2023 Topps Heritage Baseball Variations Checklist and Gallery

Share This Post

The 2023 Topps Heritage Baseball variations remain a fixture of the retro card brand, offering short-printed base versions for top MLB stars and rookies.

Collectors can find plenty of SP/SSP cards all done in the 1974 Topps Baseball style.

2023 Topps Heritage Baseball Variations Details

Topps provided all the 2023 Topps Heritage Baseball variations on the 2023 Heritage MLB checklist, so collectors know exactly which players are featured this year.

Listed in order of Hobby rarity, the lineup includes Image Variations (1:68 packs), Player Name Position Swap Variations (1:289 packs), Nickname Variations (1:1,954 packs), Error Variations (1:2,930 packs), and Throwback Uniform Variations (1:10,469 packs).

The only base short prints cards not specifically listed with the odds are the Rookie Short Print Variations. These rookies replace the common player in the base checklist.

Even though it seems to come up every year, the Los Angeles Angels are always listed by Topps as just “Angels.” Therefore, the base cards that omit the “Los Angeles” on the front, leaving a blank spot at the top compared to most of the cards, are not short prints or errors unless marked as such on the back.

2023 Topps Heritage Baseball Black & White Image Variations

Another base short print set arrives via the Black & White Image Variations. Averaging 1:205 Hobby packs, all 400 base cards are available as black-and-white photo editions. However, this variation is not applied to the high-series cards (#401-500).

2023 Topps Heritage Baseball Variations Tips

As has been the case for a few years now, the 2023 Topps Heritage Baseball Variations are clearly noted on the back. Turn over the card and look below the stats for verification.

This feature can be used for Black & White Image Variations (“B&W”), Image Variations (“IMAGE”), Player Name Position Swap Variations (“POSITION”), Nickname Variations (“NICKNAME”), Error Variations (“ERROR”), and Throwback Uniform Variations (“THROWBACK”).

The Rookie Short Print cards are the only variation option not marked with added text on the back. However, since there are no other base cards for these players in the product, there should be no confusion about what you have.

2023 Topps Heritage Baseball Variations Codes

Even though the variations are noted, the CMP code is another way to identify the 2023 Topps Heritage Baseball Variations. Refer to the final three digits in the small CODE#CMP at the bottom of the card (on the back).

Please note that only base codes are listed below and these aren’t actually needed to confirm a variation since you can normally just look for the exact text printed on the card.

  • Base (#1-400) – #531
  • Base SP (#401-500) – #550
  • Base Chrome – #551
  • Rookie Short Print Variation – #526
  • Error Variation – #565
  • Player Name Position Swap Variation – #566
  • Throwback Variation – #567
  • Image Variation – #568
  • Nickname Variation – #569
