After it arrived, I googled this year's Yankees team card to compare the two. I was surprised to see that there wasn't one. Seems like a miss by Topps, who does a pretty good job in making sure that Heritage has a lot of the subsets and quirks from the original set.
So why aren't team cards included? My hunch is that Topps releases Heritage so early in the season that team photos aren't available yet. Not sure if that's why, but it seems logical. Still pretty surprising to me though, and I think it would have been cool if Topps had a wrapper redemption or some other promotion later in the season for the team cards.
Another cool option would be to release the cards in series.
What do you think? Bummer to not have team cards? Or no big deal?
