rookie Stars (Error/Variation "1962"/"1963" on front of card)
#42 Stan Williams (listed as NY Yankee but LA hat on card)
#54 Rookie Stars (Error/Variation "1962"/"1963" on front of card)
