Sporting News All-Star cards return in Topps 2019 Heritage set

  • Baseball When one thinks of baseball institutions, the Topps Co. usually comes to mind quickly, and for good reason.The undisputed King of Baseball Cards has remained an iconic brand in the collectibles industry for seven decades, pumping out multiple baseball sets each season to satisfy a continually growing and rabid base of sports-card collectors.At Sporting News, where baseball ties also run deep, we recognize a kindred spirit when we see one — which is why we’ve re-established a cool partnership with our cardboard-loving cousins.MORE: Ranking the top 15 baseball card sets from the '80s and '90s For the first time in eight years, we’re excited to announce the return of the Sporting News All-Stars in a Topps baseball card set. These cards, which first appeared in a Topps set in 1959 and continued periodically through 2011, make their comeback in Topps' 2019 Heritage set, which goes on sale today.The Heritage set traditionally features current players on cards modeled after Topps sets from the past. This year, the 500-card collection has the design of Topps’ 1970 set. That means the new Sporting News All-Stars cards will match the faux-newspaper design in the vein of the print edition of Sporting News — then called The Sporting News — that appeared in that 1970 set.
